Congress decides not to send spokespersons for TV debates

New Delhi: The Congress has decided not to send spokespersons for television debates for a month. The move comes after the party’s debacle in the recently concluded Lok Sabha polls.

The Congress has often accused the media of being “biased” towards the Modi dispensation.

“@INCIndia has decided to not send spokespersons on television debates for a month,” Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala tweeted.

“All media channels/editors are requested to not place Congress representatives on their shows,” he said. The Congress is currently facing a crisis with party president Rahul Gandhi adamant on his decision to quit after the poll debacle – winning just 52 Lok Sabha seats – and its state governments facing an uncertain future.
