Congress wants Rahul to take over leadership of party, India

A day after Rahul Gandhi said ‘a government of the youth’ will come to power in 2014, Congress said on Thursday it wanted the young leader to take over future leadership of the party and the country.

Party spokesman PC Chacko told reporters that this was the feeling of the rank and file of Congress all over the country and hoped that Gandhi would respond positively.

‘We all expect he will take up leadership of the party and after that the reins of the administration... Rahul Gandhi should take over future leadership of the party and the country’, he said.

Asked why Congress was not formally projecting Gandhi as its PM candidate, he said ‘that we don’t do. It is not the Congress practice’.

‘It is an old story’, he shot back when told that Amarinder Singh was projected the CM candidate in Punjab in assembly polls last year.

Chacko’s remarks came a day after Gandhi had said ‘a government of the youth’ will come to power in 2014 which will work for the poor and ‘change’ the country.
