Who ended P Chidambaram's political career

Late in the evening, Interim President of Congress Sonia Gandhi announced the formation of a committee that will examine and implement the party's strategy regarding regulations. But the importance of the committee is not in its origins, but in the names and the message it wants to send - that the Great Old Party will continue without addressing the concerns of those who have written a letter that is an "active and visible leadership ”. Each name chosen also has a purpose and a message.

Let's start with P Chidambaram - one of the few guides visited by Sonia Gandhi, Manmoahn Singh and Rahul Gandhi in prison. Chidambaram has returned in full shape on party affairs and is also speculated to become one of the possible vice-presidents or committee members to aid and advise Sonia Gandhi.

Chidambaram has strong economic credentials and is also a legal star. Chidambaram's election is seen from the perspective of the other lawyer in the party who is not so much in favor now - Kapil Sibal.

Sibal was one of the 23 signatories to the letter. In fact, Sibal continued his veiled attacks on Congress even the day after the Congress Working Committee (CWC) meeting, writing on Twitter: “In the struggle for principles in life, in politics, in law, among social activists on social media Platforms, opposition is often voluntary, support is often managed. "

The excavation at the CWC meeting, during which a group of 23 high-ranking executives were attacked, cannot be overlooked here. However, Chidambaram, the lawyer, is seen as the opposite of Sibal, the lawyer who fought many cases pro bono for his party, most recently the Rajasthan crisis.

The other big participant is Digvijaya Singh. After the Madhya Pradesh crisis, many believed that his career was politically over, as he and Kamal Nath were responsible for the withdrawal of Jyotiraditya Scindia. But it is clear that Singh is back in full shape. It is a lesson to the letter writers that some follies can be forgiven, but as questioning the power of the Gandhi can never be overlooked. It is an excavation and a message to Ghulam Nabi Azad and Anand Sharma who are contemporaries of Singh.

Next is Jairam Ramesh, who has been appointed convenor of the committee. A leader who many thought had stopped in the cold with his Rajya Sabha tenure nearing its end. Ramesh, like Sharma, was used for his meticulous note-taking. Ramesh, a key participant in the victorious 2004 Congress campaign by ‘Congress ka haath, aam aadmi ke saath’, has been holding back lately.

His return to this committee, however, is seen as a nudge for Sharma and also as a message that Sonia Gandhi continues to trust him

Then comes Dr. Amar Singh, a former IAS appointee and MP from Fatehgarh Sahib, Punjab. Dr. Amar Singh was the chief secretary of Digvijaya Singh when he was the chief minister of Madhya Pradesh. Dr. Singh had raised the issue of ordinances in the Lok Sabha during zero hour, and his appointment is seen as a nudge to the other high profile Punjab MP who, however, is disregarded as one of the signatories - Manish Tewari.

Then there is Gaurav Gogoi, who many say is the rising star. Gogoi, who is responsible for the upcoming elections in West Bengal, is close to Rahul Gandhi and speaks both Hindi and English. More importantly, his appointment is seen as a nudge and a message to the other accomplished letter writers - Jitin Prasada and Shashi Tharoor. Incidentally, Prasada shared the same closeness to Rahul Gandhi that Gogoi now enjoys.

The committee has the stamp of Sonia and Rahul Gandhi, but a more important message is that if you want to be in the good books, you need to be on the right and not write letters.
