New Delhi, March 13 : After the exit of Jyotiraditya Scindia from the party, the Congress has reassured its gen-next leaders that they will be given “prominent” positions to contain the exodus from the party.

The Congress has reposed faith in young leaders in the Rajya Sabha polls, the tickets for which were announced on Thursday. Many youth leaders are said to be upset with the party and feel sidelined for not been adjusted in the party apparatus.

Leaders like Milind Deora, Jitin Prasada and Sandeep Dikshit are said to be unhappy over the events. Milind Deora and Sandeep Dikshit has been speaking out on the party affairs.

Congress Chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said that “all the gen-next leaders will be given prominent position in the party, many of them have got and some of them have been nominated to Rajya Sabha.”

Barring legal luminary K.T.S. Tulsi, Digvijaya Singh, and Phool Singh Baraiya most of the tickets have been given to youth leaders. Congress has given ticket to K.C. Venugopal and Neeraj Dangi from Rajasthan, Rajiv Satav from Maharashtra and Shazada Anwar from Jharkhand.

The Congress leader when asked about Scindia he said that “he put self above the party” but millions of Congress workers put the party first. The Congress received a big jolt after Jyortiraditya Scindia resigned, as he was seen as very close to Rahul Gandhi.

On Scindia’s joining the BJP, Rahul Gandhi on Thursday had said: “It’s a battle of ideology… Scindia has kept his ideology in his pocket and joined the RSS. But I know him personally since college days…Scindia has a different ideology… but he thought about his political future… but he may not find comfort in the party he has joined.”

“This is a fight of ideology. On one side it is Congress and on the other, the BJP-RSS,” he said.

Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday had dismissed Scidia’s claim that he was unable to meet him or interim party chief Sonia Gandhi, saying Scindia had access at all times to the Gandhi household.

After joining the BJP, Scindia hit out at the Congress, saying, “The Congress today is not the same as it was in its original form.”

He also accused the Congress of denying the ground reality. “I had a dream when Congress formed the government in Madhya Pradesh in 2018. Eighteen months later, none of the promises have been met, including the ones relating to the farmers,” Scindia said.

India China Ladakh Border

New Delhi, July 7 : The Congress has questioned the government on reports of withdrawal of Indian troops from Galwan valley in Ladakh.

Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said that the country wants response on it.

Surjewala said in a tweet “Respected Prime Minister, do you remember your words and do your words mean something and will you tell that why are our forces leaving our motherland?”

The Congress leader was commenting on reports of Indian and Chinese troops have retreated two kilometres each along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in the Galwan Valley, where 20 Indian and unknown number of Chinese soldiers were killed in a violent face-off last month.

The Congress questioned the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s statement during the all-party meting held in June where the party said that the Prime Minister had claimed no one had occupied Indian territory and so it demanded Modi should apologise for that statement.

The reports say that disengagement between Indian and People’s Liberation Army (PLA) troops happened as per the agreed terms in the Corps Commanders’ meeting.

With the retreat from both sides, a four kilometre no-man zone has been created. “Four kilometres in the highly mountainous terrain like Galwan valley, deprives both sides to see each other’s installations and reinforcements,” sources said.

The two sides have also agreed, sources said, not to do any aerial surveillance of the retreated area, to rebuild trust which was badly damaged due to the June 15 clash.
