Earlier, Congress leaders Sandeep Dikshit and Shashi Tharoor have made calls for fresh elections for the party’s top post to revive the party after Delhi Assembly Elections 2020.
Talking about different voices over the leadership in the party, Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said the Congress working committee has decided on the Congress president.
“If anyone has any doubts about this, he should kindly read the resolution of the CWC before giving any statements in public and they will gain some knowledge,” he said.
Talking about Congress leaders Sandeep Dikshit’s statement, Surjewala said that if leaders like him work hard in their own parliamentary constituencies the Congress will surely emerge victorious.
“I have not seen Dikshit”s remarks, but one must realise when the leaders contest themselves they should understand why they lost elections and how much votes they got,” he said.
