CWC Meeting: Rahul Gandhi Will Be The New Face Of Congress

Virtually signalling the elevation of Rahul Gandhi to the post of Congress president, the party on Monday announced the schedule of its presidential elections in December.

Congress Working Committee has passed a resolution to promote Rahul Gandhi as the party president.

If necessary - in case there are other candidates - polling will take place on December 16, and the result will be announced on December 19 after votes are counted on the same day.

Sonia has been the president of the grand old party for a record 19 years since 1998, when she replaced Sitaram Kesri.

Rahul's elevation as party vice-president in 2013 should have been followed by his promotion to party president fairly soon. The election process is likely to be completed before the Gujarat Assembly polls, the first phase of which will be held on December 9, reports said.

The Congress party constitution allows the CWC, with around 2,000 members drawn from various states across the country, to appoint the party president. So, it's expected that Rahul will be the next party president on 1st December.

The Modi government is also forcefully trying to change the history of modern India by systematically erasing the contributions made by Pandit Nehruji and Indira Gandhi - be it through rewriting school textbooks, through malicious misinformation and propaganda, or ignoring with disdain the importance of the birth centenary of Indiraji, she said.

Yet Mr Gandhi faces many challenges in reviving Congress as it has been struggling since a massive defeat in the 2014 General Election and Mr Modi continues to be popular. "(Congress) did so in 2011, and even before that", he told reporters in Rajkot.

Randeep Singh Surjewala and Jyotiraditya Scindia are also on the list. Sources had informed that the Congress was not very keen on having an alliance with NCP after the latter "back-stabbed" the party during Ahmed Patel's Rajya Sabha election.

"The Modi-government in its arrogance has cast a dark shadow on India's Parliamentary democracy by sabotaging the Winter Session of Parliament on flimsy grounds". "We enjoy good equation with her", he said.
