Congress Leader Shehzad Poonawalla Expresses Dismay Over Rahul Gandhi’s ‘Selection’ As Party President

2:58 pm 30 Nov, 2017


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 Poonawalla slammed Congress for making Rahul Gandhi the party president without conducting any election. Twitter


Expressing his apathy towards the entire issue, Poonawalla took to his Twitter account and said:

Meanwhile, adding more to the controversy, Shehzad also tagged his brother Tehseen Poonawalla and said, “@tehseenp has no idea about this issue else he would have stopped me too.” Needless to say, this did not go well with the elder brother, who took to his Twitter account to claim severing all political contacts with the former.

It is to be remembered that Tehseen Poonawalla is the brother-in-law of Robert Vadra, who happens to be the son-in-law of Sonia Gandhi.

Meanwhile, Tehseen did not just stop at this and even urged the senior leaders of Indian National Congress (INC) to contest elections against Rahul Gandhi for the post of party’s president.

In a series of tweets, Tehseen explained how he was hurt through his brother’s words and announced to end all his relationship with Shehzad officially:


On the other hand, despite Shehzad’s antipathy towards Rahul Gandhi at his seemingly unfair “selection” to the top position of the party, none of the party members are keen to match their voices with Shehzad. If reports are to be trusted, Rahul Gandhi will be declared as the Congress President on December 11, 2017.
