Azad raised questions on the election process of Congress President, Poonawalla also made similar allegations in 2017

New Delhi | Before the announcement of the election program of the Congress President, former senior party leader Ghulam Nabi Azad accused the election process and called it a sham. The same word was used by Shahzad Poonawalla in 2017 when he alleged that the entire process was rigged. Azad criticized Rahul Gandhi and his troupe for the party’s dismal performance and termed the entire organizational election process a ‘joke and sham’. His statement has come at a time when the party is going to decide the schedule of internal elections.

Azad, in a letter to Sonia, said the elected office bearers of the AICC, sitting at 24 Akbar Road, were forced to sign the lists prepared by the small group that governs the AICC.

He said, “Nowhere in the country elections have been held at any level at the organization level. The elected lieutenants of AICC have been compelled to sign the lists prepared by the troupe running the AICC sitting at 24 Akbar Road. “

Terming the organizational election process in the party as a hoax, he said that anywhere in the country, elections were not held at any level in the party.

Azad, in his letter to Sonia Gandhi, said that the voter list was not published in any booth, block, district, or any place in the state. AICC leadership is solely responsible for a huge crime.

“Whether the Indian National Congress in the 75th year of India’s independence deserves it is a question that the AICC leadership must ask itself,” he said.

Similarly, current BJP spokesperson and former Maharashtra Congress secretary Shehzad Poonawalla criticized the process of election of the party president in 2017 and alleged that it was “rigged”.

Poonawalla had alleged that it was a “selection process” and an election process was being “disguised”. At that time he intended to contest the election, but Congress had stated that he was not a mandatory PCC representative to contest the election.

He told IANS at the time, “I cannot contest a rigged election. If the system is real, I will fight. It is a rigged election. It is a selection. They are not selected as per the requirements. They have been carefully selected keeping in mind a particular purpose.”
