CWC meet sees spat between Kharge, Chowdhury

New Delhi: The Congress Working Committee (CWC) on October 16 witnessed a spat between Leader of the Opposition (LoP) in the Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge and Congress’ leader in the Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury over their performance in the recently concluded monsoon session of Parliament.

According to sources when Mr. Kharge gave a detailed assessment of what the LoP’s office did in terms of mobilising like-minded parties on issues such as inflation, farm laws and the alleged snooping using Pegasus spyware, Mr. Chowdhury interrupted to point out that he should “factor in the opposition in the Lok Sabha as well”.

The LoP in the Rajya Sabha pointed out that he had mentioned the Lok Sabha as well but Mr. Chowdhury was not perhaps attentive. He also added how can he forget Mr. Chowdhury, who served as a junior minister under him in the Rail Ministry.
