CWC meeting on 28th, election of new Congress President will be announced
The Congress Working Committee meeting, the most prominent wing of the country's oldest party Congress, will be held on August 28. In this meeting, the announcement for the election of the next President of Congress will be made. But the special thing is that the Gandhi family will not be in the country during this meeting.
The sound of change of power in Congress has intensified. It is believed that after 24 years, the next president of Congress may be from outside the Gandhi family. A meeting of the Congress Working Committee (CWC), the most prominent wing of Congress, will be held on August 28. In this meeting, the election of the next President of Congress can be announced. Senior Congress leader KC Venugopal has given this information.
But the Gandhi family will not be in the country during the announcement of the change of power in Congress. Yes, Congress Interim President Sonia Gandhi, former President Rahul Gandhi and General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi will not be in India during the Congress Working Committee meeting to be held on August 28. All of them will be travelling abroad in connection with the treatment of Sonia Gandhi. However, all these will be virtually included in the CWC meeting. Congress General Secretary Jairam Ramesh said that Congress President Sonia Gandhi will travel abroad for a medical examination. Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra will travel with the Congress President.
According to Congress sources, Sonia Gandhi may not be present in the country when the Congress leader sits down to elect the next party president, as she will visit her ailing mother after the checkup. However, Rahul Gandhi will return on 4 September to address the party's mega rally at Delhi's Ramlila Maidan against inflation and unemployment.
He is also expected to lead the party's 'Bharat Jodo Yatra' from Kanyakumari on September 7. It is not yet known whether Priyanka Gandhi will be back for the 'Mahagai Par Halla Bol' rally on 4 September. Congress is facing an internal crisis with senior leaders Anand Sharma, Ghulam Nabi Azad and now Jaiveer Shergill resigning from key posts of the party.
Meanwhile, the possibility of Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot becoming the next Congress President has become strong. According to experts, Gehlot's claim is the strongest. But after his claim, the Sachin Pilot camp in Rajasthan has kept silent. Here in September, the Congress is going to have two big events - the 'Drawn Par Halla Bol' rally and the nationwide 'Bharat Jod Yatra' - and Sonia Gandhi is unlikely to be present at both the events, although Rahul Gandhi will be.
Congress has called a meeting of its working committee on August 28 to decide the schedule for the election of the next party president. How. Venugopal, General Secretary (Organisation) tweeted, "There will be a virtual meeting of the CWC on August 28 at 3 PM to decide the dates for the election of the next Congress President." According to media reports, the new president of Congress will be announced by Diwali.
