Sardinha among 10 MPs who want Rahul as Lok Sabha Leader

South Goa Lok Sabha Member of Parliament (MPs) Francisco Sardinha is among the 10 MPs that have demanded that Rahul Gandhi become the Leader of the House in Lok Sabha, the post vacated by President Pranab Mukherjee.

The MPs wrote to the Congress President Sonia Gandhi that Rahul’s appointment as Lok Sabha Leader was the need of the hour to instill a ‘sense of confidence’ among dalits, tribals, poor and Youth.

“We think it is the need of the hour that Rahul should play a larger and proactive role in Parliament as the party is facing many challenges inside and outside Parliament,” the letter said.

The 10 MPs appear to be a carefully selected group representing 10 states which include Bhakta Charan Das (Odisha), P C Chacko (Kerala), Arvind Sharma (Haryana), Sanjay Nirupam (Maharashtra), Pratap Singh Bajwa (Punjab), ML Sharma (Jammu and Kashmir), Ratan Lal (Rajasthan), Jp Gaud (Karnataka) and Ninong Ering (Arunachal) and Goa’s MP Francisco Sardinha.
