"But each time rank and file of the Congress Party has shown undivided and firm belief in the party leadership and that is why we came out of it stronger and united after every crisis. Even today, Congress is the only party which can keep this nation united and take it forward on the path of comprehensive development," he further tweeted. 

He also said that the party faced a crisis in 1969, 1977, 1989 and 1996, and each time it had come out stronger due to its ideology, programmes and policies, among other things.

Recently, Sibal is being seen openly questioning Congress's leadership for the crisis it is facing for many years and was one of the 23 senior leaders of the party that wrote a letter to the party chief Sonia Gandhi on suggestions to revive India's Grand Old Party.
