After 13 years of entering politics, Rahul Gandhi is now all set to become the president of Congress party. The 47-year-old filed his nomination on December 4, which received a unanimous vote from the party and was proposed by many, including mother Sonia Gandhi and former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. Rahul Gandhi had emerged as the one and only nominee for the position.

While many party members and ministers are heaping praises on Gandhi, saying that his elevation would give the party a “new wave of hope”, social media users were quite scathing. Flooding Twitter with memes and jokes, many users expressed how they felt about Rahul taking over as the party president. While, some tweets were funny, other inclined a little towards the meaner side. Here are some of the tweets:

While, some tweets were direct, others were a little subtle and stated that this ‘competition’ was something that Rahul couldn’t lose.

Though, there are no other candidates, Mullappally Ramachandran, Congress central election authority chairman stated that they would go by the book and the official announcement of Rahul’s election would be made only on December 11, the last date of withdrawal of nominations.
