Congress needs to reinvent itself and stress on finding a new president at the earliest, says Jyotiraditya Scindia
ADMITTING THAT the Congress was going through a crucial time and needs to reinvent itself, senior party leader and former Union minister Jyotiraditya Scindia on Thursday said the oldest national party needs a president who will infuse new energy into the party and has honesty of purpose.
Scindia, who lost the recent election from Guna, said the party would have wanted Rahul Gandhi to continue as president but he is not ready to reconsider his resignation. He said it was already getting late and the party should appoint the new president early.
“There comes a time in an organisation’s history to reinvent itself and the time for the Congress party has come. It’s 2019 and it will have to go to the 125 crore people with a value proposition and win confidence of the people,’’ he said.
