KAPIL SIBAL, the eminent lawyer and UPA era Minister,  who along with other senior Congress leaders have pleaded with party’s interim President  Sonia Gandhi for revamping the party’s organizational apparatus, has clarified that he did not hanker after any post. The joint letter sent to her is about the country that matters the most. Sibal made the remarks in a cryptic tweet. “It’s not about a post. It’s about my country which matters most,” he tweeted, without elaborating. After the seven-hour meeting of the party’s top decision-making body on Monday, August 24, the CWC urged Sonia Gandhi to continue as its interim chief till an AICC session can be convened and authorised her to effect necessary organisational changes to deal with the challenges facing the party. CWC  has warned that no one will be permitted to undermine or weaken the party and its leadership. The CWC also resolved that inner-party issues cannot be deliberated through the media or in public fora and all such issues must be raised within the party “in the interest of propriety and discipline”. Some senior Congress leaders, including Sibal and Shashi Tharoor, met at their senior colleague Ghulam Nabi Azad’s house after the CWC debated their letter to Sonia Gandhi seeking urgent organisational reforms. The leaders discussed the resolution passed at the CWC meeting. The demands mentioned in the letter included a “full time” leadership that is active in the field and “visible” in party offices, devolution of powers to state units and revamping the CWC in line with the party constitution.
