Punjab Cong. passes resolution to appoint Rahul as AICC President

Breaking her silence on the question of elevation of Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, party president Sonia Gandhi on Friday said "it is now happening".

Rahul's elevation as the Congress president could be a game-changer for the party, feel insiders.

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.

"There is no opposition to Rahul's elevation as Congress president and hence it was passed unanimously soon after Babbar moved the resolution during the meeting", said UPCC spokesman Amarnath Agarwal.

He exhorted the people to make Gujarat "Congress mukt" (free from Congress). Out of 403 Assembly seats in Uttar Pradesh, there are only seven with the Congress.
