He said that those hoping for a revival of Congress based on his Lahimpur The kheri’s intervention turns into great disappointment.
His remarks come at a time when the aggressive political stance of the Gandhi brothers and sisters over the shocking incident in Lahimpur-Kheri enthralled part of the party leadership who believed that Gandhi was finally going to act together. These leaders believe the party needed to be aggressive, especially with organizations like the Trinamool Congress working overtime to showcase their national ambitions.

Interestingly, Kishore was in talks with the Gandhi to formally join the Congress. Gandhi was also kind. Sources close to Rahul actually said that he advised him to join the party, rather than hoping to play a role in the elections and campaigning for the party.

Unfortunately, there are no quick fixes to the deep-seated problems and structural weakness of the GOP, ”he tweeted.
Public comments signal that negotiations between Kishore and Gandhi about the latter’s formal entry into Congress may not be progressing the way Kishore wanted. “On some level, his remarks also show disappointment. And perhaps that is also despair, ”said a senior executive when asked how he saw these remarks.
“His emphasis on ‘deep-seated problems and structural weakness’ is interesting as he is said to have advised Gandhi on the same issues. Perhaps things are not going as he expected, ”he said.
Another leader, who was always critical of Kishore, stated that he was blinking for the Trinamool Congress.
“He works at different levels. Our leaders are perhaps naive when they come into contact with him. Gandhi did their best to turn the Lakhimpur incident into a powerful weapon against Bjp… And he tries to defuse it. So who is he hitting for? – said the leader.
The leader, who is considered close to Rahul, took his remarks lightly, stating that “every word of his should not be analyzed and analyzed.”
