‘I Will Continue To Raise Issues That Will Help Congress’, Says Sanjay Jha After Getting Sacked

Sanjay Jha, the senior spokesperson of the Indian National Congress party, was suspended from the party for ‘anti-party’ activities. Post the announcement, Jha took to Twitter and said that the battle has just begun. He tweeted,

“My loyalty is to the Congress ideology. My fidelity is not to any individual or family. I remain a Gandhi-Nehruvian idealist (a vanishing breed within Congress). I will continue to raise issues that are fundamental to the resurgence of my party. The battle has just begun.”

Sanjay Jha’s sacking came minutes after the party sacked Sachin Pilot from the Deputy Chief Minister post of Rajasthan for starting a coup against the Ashok-Gehlot government in the state. The former spokesperson gave several interviews to many television and digital channels on Tuesday. In one of the interviews, Jha went onto say that the Congress party was Jurrasic. In another interview, he said,


“It isn’t just the usual suspects, I can tell you there are Congress leaders at all levels, including in the Congress Working Committee, who are disillusioned and wondering what’s going on.”

‘No Dearth Of Talent In Congress’

Earlier in the day, Jha had tweeted,

“For five years Sachin Pilot gave his blood, tears, toil and sweat for the Congress party between 2013-18. The Congress came back from a wretched 21 seats to 100. We just gave him a performance bonus. We are so meritocratic. We are so transparent.”

Jha had also said that the party should democratically elect a new president and preferably not from the Gandhi family. In his interview with the Outlook India, he said,

“There is no dearth of outstanding talent within the party. The uncomplicated way forward is elections not just for the post of the president but also within the Congress Working Committee.”
