New spokesperson for Congress

grapevine abuzz with anand sharma’s name

bric_3THE question facing the Indian National Congress is: Who will be the new spokesperson? Ajay Maken has been appointed president of the Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee, which has led to a vacuum in the All India Congress Committee office. Many prominent names have surfaced. At the top of the list are Manish Tiwari, Anand Sharma, Jairam Ramesh and S Jaipal Reddy along with Kapil Sibal. It is to be seen whether Tiwari will accept the post or not. Ramesh is close to Rahul Gandhi but he does not have a grassroots-level liaison with journalists. Sibal has gone back to the courts for his legal practice and does not have time. Sharma is a good speaker but his tantrums are intolerable. Even the AICC staff is unhappy with him. Jaipal Reddy is a seasoned politician and has vast experience in understanding the newspaper industry and journalists. He is considered among the old guard of the Congress. The grapevine has it that, in all probability, Sharma will be the new spokesperson. If that does happen, the already beleaguered Congress party will have tough days ahead.
