A senior leader told The Indian Express that a CWC meeting could be convened soon to persuade Rahul Gandhi to continue for one last time. “If he does not relent, an alternative system will be put in place,” the leader said.
The conclave was divided into two parts. Firstly, there was a steering or subject committee meeting held in Delhi’s Constitution Club. Two resolutions, one political and one related to agriculture, were discussed to be presented in the plenary. The second part was the two-day open session.
The Congress has had very few contested elections in its entire history. Once Gandhiji became its leader, he nominated the candidate for party president and the All India Congress Committee duly voted for the sole candidate.
`The participants unanimously called upon the party's national vice president Rahul Gandhi to take command of the party at the national level,' said Ravinder Sharma, Congress' chief spokesperson in Jammu and Kashmir.
