That party is using communication and branding strategy to the zenith and on the other hand the Congress needs to improve a lot on that front LIZ MATHEW: Many of you have given suggestions to the leadership publicly and at internal meetings But there seems to be no reaction from the leadership For example in Tamil Nadu despite the Congress being out of power for many years it still has 5-6 per cent vote Even when you were in power the party failed to expand that base Do you think there needs to be a change from the top a leadership change if only on a trial basis Let’s not forget that this is the same Congress that came to power in 2004 and 2009 So a number of things have worked for us After 10 years you have anti-incumbency I am not making an excuse Obviously we failed Top-down bottom-up we all recognise it The key challenge here is to carve a path forward It’s important to identify leadership and we’ve done that in a couple of states like in Rajasthan with Sachin (Pilot) I believe that’s the path forward because unless you have strong states you will not have a strong Centre Politics has changed in the last 15 years since I joined it Earlier the Centre and states would be very different Today you got to have a strong state leadership We are doing that slowly but steadily You can’t be hasty and make decisions on impulse You can’t have a knee-jerk reaction ‘Ok we got a drubbing here and therefore take the decision’ UNNI RAJEN SHANKER: One of your colleagues talked about the cameo appearance of the leadership Is it still an issue As far as appearances are concerned whether it’s Rahulji or Soniaji they have put to use everything at their command in terms of touring — being there for both national and state elections It’s important for us also to galvanise at our level It’s easy to look downwards or upwards and blame the system We too should introspect and see where we have not performed and correct our positioning AMBREEN KHAN: To what extent do you think that Priyanka Gandhi should lead the Congress The Congress democratically elects its leadership — the president and the vice-president Our leadership today is Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi and we will work according to their policies AMBREEN KHAN: Is Priyanka a ray of hope for the Congress She has tremendous capability Whether she would like to get into politics or not is her personal decision It’s unfair of us to make that call for her Tekchand Sonawane: Your partners like the DMK and NCP were involved in scams Did the Congress suffer a setback in the Lok Sabha and Assembly elections because of the damage caused by its alliances An alliance is formed on the basis of a common minimum programme There are gives and takes there have been some shortcomings but those were of the UPA as a whole To blame allies is wrong It may have been one of the reasons but it definitely was not the only reason SHYAMLAL YADAV: What is your view of the RSS’s role in the present government It’s not different from what it’s always been It’s always been like that This is a party and a leader that projected something else And today you’ve seen the permeation of the command and control system We have seen it permeate into the organisation of the BJP as office-bearers are coming in We’ve always said that it will be the case and it’s slowly turning out to be so These are very early days 175 days but we’re suddenly seeing the influence of that right People talk about Swachh Bharat movement We started Nirmal Bharat you reduced its budgetary allocation and replaced it with a communication plank There’s no action only statements All schemes being carried out today are of the UPA All projects — from train lines to power plants — being inaugurated today were initiated by the UPA Look at the composition of the Cabinet You talked about presenting a model clean government Are you walking the talk The Congress is already asking these questions People of the country will start asking these questions soon SHYAMLAL YADAV: Should government employees be allowed to attend RSS shakhas Obviously not Government employees are supposed to be neutral You have a capable person around but you will not keep him because he was aligned with someone Your civil servant works for the country not a party or an individual You got to keep his/her respect and dignity SHYAMLAL YADAV: Is the Congress prepared to deal with the RSS We have always been prepared to deal with them It’s not a new phenomenon It’s been around since the time of Independence or even before And we’ve always combated them because we believe in a secular modern India RAGHVENDRA RAO: During the first Parliament session of the new government there was an impression the Congress was struggling to make its presence felt particularly in the Lok Sabha With the kind of numbers you have what is going to be your strategy to play the role of an effective Opposition I don’t buy that conclusion completely We have raised a number of important issues Our numbers have been reduced but our voices have not been drowned We have been given the responsibility of fighting for the rights of the people of this country and we will deliver on that in Parliament irrespective of our numbers MANOJ C G: As the chief Congress whip in the Lok Sabha how do you plan to counter the land acquisition Bill if the government brings it in a changed format If something is in the interest of the country we will support it But if there are changes that will affect 60-65 per cent of the work force of this country which is in agriculture we will certainly oppose it But it is too early to pass a judgment Let’s wait for the draft to come out MANOJ C G: Are you in touch with other opposition parties for larger collaboration on such issues Yes both in the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha And we will work together on areas of mutual interest MONOJIT MAJUMDAR: Why has the Congress not countered the BJP in Madhya Pradesh where the latter has been in power for so long That’s something I dealt with in the Assembly elections in November last year And I said the first person who should be held responsible is me It’s important to start building a campaign almost two years before any state election and we were not able to do that MANEESH CHHIBBER: As leader of the Congress in Madhya Pradesh you accept your responsibility for the Assembly defeat But Rahul Gandhi has not accepted responsibility for the 2014 Lok Sabha polls defeat Why is everybody in the party trying to shield him That’s not so He was clear after the Uttar Pradesh elections he came out and addressed all of you He was very clear even after the Lok Sabha elections when he came and spoke with all of you It takes courage to come out in front of the country and say ‘Yes we failed and we need to go back to the drawing board’ And he very candidly did that But we feel that we are all accountable as a party and we need to look within and correct ourselves LIZ MATHEW: The BJP instead of joining hands with political parties is taking personalities who have clout in a particular community or in a state And it keeps saying many Congress persons will join its fold How concerned are you I’m not too concerned with the rise or fall of the BJP I’m more interested in the need to build the party from within It is very important to keep the family together — not only leaders but also grassroots workers I think it’s also important to create that distinction between those committed to the party and those who move away at an opportunistic time AMBREEN KHAN: What is the equation of the party’s ‘youth brigade’ with Rahul Gandhi Why are we going back to this constant construct of Rahulji with the youth brigade Mr Gandhi has a connect with every worker of this political party There are capable leaders across the spectrum You may come from any age bracket and may still have many productive things to contribute You keep talking about youth brigade I’m 45 I have a son who is 19 years old RAKESH SINHA: Has the row over Robert Vadra hurt the party I would not like to comment on something to do with the life of a private individual COOMI KAPOOR: As chief whip of the party do you think it’s suitable for office-bearers to move into the well of the House to protest Why not I’m not in favour of indiscipline but if your voice is not being heard from the seat on an important issue then what option do you have That’s a part of parliamentary practice MANEESH CHHIBBER: In state after state going to polls like in J&K Congress leaders are quitting the party in droves Is that a worrying sign for the party I wouldn’t want to say in droves but if any member leaves it’s not something? there needs to be visibility and a roadmap.whom he had recently married. around 150, 2017 4:07
