Name of Sitaram Kesri, not a favourite of Sonia Gandhi, missing from Congress’ official website as former party president

After unceremonious removal of Kesri as party president, Congress has not even bothered to include him as past party president on the website.

Sitaram Kesri who served as Congress’ party president from 1996 to 1998 after which he was unceremoniously removed to make way for Sonia Gandhi, has not found space on the party’s official website as well.

In December 1997 Sonia Gandhi joined Congress formally and addressed her first election rally in Tamil Nadu. Soon, Sitaram Kesri, who was the Congress party president, was being forced to step down to make way for Sonia Gandhi to become the party president. At 82, Kesri wanted to stick around as party president a little longer.

On March 14, 1998, Congress Working Committee decided to ask Kesri to step down so Sonia could take over. He was reportedly locked up in the bathroom at Congress headquarters in Akbar Road so he could not stop Sonia from entering the office with her supporters to take over as party president.

And now, Congress’ official website has not even bothered to include him as one of the former party presidents.

List of Congress Presidents on its official website

Earlier we had reported how Congress website had put up incorrect information that former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi was in office when he was assassinated in 1991. They have mentioned this incorrect information not once, but twice, in the biography of Rahul Gandhi.

While Congress has corrected that portion on their website, name of Sitaram Kesri as party president is still missing.

Perhaps it is time to get their IT cell head Divya Spandana, who has mysteriously deactivated her Twitter account, to have a refresher course of #KnowYourLegacy for the party itself.
