As expected by many, the Congress said Rahul Gandhi was the unquestioned choice of all its workers across India when it comes to taking over as the party president and hoped that their desires would be fulfilled once the intra-party poll was over.
It is worthwhile mentioning that the newly-elected members of the Delhi Congress today unanimously adopted a resolution, urging Rahul Gandhi to take over as the party president.
This has come after the Tamil Nadu unit of the Congress passed a resolution, authorising Congress president Sonia Gandhi to announce the new body of the Tamil Nadu Congress Committee (TNCC) and names of the All India Congress Committee (AICC) delegates from the state.
“Congress workers and leaders from across the country have unanimously expressed their desire for Rahul Gandhi to take over as the president of the Indian National Congress. We respect their sentiments. Nobody has any difference of opinion in this regard. Rahul Gandhi is the unquestioned choice of all the Congress workers, who have toiled hard for the party, for taking over as its president,” Congress communications in-charge Randeep Surjewala told reporters here.
One of the most significant thing to note is that the Congress organisational poll process is underway and the process of electing the AICC delegates and PCC bodies, which make the Electoral College for the election to the post of Congress president, is to be completed soon.
