Now it is a matter of days that Rahul Gandhi will be elected as the president of the Congress Party. The president of the party Sonia Gandhi has already given her green signal and is ready to hand over the responsibility to her son who has proved himself to face the rough and tumble of politics. At present he is the only leader the BJP is watching day in and day out to note what he says. His election campaign in Gujarat, the home state of the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, is attracting huge crowds and tremendous response from people of all castes, creeds and religions. His statements and speeches are reported to be pondered upon by the BJP brass to counter them. Neither his earnest wish nor willingness of Sonia Gandhi, but it is the demand of the party leaders from the senior ones to the cadre on the field who are eager to see him at helm of affairs of the party.
Rahul Gandhi continues to be the unquestioned choice of all workers and leaders for the post of party President, Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala said on October 4. He was responding to a question on the subject against the backdrop of the organizational elections of the party under way. Asked if the party would welcome a situation in which a worker or a leader chooses to contest the top post, Randeep Sujewala said democratic principle is the basic base in the party and any worker or leader is eligible to contest any post he chooses. However, the party workers and leaders realize the ground facts and the responsibilities to be shouldered by them.
Apart from the revelations made by the Congress spokesperson, it is a fact that having made a stronger and better image, Rahul Gandhi is all set to step into his mother’s shoes soon.
