Congress presidential polls rigged to favour Rahul Gandhi: Shehzad Poonawalla

Congress presidential polls rigged to favour Rahul Gandhi: Shehzad Poonawalla”

Just days before Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi's elevation to the top post in the party, his party member Shehzad Poonawalla has criticized this decision as a mere "selection not an election".

Shehzad, on the other hand, told a leading news agency, "I have got info that the delegates who are going to vote for the party president elections are fixed, its rigged". Delegates who are going to vote for this election have not been elected as per the constitutional requirements. And Rahul Gandhi's own promise to rid the party of the scourge of dynasty after he was appointed AICC general secretary and put in the charge of the party's youth and students' wings has proved to be a non-starter, as Poonawalla was at pains to emphasise in his letter. He even wrote a letter to Rahul expressing his anguish over the entire election process while accusing the party of promoting nepotism. Tehseen is married to Rahul's brother-in-law Robert Vadra's sister Monicka.

"I officially end all relationship with @Shehzad_Ind". "I got him up like my son". We needed to defeat the BJP. Any grievances Shehzad had in the party can be brought up in the inter-party forum. "Am I wrong?" he tweeted.

Accusing Shehzad of backstabbing him, he further added that both him and Vadra are stunned with these revelations and that Rahul should focus on Gujarat elections and not on this. "My wife & I disassociate with him", he said. This is unacceptable. I'm very very hurt today. "Please refrain from tweeting/contacting me for the same". He described the party as family-run business and challenged Rahul to come for a televised debate on what the Congress should aim for in the future. "Doing it for publicity", ANI quoted Chavan.

Shehzad Poonawalla - long time rights activist and a relative of the Gandhi family - who claims not to discriminate between Hindus and Muslims, has led from the front.

Poonawala and his brother Tehseen were instrumental in the "Maanav Suraksha Kanoon" campaign against rising intolerance against minorities under the Modi government. In fact, senior Congress leaders like Digvijay Singh and Shashi Tharoor participated in conferences held by the drafting committee and endorsed the bill. "It actually adds weight to the maker of such absolutely silly comments", Congress spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi said. The CWC had approved 19 December as the date of counting.
