Rahul Gandhi should take full charge of the Congress, says Digvijay Singh

NEW DELHI: Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh on Saturday said it is high time that party vice-president Rahul Gandhi took full charge of the party.

“It is a general feeling within Congress that the party has always encouraged younger workers. And, therefore, it’s time for Rahul Gandhi to take charge. However, the timing should be left for him to decide,” said Singh.

Digvijay’s comment comes at a time when the Congress is gradually losing its popularity among the masses. The verdict of the assembly polls in Haryana and Maharashtra is a testament to this fact as the Congress failed to live up to its expectations and was trounced by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in both states.

Earlier, the Congress vice-president had brainstorming sessions with party leaders Sushil Kumar Shinde, Amarinder Singh, Janardan Dwivedi, Mukul Wasnik, Girija Vyas, Shashi Tharoor and Ajay Maken over the future course for the party.

However, Congress president Sonia Gandhi did not participate in the meeting, raising speculations over Rahul’s stronger role in the party in the future.

According to reports, the Congress vice-president had also called leaders from across the country to New Delhi to chalk out a strategy to revive the party. (ANI)
