Odisha Congress Upbeat After Sonia Gandhi Takes Over As Party’s Interim Chief


"You have suddenly come up with this idea".

When reporters told her that her name is present in the five region-wise groups formed to hold consultations, she said, "Rahul and I can not participate in the election of the new party chief".

The Congress Working Committee (CWC) meeting being held on Saturday in New Delhi to elect the new party chief has ended. "The Congress leaders are dependent on a single family but that particular family has already lost its charisma". The second meeting ended at around 11 p.m.

The family produced three prime ministers: Jawaharlal Nehru, India's first and longest-serving leader, his daughter Indira Gandhi and her son Rajiv. "The party promotes dynasty politics and has never thought beyond the Gandhi family".

Those being cited as Rahul's possible replacement ahead of Saturday's Congress Working Committee (CWC) meeting, convened to choose a president, had not inspired confidence among party workers or leaders.

Congress Party seems to be still struggling.

Interestingly, numerous subgroups formed for consultations among state unit party leaders have endorsed Rahul Gandhi to lead the party.

In January, Rahul Gandhi inducted Vadra, 47, into politics as a party general secretary months before the elections.

At that time, Jyotiraditya Scindia requested Rahul Gandhi to reconsider his decision to step down, to which he replied that he was not escaping from responsibilities but would work with more dedication for the party under a new President.

She has credited her mother-in-law and former prime minister Indira Gandhi for the experience she gained in learning the intricacies of politics and she has proved this to every Congress leader when she steered the party to new avenues of success during her tenure.

Venugopal also said that CWC unanimously resolved that Rahul Gandhi should continue as Congress president and requested him to accept this decision, however, he declined to withdraw his resignation.

The CWC has been divided into five region-wise groups to hold talks with the state in-charges, state chiefs, AICC department chairman, party MPs and build a consensus on the name of the new party chief. Gandhi, who won with a record margin from the hill constituency in the April Lok Sabha elections, said during his stay he would visit relief camps across Wayanad and review relief measures with state government officials.
