Congress will not survive a 'puppet' president, elections at every level required, says Maharashtra former CM P Chavan
Senior Congress leader and a member of G-23 Prithviraj Chavan said that if Rahul Gandhi does not want to become the president, then alternative arrangements should be made and a new Congress president should be elected through elections
The G-23, the members of which were ridiculed by the party loyalists after their letter became public on August 24, 2020, has virtually disintegrated over time with the resignations of Azad and Kapil Sibal, seen as the prime movers of the initiative.
Congress G-23 leaders meet to introspect drubbing in Assembly results, likely to target party leadership
The leaders agreed that the party was staring at an “existential crisis” and it will sink further if credible corrective actions are not taken

Congress crisis: Anwar, Bhagel and others attack G-23 coalition, launch strong defence in favour of Gandhi leadership
In an apparent dig at Sibal and the G-23, Congress general secretary Tariq Anwar said it is amazing to see how some people's character can change so much in their 'selfishness'
On Wednesday, senior party leaders Ghulam Nabi Azad and Kapil Sibal, who are part of a group of 23 leaders (G-23) seeking organisational revamp, demanded that a meeting of the CWC be convened immediately
Referring to the crisis in Punjab, Sibal demanded an immediate meeting of the Congress Working Committee be convened and wondered who in the party was taking decisions in the absence of a full-time president
Apart from Sibal, G-23 leaders Shashi Tharoor and M Veerappa Moily have also slammed Prasada for switching to the BJP
Asked about the meet, the Congress said they were senior and highly respected members of the party and their best contribution to the Congress' cause would be to get active in five poll-bound states
