Mr. MM Singh Cheema, Permanent Invitee Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee, has written to Sonia Gandhi, Chairperson United Progressive Alliance (UPA), for reorganization of AICC on priority basis in view of the large scale upheaval in the democratic system created by one man army and two man party of Narendra Modi and Amit Shah, turning it into a crucial phase in the democracy.

Mr. Cheema said that the day is not far when the world’s largest democracy will be in a situation where the democratic rights will be taken away by vested interests and the democracy restored in India after a long haul battle of freedom fighters will go to waste.

Mr. Cheema requested Mrs. Gandhi to immediately take over the party reins till a regular President is appointed. Though Rahul Gandhi has expressed his desire to resign from the party President-ship but his resignation is still pending with the Congress Working Committee. He said every Congressmen appreciate the initiative taken by Rahul Gandhi to own the moral responsibility for defeat in May 2019 Lok Sabha elections which was a right step at that very moment.

Mr. Cheema further stated that in view of the large scale defections done by BJP in various states, a dangerous trend has emerged which needs to be tackled very aggressively. It is high time for Sonia Gandhi to take over as Congress President.
