The proceedings became tense when Azad declared that “certain organizational changes” would take place soon, “from top to bottom”.
However, NDTV quoted Tanwar as saying “I don’t see any leadership change in the coming days and no discussion was held over this issue in the meeting”.
“They are gunning for my resignation… why should I resign,” he further said.
