【Mumbai】Just when the Congress launched the Speak Up India campaign, urging citizens to take to social media platforms and point out the Centre's COVID-19 management failures, one of the national spokespersons of the party started the Speak Up Congress campaign.
Mumbai-based former banker-turned-spokesperson Sanjay Jha, while recovering from COVID-19 himself, offered a prognosis for his party. In an opinion piece in a leading newspaper, Mr. Jha predicted the Congress' political obsolescence because of its "extraordinary lassitude and lackadaisical attitude".
The Gandhi family's weak decision-making power has also allowed things to drift away in several States that are witnessing a leadership tussle. The Congress leadership also seems unable to decide on who should lead the States such as Assam and Bengal that go to polls next year or, for that matter, its leader in the Lok Sabha. As the central leadership of the Congress and the Gandhi family's hold weakens over the party, regional leaders who still have some popular mass base may continue to dictate terms.
Regional satraps may hold sway in Congress
