Congress expert Ghulam Nabi Azad, one of the most noticeable of the “dissent” letter writers attended have actually wondered about the leadership of the Gandhis, has lost his blog post in a significant shakeup seen to promote Rahul Gandhi’s squad. Ghulam Nabi Azad has actually been dropped as a general secretary though he stays a part of the Congress Working Board, the celebration’s top decision-making panel.
Motilal Vora, Ambika Soni and also Mallikarjun Kharge have also been removed as basic assistants of the All India Congress Board (AICC) in the Friday shuffle by Congress head of state Sonia Gandhi. The Congress Working Committee (CWC) has been reconstituted as well as P Chidambaram, Tariq Anwar, Randeep Surjewala, and Jitendra Singh have actually been called as its normal members.

This special board is the only indication of any kind of effect of the dissent letter, which divided the party down the center and left the letter writers isolated in the celebration.
