Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi Thursday said he is "very excited" about his meetings with party office-bearers, which, he said, is an attempt to check from them "what they are feeling".
"I am meeting all the people. Checking from them what they are feeling. I am talking to them. I am trying to understand what they would like. I am quite excited about it," he said when asked about the possibility of an organisational reshuffle in the Congress. "As I am speaking to all people in the party, I am finding a tremendous talent there. And it is just a question of aligning it and getting on with it," said Rahul. "I am just familiarising myself a little bit." The Congress leader had earlier held about seven hours long meeting, stretched over three days, with AICC office-bearers and 13 hours long meeting, stretched over two days, with PCC chiefs and CLP leaders. At these meetings, he asked them to speak their mind freely and frankly.
It, however, turned out to be an exercise in blame game with factional leaders taking potshots at one another in his presence.
