Barkha Singh Shukla was chief of the Delhi Mahila Congress

Rahul Gandhi Unfit To Lead' Says Delhi Congress Leader Barkha Shukla Singh

Barkha Shukla Singh, chief of Delhi Women's Congress cell resigned from her post on Thursday, according to media reports.

As he joined the BJP, Mr Lovely too had expressed deep dissatisfaction with the Congress leadership, including Mr Gandhi and the way the party is being run. Their plea to Mr Gandhi, she said, "fell on deaf ears".

Amid continuing exodus of party leaders and criticism for the Congress from within its own fold ahead of the MCD polls, the party was dealt another body blow today. Sonia Gandhi should make him undergo treatment.

"In the current organisation where I am myself unsafe then how will I empower women in that organisation and that is why I hereby resign from the post of President of Delhi Mahila Congress", Shukla said in her resignation letter. "There is no one in the party who can take actions", she said. More so on the first day of Navratra when scores of office bearers of Delhi Mahila Congress asssembeled outside Mr Rahul Gandhi's residence to apprise him of the wrong doings of the Delhi Congress and Mahila Congress leadership, we were told by Rahul Gandhis office that they didnt care about any Navratra and we were asked to leave.


"The same night, he was partying at Shangri La hotel", Barkha, who flashed a photo of Rahul partying inside a hotel, said. Slamming the party's vice president Rahul Gandhi, Shukla said that under their leadership, women have been used only to gather votes and nothing has been done for their empowerment. "Several senior leaders have quit the party because of this very reason - his reluctance over addressing issues that exist within the organisation", she said.

"The party will go down to a new low under his leadership", she said, adding that "in front of the camera, they call for his anointing, but behind the camera they abuse him".

Of late, former Congress leader Arvinder Singh Lovely joined the BJP and had lashed out at the leadership of his former party, which he said has "died " under them.

"No one listens", was the plaint of Delhi Congress veteran AK Walia, who had threatened to resign last month over the selection of candidates for the civic polls.
