Preparations begin to make Rahul Gandhi Congress President
The Congress has started preparations to make Rahul Gandhi president again. This can also be discussed in the Congress Special Committee meeting to be held on Tuesday. According to the information, the election process for the post of president will start in December. The proposal will be passed in the name of Rahul at the working committee meeting in December itself. After this, Rahul's name will be sealed by calling a national convention in January.
The session will also elect 12 members of the new working committee, while the new chairman will have the right to choose another 12 members. According to party sources, preparations are on for the presidential election and this cannot be avoided. At the same time, pro-Rahul leaders are also convinced that the results of the by-elections in Bihar and many states should not be linked with the leadership of the organization.
The party has also won elections in many states under Rahul's leadership. Earlier, Sonia Gandhi had offered to step down in a working committee meeting after writing an outspoken and open letter against the leadership of 23 Congress leaders. After much persuasion, she agreed to hold the post of interim president till the next election. Therefore, after the relaxation of the Corona rules, the party wants to call a meeting of the Working Committee and take a decision therein.
