Sonia Gandhi has been selected new interim Congress president after Congress Working Committee (CWC) met on Saturday.
Senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad confirmed Sonia Gandhi’s name after Rahul Gandhi refused to accept the CWC offer to remain Congress president.
The Congress Working Committee made a last ditch effort on Saturday evening to persuade Rahul Gandhi to continue as the party president, and proposed that if Rahul still doesn’t relent, Sonia Gandhi should be the interim president and oversee elections for the top post.
The CWC – which meeting for the second time on Saturday evening -concluded its discussions close to 11 pm.
