Why Congress is Essential for India and How it Can Be Revived

Shashi Tharoor

Congress must rejuvenate itself, bringing in fresh faces and young blood into its leadership at all levels. It would help if the party took steps to promote inner-party democracy and a more consultative decision-making style: Open up the party to internal elections for its key positions.

Allow and encourage the emergence of local, state and regional leaders, ratified by periodic votes of party members
