NEW DELHI: Rahul Gandhi is anticipated to be named as Congress president on Monday. Nevertheless, the Gandhi scion will officially take control of the reins from his mother Sonia Gandhi on December 16.
The announcement of Rahul Gandhi’s elevation is likely to be made today, the last date of withdrawal of election for the election of the Congress president which is a one horse race.Altogether 89 nominations received in his favour were found to be valid throughout scrutiny.On November 20, the Congress Working Committee had actually passed a resolution to make Rahul the party president.The CWC conference was gone to by Sonia Gandhi, Rahul, Manmohan Singh along
with senior party leaders Mallikarjun Kharge and Ahmed Patel.The meeting was convened at Sonia’s residence.Gandhi, who became the Congress Vice President in January 2013, will succeed his
mom Sonia, the longest-serving Congress chief who has
helmed the party since 1998. The 47-year-old Gandhi will be the 6th Nehru-Gandhi scion to helm the celebration after his fantastic grandfather Motilal Nehru, fantastic grandpa Jawaharlal Nehru, grandma Indira Gandhi and father Rajiv Gandhi.While pageantry would herald the dawn of a brand-new era in the celebration which has actually ruled the nation for over half-a-century since self-reliance, the 47-year-old scion of the Nehru-Gandhi family will face the overwhelming task of restoring lost glory to the party whose fortunes have actually been diminishing in the recent past.Today, the party, which when controlled practically the entire country, has its federal governments in simply 5 states and the Union Territory of Puducherry.
