After two disastrous outings in consecutive national elections, Rahul Gandhi may not be the best bet for the Congress party's revival, one of the 23 veterans who have found themselves cornered over their so-called dissent letter to chief Sonia Gandhi, has told NDTV in signs that the fissures in the 135-year-old outfit are far from patched up. "We are no more in a position to say that Rahul Gandhi will be able to lead the party and help us get 400 seats in 2024. We must realise that in two Lok Sabha elections in 2014 and 2019, the party hasn't been able to get the required seats," one of the key signatories of the letter said, requesting not to be named.

As per news report of NDTV, in recent months, there have been growing calls for Rahul Gandhi to return as Congress chief. Mr Gandhi had quit after the 2019 election debacle and two months later his mother Sonia Gandhi returned as interim chief. "From Nagpur to Shimla (in the northern half of the country), the party has 16 seats out of which eight are from Punjab. We must realise we are in India and there is a different reality. If there is a meeting, I will put forth my views on this issue," said the leader who was instrumental in its drafting and getting signatures.
