New Delhi: Congress leader K.V. Thomas Friday said Priyanka Gandhi should work with party vice-president Rahul Gandhi to revive the party.
The former food minister in the Congress-led UPA government told a news channel here: “We see former prime minister Indira Gandhi in Priyanka. She should work with Rahul to lift the Congress party.”
Thomas said Priyanka does not need to “replace” Rahul, who is being blamed for the party’s defeat in the 2014 Lok Sabha election.
“We feel if Priyanka comes in not as a replacement but to help him (Rahul), it will be good for the party,” Thomas said.
Thomas had raised this demand earlier too, after the election results came in.
