    Senior Congress leader and former Union minister G Venkataswamy on Tuesday caused ripples in the party by asking Sonia Gandhi to step down as Congress president. Taking umbrage for sending Union Defence Minister A K Antony to invite Praja Rajyam Party president Chiranjeevi for a meeting with her, Venkataswamy said that under Sonia’s leadership the Congress will not win the next elections in the country.


    “Sonia should go. The leadership should be taken over by senior and dedicated Congressmen. The party is in disarray at present. Allegations of corruption and inefficiency are growing every day. The situation in the party has come to such a stage that the Congress president has to send a senior minister to invite Chiranjeevi. Does he have a magic potion to solve the party problems in Andhra Pradesh?â€￾ Venkataswamy asked.



    Congress leaders immediately moved in to contain the damage, calling him senile and frustrated. Rajya Sabha MP K Keshava Rao said Venkataswamy may be frustrated as he was feeling ignored in the party.

    Venkataswamy, a former Congress Working Committee member, may not be taken in the yet to reconstituted CWC. His son G Vivekananda is MP from Peddapalle.

    If one looks at it dispassionately, isn't it right to ask for some accountability? UPA-II is not doing well, it has lost public confidence, in spite of coming to power with such a huge majority, and without the left parties to put it down. The party leadership must be held accountable, so why so much asslicking?

    My biggest concern is what will happen to our national goal for 2020 if this state of affairs continue.

    India's constitutional setup is such that the prime minister, who happens to be the supreme executive leader, must be a strong person with impeccable integrity. If he, inspite of being himself clean, sober, is just a puppet, then the governance machinery down the line will eventually collapse.

    Regional politics got more to do with his comments than anything else. Nothing wrong with him expressing his personal opinion though.
