NEW DELHI: Outnumbered by 'loyalists' at the CWC meeting on Monday, several dissenting members who signed the letter seeking a "fully active and visible" leadership for the party took to social media to explain their positions.
Senior advocate and Rajya Sabha MP Kapil Sibal, who had on Monday tweeted an angry reaction to a claim that Rahul Gandhi had alleged that the dissenters were "colluding with BJP" only to retract it later, said on Tuesday that the concerns they had voiced were "not about a post, it's about my country".
Sibal's sentiments were echoed by Vivek Tankha, another signatory to the letter. "Friends, we are not dissenters but proponents of revival, the letter was not a challenge to the leadership but a parchment of action to strengthen the party. Universally, truth is best defence whether it be court or public affairs, history acknowledges the brave and not the timid," he said on Twitter.
