Shehzad Poonawalla slams Rahul Gandhi, claims Congress prez election is rigged


Mumbai, Nov 30 (DHNS): Maharashtra Congress Secretary Shehzad Poonawalla has come out against his own party and Rahul Gandhi in particular, saying that the party has rigged the party president elections in Gandhi's favour and said that it's not an election, but a selection.

He dared Rahul Gandhi to quit his post as Congress Vice-President and fight the elections fairly as opposed to using his surname as leverage and said that he would contest in the elections if they are conducted in a fair manner. He also challenged him to a live debate on TV, saying "Will he be ready for a televised debate where we both as contestants can have a debate on what is our vision for the Congress party? We can be judged on merit, not on the surname."

Shehzad Poonawalla is the younger brother of Tehseen Poonawalla, also a Congress worker. In response to Shehzad's statements, Tehseen has publicly slammed his brother, saying that he is disassociating with him.

    All partys high command decision is final and other members can express thier views during the meetings or write to higher authority or high command. This applies to everybody in all walks of life. Why only blaming Congress???

    So one question:- suppose there multiple candidates for president then who are the voters? All registered congress karyakarta or registered members?

    Shehzad bhai, Control your anger and disagreement for the President post of Congress. You journey has just started so wait for 10 years atleast to learn the tradition of Congress party. Many from Maharashtra failed for the same reason and then formed their own party which you are aware. You too do the same or join some other party. My suggestion is first prove your identity in politics nationwise and then question to Rahul so you may get some minor support. Politics you may require identity and most of the Asian countries ruled in this real life history if you observe. Rahul did wait since many years for the Presidentship even though he had more support than you. I do agree many don't like him but in reality he has more support than you and me.

    This is all farce and some one will oppose RG to show public that Rahul Gandhi has been elected with massive votes.Congress leader Shehzad Poonawalla will contest election to show there is internal Democracy in Congress Party.However it is advised him not to contest and save time and money which is more important to Congress Party.If there is no Sonia Gandhi in Rahul Gandhi in Congress Party then it is complete zero as both are acting in congress Party as cementing force without which it can not survive

    Right from the time of Nehru - there was no democracy or process in Congress party. Why did this guy wake up now ?? If you are in congress it implies that you are a slave to the Gandhis and should lick their feet. Its expected and thats how all the others are serving the corrupt party. Not sure what this guy''s sudden wake up call is all about. He should talk to Manmohan once to understand how to be a perfect congress worker.

    Mr. Anirudh P.,
    How do you know I am a Congress supporter? You wouldn’t have said this had you read or remembered my earlier comments. When Congress & BSP alleged elections were rigged by EVMs in UP, I then said why they didn’t they question about EVMs in Bihar, Delhi and Punjab. Congress wanted elections through ballot paper. What happened to the ballot now?

    Good to know that still there is ONE person in congress who has self respect and showed some spine to speak against dynasty.

    Even though I hated this guy, I appreciate and congratulate him for putting Nation forward than anything else.

    Funny part is his own brother chose to remain as chela. What a disgusting life.

    I am citizen of India and i have every right to say no to by ruled by a failed, dumb person just because he has got some surname. In democracy, merit/hard work should be given preference rater than surname.

    Moreover, don't insult all the people, only fools would like to vote for dynastic rule and become their slave.

    I would like to call myself a Bhakth of India than a salve to a dynasty.

    Desi Jawan,
    Most politicians of all political partys introduce their family members for party posts, Corporator, MLA, MLC, MP or other party or corporation posts! Is not dynasty politics by all political partys?????? Many genuine party workers work hard for years but they have been sidelined by leaders of all political partys for their family members to take post. Enter politics and you will experience what is dynasty!!!???
