‘Desist from Propaganda’: Congress Denies Demanding Front Row Seat for Rahul Gandhi in Lok Sabha
The Congress on Tuesday attested that it has not requested an unparalleled view for Rahul Gandhi in the Lok Sabha and rejected media reports expressing the opposite as “promulgation”.
The explanation came after media reports guaranteed the legislature hosts disregarded the Congress gathering’s interest for an extra fantastic view in the Lok Sabha. As indicated by the report, the Congress was given just two seats in the main line for gathering pioneers Sonia Gandhi and Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury.
“We have proposed seat no. 466 for Rahul Gandhi ji. Desist from false propaganda,” Congress leader in the Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury clarified.
The number of front row seats a party gets in the Lok Sabha depends on its strength in the House.
Rahul Gandhi recently announced his resignation, assuming responsibility for the Congress’ defeat in the 2019 general election, wherein it only won 52 of the 543 Lok Sabha seats. No announcement of the former party president’s successor has been made.
This comes after the Congress, in much turmoil in Karnataka, protested in the Parliament on Tuesday, in which Gandhi was also seen raising slogans. Several legislators of the Congress-JD(S) coalition have resigned, leading to a massive political crisis in the state.
The former Congress president is set to visit Amethi, the Congress bastion he lost to BJP’s Smriti Irani, for the first since the election on Wednesday.
