Rahul Cong chief soon: Sonia

Rahul gandhi mocks Modi rahul gandhi narendra modi donald trump pakistan news India news latest news

Shortly after Rajasthan Congress leader Sachin Pilot's encouraging words on Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi's appointment as the party president, it seems like the move is likely to materialize sooner or later.

"You have been asking this for so many years and it's now happening", she said at a function organized by a television channel to release former president Pranab Mukherjee's autobiography, "The Coalition Years 1996-2012". "Rahul Gandhi's "pakhand" and "dhong" (hypocrisy and sham) is not going to work", Adityanath said, speaking to reporters at Nakhatrana in Kutch during BJP's "Gaurav Yatra" election campaign.

With the ongoing internal organizational polls, the Central Election Authority (CEA) of the party is set to ready a schedule for election of the party president which will need the assent of the CWC.

The GPCC earlier this week resolved authorising INC president Sonia Gandhi to nominate the next State Chief and All India Congress Committee (AICC) members from Goa.

Hamas Agrees Not to Attack Israel 'Unilaterally', Report Suggests
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas had previously insisted no unity government could be established before Hamas disarmed. Islamist movement Hamas is blacklisted as a terrorist organization by the United States and the European Union.

Sonia Gandhi's statement comes at a time when the organizational process to elevate Rahul Gandhi is in a full swing. The resolution for Rahul's name was proposed by chief minister Amarinder Singh and it was passed unanimously at a meeting convened in the Punjab Congress Bhawan.

Rahul Gandhi's political sphere so far has not been an impressive one and the Congress Vice president has failed to live up to the expectations but the senior party leaders and the prominent Congress politicians have always come out in favour of his election at the top post.

The Election Commission was scheduled to announce the dates for Himachal and Gujarat Assembly elections on Thursday, but it only announced the dates for Himachal.

Rahul Gandhi who now serves as the Vice President of Congress party is an MP from his local constituency Amethi in Uttar Pradesh.
