Why is Shinde retiring?

January 08 2023

Senior Congress leader Sushil Kumar Shinde became so emotional on Congress’s foundation day, December 28, that he announced his retirement from politics on the same day. If sources are to be believed, Shinde was running very upset with the party high command for some time. Shinde had been hoping for a long time that the Gandhi family would give him an important role in the party. Even two years ago, his name was floated for the post of Congress President, as he was considered very close to Rahul Gandhi. This time also, another Dalit leader Mallikarjun Kharge won the race for the post of President, as the Gandhi family was also looking at the upcoming assembly elections in Karnataka. This time, when Rahul Gandhi’s yatra was leaving from Maharashtra, Shinde wanted to take Rahul to Chandrapur and get a gigantic statue of Babasaheb Ambedkar unveiled by his hands. Rahul was also ready for this, but at the last moment Shinde’s opponents filled Rahul’s ears and Rahul’s yatra passed by the side of the statue but Rahul did not unveil the statue at all. Now, on this 26th January, the local leaders of Chandrapur (including BJP leaders) are unveiling this statue. Anyway, Shinde was not even invited to the Chintan Shivir of Congress, felt that enough is enough and thought it right to sit at home.
