Earlier, Sibal tweeted: "Rahul Gandhi says 'we are colluding with BJP “ Succeeded in Rajasthan High Court defending the Congress Party Defending party in Manipur to bring down BJP Govt. Last 30 years have never made a statement in favour of BJP on any issue Yet “ we are colluding with the BJP “! Apart from Sibal, Veteran Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad, one of the signatories of a letter to Sonia Gandhi, has said he will quit the party if he is found to be colluding with the BJP. The remarks from the senior Congress leaders came after Rahul Gandhi alleged that that those who had written the letter, at a time when the party was facing crisis in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh, were helping the BJP. In their letter to Sonia Gandhi, over 20 dissenting leaders had said the party failed to conduct an honest introspection of its losses in 2014 and 2019, and added that the uncertainty over leadership demoralised workers. Congress leaders had written to party president Sonia Gandhi for overhaul of the organisational structure and changes to the leadership. Ironically, at least three of the dissenters are part of the CWC. These include Ghulam Nabi Azad, Anand Sharma and Mukul Wasnik.
