Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi may take a shocking decision soon. Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury is being removed from the post of Leader of Congress in Lok Sabha. It is believed that the Congress will put up a barricade against the BJP government in the house along with Trinamool by removing Adhir Ranjan before the monsoon session.
However, it is also being said in the reports that Rahul Gandhi is not a contender for this post. During the Bengal elections, Congress MP from Baharampur, Adhir Ranjan took part in the campaign and he is also the Chief of Bengal Congress.
Leaders were criticized after Bengal elections
Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury was the biggest face among those who criticized the 23 leaders who wrote letters to the Congress leadership for change. Congress did not get a single seat in the Bengal assembly elections. After this, Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury had said that the party can no longer tolerate being surrounded by leaders in the cocoon of social media. Now they have to hit the road. As Soniaji said, the victims of Kovid will have to be helped immensely.
Reasons for the removal of Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury
Who will take the place if Adhir Ranjan leaves?
The biggest question is that if Sonia Gandhi removes Adhir Ranjan as the leader of the party in the lower house, who will replace him? If sources are to be believed, the names of Thiruvananthapuram MP Shashi Tharoor, Anandpur Sahib MP Manish Tewari are the frontrunners for this post. However, both these leaders were also among the 23 who wrote letters to the Congress leadership. It is also not clear whether Rahul Gandhi wants to lead the 52-member Congress team in Parliament or not. However, it is being said that he is not among the contenders for this post.
