Today, in the Congress Working Committee meeting all the senior Congress leaders requested Rahul Gandhi to be the president. Replying to them, Rahul said he will consider the thought. “I need clarity at the level of ideology from the party leaders,” Rahul added.

In the meeting, the leaders proposed the idea that Rahul should be considered as the president of the party until a new president is being elected. “Rahul should be made the working President,” they added. In a reference to the recent rebellion of the G-23 leaders who questioned the Congress leadership in the aftermath of the Punjab crisis, Sonia Gandhi at the CWC meeting said she is a full-time and hands-on Congress president.

In the meeting, Sonia stated that she always appreciated ‘frankness’ and there was no need to speak through media. “So let us all have a free and honest discussion. But what should get communicated outside the four walls of this room is the collective decision of the CWC,” she said.

She further opened up and spoke on the farmers’ agitation and protest, and the pandemic. “A large number of our colleagues, particularly the younger ones, have taken on leadership roles in taking party policies and programs to the people – whether it is the agitation of farmers, provision of relief during the pandemic,” she added.

Furthermore, in the five-hour-long meeting, the leaders decided that the elections to the post of Congress president will be held between August 21 and September 20, next year.
