Sparsh Narware started this petition to Indian National Congress Party and

A strong democracy should not just have a strong government, it should have a strong opposition as well. 

It is extremely important for this country to have a strong leader of the largest opposition party i.e. Indian National Congress. Last 5 years the one ideology has been very dominant over the others because of the weak representation of the latter. The government has also enjoyed complete power without much checks & balances in this period.

There are few areas where BJP has completely bowled Congress out of the game, and now they need a leader who can address those areas. Some of the areas may be good communication, appeal to youth, social media strategy, appeal to the masses, etc.

Sachin Pilot is the perfect blend of youth & experience (in terms of work and not age) who can not only make the Congress party strong but will also strengthen the largest democracy of the world. Some of the reasons why he can be the most suitable candidate to be the next Congress President are as follows:

  • Good Communicator: I need not write anything to vouch for his communication skills, all you have to do listen ANY of his speeches on youtube or in person. He always seems to have a thorough understanding of the topic and the kind of calm, balanced & stable head he holds while on stage reminds me of M. S. Dhoni. Congress is in dire need of someone who can spread their message to large crowds, Sachin Pilot seems to be the best bet for that.
  • Work Experience: Sachin Pilot was given a similar but a bit smaller assignment 5 years ago when Congress saw their worst ever defeat in Rajasthan. He was made the head of Rajasthan Pradesh Congress Committee and what happened after that is known to everyone. Some news sources even reported that many of the independent MLAs also declared support to Sachin Pilot while the counting was going on.
  • Youth Appeal & Social Media: With the introduction of social media. Young voters have become a very important part of the electoral process. An increase in young voters percentage turnout can also be credited to social media. These youngsters not just actively participate in political issues they are also the one who can be held responsible to create a Modi Wave up to some extent. While on the other hand Rahul Gandhi being an average communicator suffered a lot because of this and eventually Congress party saw its reflections. Now owing to the responsible & brave decision of Mr. Gandhi, Congress party has a golden opportunity to counter all these challenges. However, there are not many leaders in the party who can create that level of appeal to the youth.
  • A leader from the North: Congress party is already doing good in the southern part of the country and its the northern part where they are at the verge of extinction. Congress didn't manage to win even 5 seats (out of 191) from the Hindi speaking northern states. (UP, Bihar, Rajasthan, MP, Haryana, Delhi). The need of the hour for Congress Party is a strong leader from the North, who can appeal to the masses there. Since most of the experienced leaders from the north have a negative perception against them because of various reasons, Sachin Pilot looks like the one who can turn the tables for them.

Sachin Pilot as the new Congress President may look like a radical move to some, but Congress party really need something radical at this point for their survival. If they end up with an old traditional leader with their traditional ways, they will not be doing anything but favour to the BJP.

On a lighter note, BCCI took a similar radical step by choosing Dhoni as Captain after their worst defeat in 2007WC, and everyone knows what happened in the next WC 2011.
