Municipal elections: discord in Aligarh Congress, mayor candidate sits on dharna against organization, party divided into two factions


Aligarh. The Congress has been badly defeated in the election of the Mayor of the Municipal Corporation. Congress candidate CP Gautam has not even been able to save his deposit. He is blaming senior Congress leader and Rajasthan Congress in-charge Vivek Bansal and other leaders of the organization for the defeat. Holding the office bearers of the organization responsible for defeating the election, Amran has sat on a fast. Due to this, the discord within the party has come out in the open. Seeing the matter coming to the organization, Congress Metropolitan President Salahuddin Vasi hit back by holding a press conference at Milk Bar on Sunday. Along with the councilor and councilor candidates, CP Gautam has been accused of not seeking cooperation. The Gautam faction says that Salahuddin Vasi has been expelled from the party for six years. The state president has constituted a three-member inquiry committee.

Congress mayoral candidate CP Gautam got only 11163 votes. Congress metropolitan president Salauddin Vasi says that CP Gautam did not even ask the organization at the time of nomination. Two metropolitan presidents were appointed in the city 4 days before the elections. Regarding the matter of expulsion from the party, he claimed that he has not been expelled. Till now he has not received any letter. The mayor candidate of Congress held any meeting, never called by phone. He was also seen defending Rajasthan Congress in-charge Vivek Bansal. Salauddin Wasi said that the Congress mayoral candidate did not communicate with any Congress functionary. Neither took cooperation from Vivek Bansal, nor campaigned with the corporators.

The campaign was not done for the councilor

In this matter, District President of Congress Business Cell Gopal Sharma told that Congress Mayor candidate CP Gautam had a misconception that he would win the election with the help of Brahmin votes. He had to fight the election for the entire society. Better than this, Madhukar Sharma fought well in the last election. People sat for the promotional material. But none was found. Even the Congress bag did not reach the polling booths. If this election was fought by taking the councilors along, then the Congress would not have to face a shameful defeat. Congress candidate CP Gautam contested the election only on social media. The mayor candidate did not take any interest in contesting the election. He said that the Congress candidate sat on someone’s lap. Yogesh Dixit, the provincial president of Congress, was told the reason for the defeat.

The state Congress president set up an inquiry on the defeat

inquiry order

State President Brijlal Khabri has constituted an inquiry committee regarding the shameful defeat of the Congress candidate. This decision has been taken in view of the results that came after the apathy of the organization in the municipal elections. In this inquiry committee, former minister Deepak Kumar, Congress general secretary Badruddin Qureshi, Congress committee member Dev Ranjan Nagar will investigate and submit the report to the state president. However, in the point of investigation, there will be investigation on the point of indifference of the Congress organization, change in the declared names of the State Congress Committee at the district level, contribution of PCC and AICC members, contribution of former MLAs and former MPs.
