Consultant or no…’: Digvijaya Singh after Cong’s Prashant Kishor deal fails


Digvijaya Singh said ultimately the Congress has to move and put its house in order commenting on Prashant Kishor’s refusal to join the party. 

Senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh on Wednesday said it is the party which has to move ultimately and put its house in order, be there a consultant or not. “It is ultimately Congress which has to move and put its House in Order. Consultant or no Consultant!! I have a strong hunch the “Chintin Shivir” would lead to bring in a New Congress which is the Need of the Hour,” the senior Congress leader said, a day after both Prashant Kishor and the Congress announced that their deliberations of the last few days failed and Prashant Kishor won’t be joining the party.

Replying to a political commentator’s tweet on what former Madhya Pradesh chief minister Digvijaya Singh already said on Prashant Kishor’s induction into the party – at the time when there was a possibility — Digvijaya reiterated that irrespective of the presence of a consultant in the party, the party itself has to move and bring the changes internally.

Prashant Kishor on Tuesday announced that he had declined the offer to join the party’s empowered action group (EAG) and feels that the party needs leadership and collective will to fix deep-rooted structural problem more than him. The Congress too informed the same appreciating Prashant Kishor’s efforts and suggestions.
