Factional fight mars unity of Congress in Haryana
As the final candidate list for the upcoming Assembly Election in Haryana has come out, the issue of infighting in the party in the state has become more evident.
Last day, a group of Congress workers from Haryana organised protest outside the residence of Congress president Sonia Gandhi, against the party’s election management committee for the upcoming election and the party’s present state leadership.
They raised slogans against former Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda and Congress veteran Ghulam Nabi Azad, who is the state in-charge of the party.
The protesters were the supporters of former Haryana PCC Chief Ashok Tanwar, who had been ousted recently from the post due to the pressure from the faction led by Mr Hooda.
In the candidate list, the faction led by Mr Hooda has gotten a slight upper hand over its prime rival faction.
That upper hand is what that has triggered the latest factional fight. The factional fight is expected to influence the outcome of the upcoming Assembly Election.
It is unfortunate that the Grand Old Party is still under the clutches of the evil of factional fight. That reflects the incapability of the leadership of the old party. It is high time to formulate a plan to address the crisis.
