Senior Mumbai Regional Congress Committee (MRCC) leaders on Sunday met Maharashtra Congress in-charge - Mallikarjun Kharge - and demanded removal of their president, Sanjay Nirupam. The leaders recommended name of former Lok Sabha MP, Milind Deora, for the post.
Sources said that the MRCC leaders had sought a meeting with Rahul, however, the Congress president's office asked them to meet Kharge instead, who was in Mumbai for the past two days for a parliamentary committee meet.
Along with the MRCC leaders, supporters of late Congress leader Gurudas Kamat were also a part of the delegation, who were said to be upset with Nirupam's stance on the crucial issues related to the party's day to day functioning and the strategy for the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) elections, including ticket distribution.
