The announcement also comes amid the Congress party’s Chintan Shivir being held in Udaipur.
“The Congress should have held a ‘Chinta Shivir’, and not a ‘Chintan Shivir'”, he said, terming the the event a mere “formality”. Jakhar also said that the top leadership of the Congress hardly know or want to find out ways to save the party.
“Congress should have formed an additional committee to look for reasons as to why it had failed miserably in Uttar Pradesh elections,” he added. He also hit out at Harish Rawat and blamed him for Congress’s loss.
Taking a jibe at Congress president Sonia Gandhi, Jakhar made an appeal, urging her to spare Punjab from the game of politics” as he believes the state has already seen enough “black days”.
