New Delhi: Senior leader Shashi Tharoor has said it is essential to hold elections for most leadership posts in the Congress.
Tharoor said he is confident that the party, under interim chief Sonia Gandhi, will soon work towards that end.
The Congress leader said he has repeatedly pointed out that a free election among party workers, for most of the leadership posts within the party, including the (Congress) Working Committee, is essential.
Tharoor said internal party polls will help provide a credible mandate to the new incoming set of leaders and allow them to operate successfully.
It also will also help inject new energy within the Congress, he added.
