Congress will start process to make Rahul Gandhi chief on Monday

Congress general secretary Ambika Soni credited the success of the entire campaign in Gujarat to Rahul.

During the meeting, slated to begin at 10.30am on Monday morning, the CWC is likely to approve the schedule for election of Congress President.

Amidst speculations of Rahul Gandhi's elevation to the top post, Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Saturday called the meeting of Congress Working Committee on November 20.

Sources also said that Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi would be elevated as the President of the Congress before 5th of December. The CM said that Rahul Gandhi had pegged the number of unemployed persons in Gujarat at 30 lakh in his speeches.

"It's a matter of few days when we'll have our new party president".

As most people believe Rahul will not face any opposition like his mother in becoming the president of Congress, reports have stated that the meeting may just be a formality.

Praising the former prime minister, Mr Pawar said Rajiv Gandhi was a visionary leader.

Once the schedule for the election is approved by the CWC, the party's Central Election Authority will notify the same.

With his election, party leaders are hoping, both ends would be achieved. An election, if required, would be conducted on 8 December.

On the last day of filing the nomination, if no other contestant files his/her nomination against Gandhi, then he will be declared president unopposed.

On October 12, the Uttar Pradesh Congress Committee (UPCC) also passed a resolution asking him to take over the reins of the party.

During his recent Gujarat visit, the Gandhi scion had given hint that he will take charge of Congress before the state goes to poll.

The Election Commission has set December 31 as the deadline to complete its internal poll.
