CWC to meet on Monday, set ball rolling for Rahul's elevation

CWC to meet on Monday, set ball rolling for Rahul's elevation”

During the meeting, slated to begin at 10.30am on Monday morning, the CWC is likely to approve the schedule for election of Congress President.

Rahul Gandhi, who has been prepping for his promotion as the Congress president, could take over from his mother Sonia Gandhi as the top boss of the Congress before the Gujarat assembly elections.

The election of party president will be the culmination of the ongoing congress organisational election. The plenary is also expected to witness the election to the CWC, the party's top decision-making body. Senior Congress leader and Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha, Ghulam Nabi Azad, said on Friday that party vice-president Rahul Gandhi is fighting alone against PM Narendra Modi in Gujarat assembly elections.

The CEA has already completed the process of constitution of members of Pradesh Congress Committees, the electoral college for electing party president, in all States and UTs. After being promoted, he is expected to announce a new team of AICC office bearers to prepare the Congress for the 2019 national elections.

It is not clear whether the CWC will decide the role Sonia will play post Rahul's elevation, or convene another meeting later on this.

Rahul's rise will also settle the wearying speculation about when the generational shift in the Congress hierarchy will come about. The delay in convening the CWC and the suspense over Rahul's elevation have been the subject of much debate in the party. Though this was attributed to the leadership's preoccupation with the Himachal Pradesh and Gujarat elections, most senior leaders were of the view that Rahul should be elevated before the Gujarat polls. Interestingly, earlier this month Rahul was asked about his elevation by party managers at a meeting called to discuss nationwide protests against demonetisation and GST planned for the anniversary of note ban on November 8.
