Dismissing strategies that there could possibly be extra leaders who might give up the get together after Mr Scindia, the Congress’s chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala stated individuals typically have to decide on ideology over the attract of a put up.
“I do not think that there is any brain drain happening in the Congress party as Rahul Gandhi himself answered vis-a- vis Jyotiraditya Scindia yesterday,” Mr Surjewala stated at a celebration press convention.
“Even if a person leaves the Congress party, we are all deeply hurt. However, Jyotiraditya ji or any other person needs to think whether their core ideology is far more important than the temporary allure of a post and a position in power,” he stated.
Asked a few attainable “brain drain” within the get together Mr Surjewala stated, “The younger lot or the younger leaders whom you are referring to have more than adequate place in the party. They will be attended to and given responsible positions. Some of them have already been given so during Rajya Sabha elections.”
