Give up groupism, Rahul tells Jharkhand Cong leaders

September 26, 2012 17:54 IST

Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday pulled up senior Congress leaders in Jharkhand for factional politics which was harming the party interests in the state.

"Rahulji told us that there is groupism in the state Congress party. Had it not been there the Congress strength in Jharkhand assembly would have been 25 to 30 MLAs," an AICC member, who attended a party meeting chaired by Gandhi, said, quoting him.

Union Tourism Minister Subodh Kant Sahay and Leader of the Opposition Rajendra Prasad Singh were among others present.

Earlier addressing Youth Congress leaders, Gandhi called upon them to work earnestly so that the people threw out the present government and vote the Congress to power in Jharkhand.

Gandhi called upon the youth Congress leaders to be fearless and overcome all difficulties in strengthening the party.
