Congress celebrates ‘ACCHE DIN’ as Rahul takes charge

Since 1885 when Congress was formed, it’s a very important day for Congress Party today as Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi files his nominations for the post of Congress President.
Paving the way for his much-awaited elevation and setting the stage for a contest against PM Narendra Modi ahead of 2019 Lok Sabha elections. Current Congress chief and his mother Sonia Gandhi and former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh are among the proposers for his candidature.
Rahul’s big moment has been shadowed by a rebellion of sorts from Maharashtra Congress leader Shehzad Poonawalla, who says the elections are “rigged”. “Congress had “o place for Shehzad, but for Shehzada (prince),” he says.

Manmohan Singh, Ahmed Patel, Sheila Dikshit, Jitin Prasada, V Narayanasamy, Mohsina Kidwai, Siddaramaiah, Ashok Gehlot, Tarun Gogoi, Sushil Kumar Shinde and Jyotiraditya Scindia are present in the room and chatting, greeting with the soon-to-be Congress President, Rahul Gandhi.

With Rahul likely to be the only candidate in the fray, he could be declared the next Congress chief today itself, after the nominations have been scrutinised. Rahul will succeed his mother Sonia, who has held the post for almost two decades in a row.
