Congress Proposes Rahul Gandhi As Leader Of Opposition In Lok Sabha

Several prominent leaders within the Congress party are calling for Rahul Gandhi to become the Leader of Opposition (LoP) in the Lok Sabha, hinting at a significant shift in the political landscape.


In a move that signals a potential reshaping of the political landscape, several prominent leaders within the Congress party have voiced their demand for Rahul Gandhi to assume the mantle of Leader of Opposition (LoP) in the Lok Sabha.

Citing his pivotal role and the potential to bolster the party’s stance, these leaders argue that Gandhi’s leadership would significantly fortify the Congress’s position.

The call for Gandhi’s elevation reverberated through the corridors of power as Partap Singh Bajwa, a prominent Congress leader, emphasized to ANI that the sentiment for Gandhi’s ascendancy is widespread.

“The whole country demands that Rahul Gandhi should surface as the main Leader of the Opposition. This position is apt, and he will play a crucial role. The party will also strengthen,” Bajwa asserted.

Amarinder Singh Raja Warring, the Punjab Congress President and an MP representing Ludhiana, echoed Bajwa’s sentiments, highlighting that the ultimate decision rests with the party’s leadership.

“It has been our demand that Rahul Gandhi should come forward and handle everything, but the final decision is of the leadership. Rahul Gandhi has to decide for himself,” Warring remarked, underlining the significance of Gandhi’s potential role.

As the Extended Congress Working Committee convened in Delhi, chaired by Sonia Gandhi and attended by key figures like Mallikarjun Kharge, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, and Rahul Gandhi himself, discussions surrounding Gandhi’s potential elevation took center stage.

Nationwide Demand Emerges For Rahul Gandhi’s Leadership

Telangana Chief Minister Revanth Reddy joined the chorus, emphasizing the nationwide demand for Gandhi’s leadership.

Emphatically, Reddy asserted that Rahul Gandhi is the rightful candidate to lead the Opposition, citing his unwavering advocacy for women’s rights and the plight of the unemployed. Reddy’s endorsement underscores the urgency and necessity for Gandhi’s leadership in addressing these critical issues on the national stage.

Support for Gandhi’s potential role as LoP transcended regional boundaries, with Congress MP Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa, representing Gurdaspur, emphasizing Gandhi’s capability to counter Prime Minister Narendra Modi in parliamentary discourse.

Meanwhile, Randhawa echoed widespread sentiment within the party. He affirmed the nation’s desire for a capable leader who can effectively counter the Prime Minister’s discourse. His words encapsulate the unified aspiration across the country for a formidable figure to represent their interests on the national stage.

In the backdrop of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) consolidating power with its allies, the Congress’s strategic positioning in opposition assumes heightened significance.

While INDIA bloc leaders adopt a cautious stance, Congress leader Salman Khurshid expressed optimism regarding the potential for a beneficial alliance.

Khurshid highlighted the diverse interpretations surrounding the alliance, emphasizing its undeniable nature and foreseeing its potential to benefit the nation’s future. His statement underscores the imperative for constructive governance and collaboration in steering the country towards progress.

With the recent elections positioning the Congress as the second-largest party, key figures like Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi, and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra are anticipated to engage in strategic deliberations regarding the party’s future trajectory.

Meanwhile, as Prime Minister Narendra Modi gears up for his third consecutive term, the political arena braces for potential shifts, prompting the Congress to contemplate its strategy in solidifying its stance as a robust opposition entity.
