Hours after he raised questions over the functioning of the Congress, senior party leader Kapil Sibal on Wednesday came under attacks from several quarters with party workers also protesting outside his house
Once again a demand has grown from some Congress leaders for a deep introspection within the party after the latest debacles of party candidates in the recent legislative assembly elections in Bihar and in the bypolls in Madhya Pradesh and other states.
Senior Congress leader and Rajya Sabha MP Kapil Sibal on Monday openly questioned former party chief Rahul Gandhi's criticism that the section of leaders, who questioned the impasse over leadership, colluded with the BJP.
Sibal, who as the HRD minister had spearheaded a reforms process in the education sector under which it was decided to abolish compulsory CBSE Board exams for Class 10, but when the NDA came to power they reversed that.
The senior Congress leader also suggested that courses can be reduced both in schools and universities and the teaching time lost in the 2020-21 session due to the pandemic could be made up in the next year with the extra effort from both the teacher and student communities.
