Leakage of publication articles may have been “handiwork” of “saboteurs”: Congress


Left hugely embarrassed by articles in a party mouthpiece that were critical of Jawaharlal Nehru and Sonia Gandhi, Mumbai Congress today said their publication and leak to media could be the “handiwork” of “saboteurs” within the city unit.

“Yes, the party leadership has been briefed about the suspicion that the inclusion and leakage of the articles which cast Nehru and Sonia in poor light may have been the handiwork of saboteurs and disgruntled elements within the Mumbai unit,” Mumbai Regional Congress Committee (MRCC) sources said.

A senior AICC leader said the issue is being treated as closed by the party’s central leadership after it was satisfied with the explanation put forth by the Mumbai unit, the source told PTI.

Asked if any internal inquiry has been initiated to determine how such a faux pas happened, the source said, “The editorial content coordinator has been sacked and the matter has ended there.”
