After Rajasthan, Gujarat and Chhattisgarh units pass resolution to make Rahul Gandhi party chief

The demand was made close on the heels of the Congress units in Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh. 

 

The Gujarat unit of the Congress on Sunday urged the party's national leadership to make Rahul Gandhi the president of the grand old party.

The demand was made close on the heels of the Congress units in Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh, the only two states where the party is in government on its own, passing resolutions that Rahul Gandhi be made the party head.

In Gujarat, the demand was made at the party's state executive committee meeting held in Ahmedabad, where all its members supported the proposal with a round of applause.

The Rajasthan Pradesh Congress Committee had on Saturday unanimously passed a resolution for making Rahul Gandhi the party's national president, while the Chhattisgarh Pradesh Congress Committee (CPCC) passed a similar resolution on Sunday.

The Congress had last month said the election for its president would be held on October 17. The result will be declared on October 19. If only one candidate is left in the fray after the withdrawal of nominations, the name of the president will be declared on October 8 itself.

The Chhattisgarh Pradesh Congress Committee (CPCC) on Sunday passed a resolution to make Rahul Gandhi the party's national president, Congress leaders said.

The resolution was passed in a meeting of 310 Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) delegates (who will vote in party's presidential election) from Chhattisgarh chaired by Hussain Dalwai, state Congress communication wing head Sushil Anand Shukla said.
