A K Antony organises Congress leaders meet to discuss upcoming assembly elections
Senior Congress leader A K Antony has organised a high level meeting of senior Congress leaders to discuss how the party is going to confront the upcoming assembly elections in Haryana, Maharashtra, Jharkhand and Jammu and Kashmir.
In most of these states, the Congress has significant presence. It has the potential to show exceptional performance in the states like Maharashtra.
What has made the latest Congress high level meeting different from the previous ones is that the latest meeting has not been conducted in the presence of the members of the Nehru family – the absence of the members of the family in a meeting of this much importance is very unusual in the point of view of the Congress.
If the absence is viewed in connection with the Congress scion’s recent announcement regarding his resignation, it will take to several conclusions unpleasing for the old party.
Meanwhile, the Congress leaders have dismissed the rumours surrounding the meeting, and called it as an informal meeting.
Anyway, the development clearly indicates that until the internal issues of the party are resolved the leader from Kerala will continue to call similar informal meetings.
Is this the emergence of a new national leader from the Congress camp?
