After G-23 meeting, Rahul Gandhi meets Congress veteran Bhupinder Singh Hooda

Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi met Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Thursday, a day after the important meeting of G-23 leaders, and is said to have discussed restructuring the party and the way forward following its loss in five Assembly elections. G-23 is a group of opposing Congress officials that have called for a restructuring of the organisation. Following the meeting, Hooda, the former Haryana chief minister, paid a visit to Ghulam Nabi Azad, a member of the G-23, at his home. According to reports, Hooda and Azad addressed tangible proposals to strengthen the Congress and assure collaborative leadership and decision-making, as desired by the grouping, which convened on Wednesday and signed a united statement. Hooda was joined in the deliberations at Azad’s apartment by Deputy Leader of the Congress in the Rajya Sabha and another G 23 leader Anand Sharma, according to sources. “The only way ahead for the Congress is to adopt a paradigm of inclusive and collective leadership and decision-making at all levels,” the grouping declared yesterday. In light of the G23 statement and Azad’s telephonic discussion, Rahul Gandhi’s meeting with Hooda is significant. In the backdrop of the G23 statement and the telephonic conversation Azad had with Sonia Gandhi on Wednesday to relay the intentions of the meeting at his residence, Rahul Gandhi’s meeting with Hooda is crucial. Azad is expected to see Sonia Gandhi with recommendations soon, according to sources, and conversations on course correction inside the party are beginning.
