NEW DELHI: With Congress’s internal reform underway under the leadership of party president Sonia Gandhi, G-23 had “no role and had become irrelevant”, Congress leader M Veerappa Moily said on Sunday.
The former Union minister, who was among the signatories of a letter to Sonia that sought an organisational overhaul, said anyone who persisted with “institutionalising” the G-23 after the reform process had kicked off would only be doing it for “vested interests”.
“Some of us put our signatures only for reform of the party from within and to rebuild the party, not to destroy it… Some of our leaders misused the G-23…. If they (some leaders) persist (with G-23) that means there is a vested interest for a few of them to work against the Congress party, which we don’t subscribe to and rather oppose it,” Moily told PTI.
He added that anyone who continued to use G-23 was doing a “great disservice” to the Indian National Congress and its legacy, and that such actions would help Congress’s rivals. “She (Sonia Gandhi) is active and taking decisions, such decisions are needed,” Moily said to the news agency.
The former minister voiced support for poll strategist Prashant Kishor’s induction into Congress and said those opposing his entry were “anti-reform”.
Moily also described Congress as the “fulcrum of the strength of the politics of this country”, saying that while the party lost elections a few times, it would not lose forever. Reacting to NCP chief Sharad Pawar’s statement that Congress was like a ‘zamindar’, Moily said the NCP chief had himself said Congress was the only party in power in multiple states that could take on BJP.
