WATCH: Ex-president Rahul Gandhi's advice for the next Congress president

Rahul Gandhi said the upcoming Congress president must embrace the idea and vision of India underlining that the position was a belief system.

With party's presidential polls round the corner, former Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday shared a piece of advice for the contenders of the top post.

Gandhi said the Congress president was not just an organisational position but an ideological post and a belief system.

He added that decisions, including that of one-man, one-post, taken at the chintan shivir at Udaipur in Rajasthan earlier this year are expected to be followed.

The Wayanad MP also reiterated that whosover becomes the president will be taking a historic position- the one that defines and has defined a particular view of India, adding that the concerned individual should remember that the post represents a set of ideas, a belief system and a vision of India.

On the nation-wide raids on the offices and other premises of the Popular Front of India (PFI), Gandhi said that "all forms of communalism regardless where they come from should be combated." "There should be zero tolerance towards communalism and it should be combated," he added.

"What we decided at Udaipur, we expect that commitment to be maintained," Gandhi said on being asked whether he would stand by the Udaipur chintan shivir decision on one-man, one-post.
