Amicable solutions found: Shashi Tharoor on debates at Congress meet
Udaipur, May 15: Senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor today said the discussions of the political committee, set up to deliberate key challenges facing the party and the country at the Chintan Shivir here, saw views "passionately debated" with "amicable solutions found".
Tharoor said the 'Nav Sankalp Chintan Shivir' was an excellent opportunity to catch up with party colleagues from across the country, including M Pallam Raju and Mani Shankar Aiyar.
Posting a photograph with some members of the political committee, set up by party chief Sonia Gandhi, to lead the discussions on the topic, Tharoor said they gathered for a group photo after deliberations adjourned on Saturday night.
"The discussions were a robust example of inner-party democracy in action: views passionately debated and amicable solutions found," said the MP from Thiruvananthapuram, who was among the group of 23 leaders who wrote to Gandhi in 2020 seeking large scale reforms.
