Rivals, rebels will closely watch how Congress fares

NEW DELHI: How Congress fares electorally in the five election-going states will also test the party’s organisational stability in the coming months with the polls in Punjab, Goa, Uttarakhand, Manipur and Uttar Pradesh seen as a big test ahead of more electoral battles.
With opposition partners, which would like to see Congress elbowed out of the ‘opposition leader’ race, dissidents and seniors within will also be watching the results. The Punjab organisational crisis has indeed seen more than a few contradictions rise to the fore. And results will determine whether the disgruntled voices grow louder, or are hemmed in.
So far, Congress has expressed confidence it will retain power in Punjab, and put up a strong fight in the remaining states to ensure BJP is ousted from office. If the results are not favourable, the current G23 may swell in numbers and restive satraps like Bhupender Hooda in Haryana and elsewhere may seek to flex some muscle. Or it could even fuel exits.
Most crucially, the impact of results will be felt in the party’s organisational polls scheduled to be held between August and September. A solid performance will strengthen the chorus for Rahul Gandhi to take charge of the party’s reins, but a dull show could deepen the already prolonged reluctance to assume control.
