Rattled Congress "tells" media: Don't fall for rumour mongering, speculations

Surjewala
Rattled by the report that Congress president Rahul Gandhi criticised at least thee senior Congress leaders -- former Union minister P Chidambaram, Madhya Pradesh chief minister Kamal Nath and Rajasthan chief minister Ashok Gehlot -- for placing their sons above the party during the Lok Sabha polls, party spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala has blamed media for falling on "conjectures, speculations, insinuations, assumptions, gossip and rumour mongering".
Claiming that the Congress Working Committee (CWC) as the highest decision making body was involved merely in "exchange of ideas and take corrective action", Surjewala said, members of CWC had expressed their views in the meeting dated May 25, 2019, looking into "the reverses in the Lok Sabha elections as an opportunity for radical changes and a complete organizational overhaul, for which it authorized Rahul Gandhi."
Calling such media attitude "uncalled for and unwarranted", he asked media go by only what the CWC as a "collective deliberation on the performance of the party" officially says, instead of "casting aspersions on the role or conduct of any specific individual." He asked media "to not fall into the trap of conjectures or speculations", but instead wait for what he called "calibrated efforts by the Congress party towards future course of action."
