'President' Rahul Gandhi: Congress' highest decision-making body passes resolution

'President' Rahul Gandhi: Congress' highest decision-making body passes resolution

The Congress Working Committee (CWC) today conducted a meeting at 10 Janpath Road, the residence of Sonia Gandhi.

Congress yesterday announced an election date for its top post in what is considered a mere formality for promoting Mr Gandhi, 47.

The BJP on Monday hit back at Congress chief Sonia Gandhi for her criticism of the government over likely curtailment of Parliament's Winter Session, saying her charge was a "lie" and would rank among the "greatest hypocrisies" in recent times. A day later, on 5 December, all nominations would be scrutinised after which the elections, if necessary, would be held on 16 December while the results would be announced on 19 December. Here are five points from Sonia Gandhi's speech in the CWC meeting that you should know. The Congress party president poll schedule has released now.

In 2008, there was a break during the parliamentary session due to the state elections in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and Delhi, he said.

"Sonia Gandhi said", The Prime Minister had the audacity to have a midnight celebration in Parliament to launch an ill prepared and flawed GST but today he lacks the courage to face Parliament". The former Union minister, however, said his promotion would not lead to the party's old guard getting "thrown by the wayside". Decision on dates for organisational polls likely.




"Sonia Gandhi is our leader and mentor".

Having been forced by the Election Commission to complete the process of internal elections, the party will hold elections for the first time in the last seven years. "Over the last 18 months, the election process that has concluded in all but six states has elected block presidents, an equal number of delegates, primary units and party members".

"Rahulji, but also to crores and crores of Congressmen and women always".

Once the president is named, he or she will choose a new CWC team comprising vice-president, general secretaries and treasurer among other office-bearers. Rahul Gandhi became the party's vice president on January 2, 2013.
