Key Congress meet on Friday as party hunts for new president

Jan 21, 2021 08:37 IST

The Congress Working Committee will meet on Friday to draw up a schedule for the long-pending organisational elections that could also pick a new party chief, the Hindustan Times has reported. The meeting of the party's top decision making body comes five months after the Congress’ interim president Sonia Gandhi asked the party to relieve her from the top post. Sonia Gandhi offered to step down at a CWC meet last August following a letter by more than 20 prominent party leaders that demanded an “active, full-time and visible” president. Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi is widely preferred within the party to replace Sonia Gandhi as efforts to pick a non-Gandhi party president have not succeeded in the past two years ago.
