Panaji: Ahead of Congress Working Committee meeting, senior party leaders from Goa have stood by Sonia Gandhi to continue heading the party in the times of COVID-19 crisis.
Goa Pradesh Congress Committee President Girish Chodankar and Leader of Opposition Digambar Kamat issued two different statements on Sunday in support of Sonia Gandhi.
Chodankar said that the demand for restructuring is “absurd” at the time when Gandhis are fighting to help people facing the wrath of Coronavirus on one side and on the other hand fighting to save democracy of our great nation.
He tweeted “@INCIndia is the First Family of India and the movement that provides strength and sanity to the Nation. After @RahulGandhi resignation it was SmtSoniaGandhi who took charge despite all odds. Making internal communication public of our family is unethical, unfair and destructive.”
“especially when @INCIndia is the only party keeping a selfish Govt in check. It’s only @RahulGandhi who is fighting against @narendramodi and his reign of greed, terror and injustice. We should stand unitedly with our President and support #RahulGandhi who is exposing misdeeds,” he added.
“of this Govt becoming common man’s voice. At a time when Gandhis are fighting to help people facing the wrath of the Coronavirus on one hand and on the other hand fighting to save the Democracy of Our great Nation. A demand for a restructure at this point is absurd,” he tweeted.
Echoing similar sentiments, Kamat said the Nation looks at Indian National Congress as peoples voice in critical times of Covid Pandemic.
“Sonia Gandhi has led the Congress Party keeping everyone united during crisis. Lets us discuss how to strengthen her and Rahul Gandhi’s hands to defeat the divisive BJP,” he said.
The LoP said that the people have high hopes from the Congress Party all across the Country. The efforts of Rahul Gandhi of exposing the short comings of BJP Government needs to be strengthened in the interest of the Country.
“I am personally indebted to Smt. Sonia Gandhiji who gave me an opportunity to be the Chief Minister of Goa and will always remain obliged to her for her wholehearted support during my entire tenure and even now while discharing my duties as Leader of Opposition,” he added.
Kamat has appealed each and every Congress worker is Goa to solidly stand by the leadership of Gandhis.
