Faulty Sound System Incites Chaos In Congress

Chants and slogan-shouting broke out in Gujarat Congress, India after their sound system broke down recently. Some members rose up against Union Minister and party in charge of the state, Mukul Wasnik, on distribution of party tickets. Wasnik has also been accused of selling tickets meant for deserving candidates who wanted to contest the recently held assembly polls.

The system initially went off when congress chief Shaktisinh Gohil was speaking in support of a political resolution. As Wasnik went to inform electricians of the faulty sound system, slogan-shouting began. There were also chants in his favor. "The sound system broke down again after some time, prompting Delhi chief minister Shiela Dikshit and other party leaders rushing to the control room to ensure that the system was rectified," according to the New Delhi Daily News and Analysis.
