New Delhi. Senior Congress leader M Veerappa Moily on Sunday said that some leaders “misused” the G-23 (group of 23 dissenting leaders) and said that if anyone still supports the continuation of the group, it will be Will be for ‘vested interest’ as reforms in the party have already started under Sonia Gandhi’s leadership. The former Union minister also strongly supported the inclusion of election strategist Prashant Kishor in the Congress and said those opposing his induction into the party are “anti-reform”.
In an interview with PTI-Bhasha, Moily opposed the continuation of the G-23 group. Moily was among 23 leaders who wrote to Sonia Gandhi last year demanding organizational change. “Some of us had signed this letter only to reform and rebuild the party, not to destroy it,” he said.

Without naming anyone, the senior Congress leader said, “Some people misused the G-23. As soon as Sonia thought of reforms within the party and that too from the grassroots level, since then we have rejected the concept of G-23. He said with the introduction of reforms under the leadership of party president Sonia Gandhi, the G-23 “no longer played a role and became irrelevant”.

“If they (some leaders) stick to it (with G-23), it means that some of them have a vested interest of working against the Congress party, which we don’t think and in fact it means,” Moily said. oppose.’ He said that if anyone re-uses the G-23, he is doing a great deal of damage to the Indian National Congress and its legacy. Also said that such actions will help the enemies of Congress.

Moily’s remarks assume significance as many G-23 leaders have either distanced themselves from it or have gone silent since the letter he wrote last year. Jitin Prasada has joined the BJP from that group of 23 leaders who wrote letters to Sonia Gandhi. Some leaders of G-23 were recently seen together at social functions at Kapil Sibal’s residence and reportedly discussed party issues. In a function, Sibal had also invited several opposition leaders to his residence.

Asked about speculation that Kishor would join the Congress, Moily said it would be appropriate that he join the Congress and implement reforms from within. Moily urged the people of the party opposing Kishor’s joining the Congress not to do so. He said that it is necessary for such a country and the Congress that the party should be reformed and said that the intention of Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi is also the same.

According to sources, Congress President Sonia Gandhi will take a final call on Kishor’s inclusion and has discussed the issue with several senior leaders. Asked whether he thinks the inclusion of Kishor will be beneficial for the party, Moily said the election strategist has proved that he has been successful in strategizing. “Instead of working from outside, it would be very beneficial if he joins the party,” he said.
Moily said, “There should be a strong will power to join hands with Sonia ji to ensure that the organization of the party is strong within a few months. That’s what I proposed that Prashant Kishor can revive the Congress party in the way it is needed.” He also said that Congress is the mainstay of the politics of this country.
Asked about Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar’s remarks describing Congress as poor landlords, he said, “We may lose sometimes, but it cannot be said that we will lose forever.” Will go For example, in 1977 we lost and in 1980 with all the allegations against her (Indira Gandhi), eventually people found that they wanted Congress and Indira ji to come back, this is Congress history.
Moily also said that Pawar himself has admitted that the Congress was the only party in power in many states that could take on the BJP. Moily said, ‘Congress is the basis of strength of this country’s politics.’ When asked whether the Congress would be the basis of an opposition alliance to take on the BJP in the 2024 elections, he replied in the affirmative.
“After all, the government cannot work for the interests of a group of people, certain castes or certain religions, it cannot be done,” Moily said. Just because people are silent doesn’t mean they can’t make a political revolution, they can do it but only under the leadership of Congress. He alleged that it should be remembered that the integrity of the Constitution of India is in danger under the rule of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA).
Responding to allegations that Congress is only for the benefit of one family, Moily said that Sonia Gandhi made sacrifices for the country and never craved for posts. Asked about the voices within the party demanding that Rahul Gandhi be re-appointed as party president, he said the Wayanad MP is a great option to lead the party, but added that the focus is on restructuring and reforming the party. Giving is important.
Moily was recently appointed as the convener of the party’s seven-member committee to study matters related to the caste census. He said that it is not about polarization on the basis of caste, but a demand for equality and nothing that should perpetuate the caste system.
