With the renewed push in Congress to select the new party chief after Rahul Gandhi’s resignation, the Chief Minister of Punjab Amarinder Singh has said that Priyanka Gandhi will get full support if she becomes Congress President.
It has been more than two months that Rahul Gandhi resigned from the Congress President post, yet the confusion regarding the Congress party President has not been resolved.
Now Priyanka Gandhi’s name is flashing on the top, and Punjab’s Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh has said that she has all the traits that an ideal Congress leader should have. But ultimately it’s the Congress Working Committee which has to decide regarding this.
More chorus is building for Priyanka Gandhi to take over as Congress President and a meeting can be held this week to decide over this matter. The Congress party wants to fill in the post of Party President before Independence Day so that the new President could unfurl the national flag on this auspicious day.
When Rahul Gandhi handed over his resignation, he had clearly said not to drag his mother and his sister into it. Some within the party even asked Sonia Gandhi to take over the party president, but she said no to that.
Amarinder Singh has been constantly advocating that the Congress party needs a young and dedicated face to take the party in the right direction. He even stressed that only a young leader would be able to connect with the people and can win their trust.
Earlier Shashi Tharoor too had advocated that Priyanka Gandhi Wadhra would be the most suitable candidate to lead the party because of her ultimate charisma in her that often reminds of her Grandmother Indira Gandhi. Let’s wait and watch for the final declaration by the party regarding this!
