Congress' Barkha Singh says Rahul Gandhi unfit to lead party

All India Mahila Congress President Shobha Oza said she had not received any resignation letter from Singh and sacked her from the post. Why does Rahul Gandhi shy away from meeting party leaders who ask him questions? Their plea to Mr Gandhi, she said, "fell on deaf ears".

Describing herself as a loyal soldier of the Congress, Barkha Singh said she would continue to remain that. Mr Biswa had squarely blamed Mr Gandhi for his quitting the Congress, alleging that the party vice president paid more attention to his pet than him when he went to meet him in Delhi. "There is no one in the party who can take actions", she said. Barkha said that when she along with other women party members approached Rahul to air their grievances, they were told he had a packed schedule and could not attend to them. When we reached his residence, we were told that he is busy.

The Congress worker added that on the same day, Rahul Gandhi was seen partying at Shangri-La Hotel. "The one pertinent question we need to ask is why is Rahul Gandhi hiding? Several senior leaders have quit the party because of this very reason - his reluctance over addressing issues that exist within the organisation", she said.

Barkha has alleged that party vice-president Rahul Gandhi does not listen to anyone and he has failed to run the organization in right direction. Singh claimed that senior leaders of the party are of the opinion that Rahul Gandhi is "unfit" to lead the Congress.

She also had a complaint common to several Congress leaders who have rebelled in recent days - Mr Gandhi's disinterest in their problems. It is because of this attitude of Rahul Gandhi and Ajay Maken that as many as 5 District Presidents and 75 Block Presidents resigned from the organisation. Earlier, former Delhi Congress chief Arvind Singh Lovely joined the BJP.
