Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge on Sunday held the first meeting of steering committee constituted by him. The members include veteran leaders Sonia Gandhi, Ashok Gehlot and Bhupesh Baghel.
Soon after Kharge took over as the party president, he constituted a 47-member steering panel to replace the Congress Working Committee (CWC) in October. Most of the members of the CWC were retained.
“I believe that the biggest part of our responsibility towards the party and the country is — organisational accountability from top to bottom. If the Congress organisation is strong, accountable, lives up to the expectations of the people, then only we will be able to win elections and serve the people of the country,” Kharge was quoted as saying by news agency PTI.
“This is neither right nor acceptable. Those who are unable to fulfil their responsibility, they will have to make way for their colleagues,” he further said in the meeting which held ahead of the winter session of Parliament.
