After OpIndia pointed out multiple errors about mistakes and omissions by the Congress party about their own organisation in their official website, they have now corrected those errors.
On 2nd June, we have reported how the Rahul Gandhi’s biography page on the Congress website mentioned that his father Rajiv Gandhi was Prime Minister of India when he was assassinated in 1991. But it was totally wrong as Rajiv Gandhi was the leader of the opposition at that time, and Chandra Shekhar was the PM.
Again on 3rd June, we had noticed that former Congress president Sitaram Kesri’s name was missing from the list of former presidents on the party website. Sitaram Kesri served as Congress party’s president from 1996 to 1998, after which he was unceremoniously removed to make way for Sonia Gandhi.
After the mistakes were pointed out, now the Congress party has corrected them in their website. Rahul Gandhi’s biography page no longer says that Rajiv Gandhi was PM when he was killed.
Similarly, the page for past party presidents also has been updated, and now Sitaram Kesri finds a place in the list of the Congress presidents in the post-liberalisation era, along with P.V. Narasimha Rao and Sonia Gandhi. Although the question will always remain, why his name was omitted from the site in the first place.
