Select new Congress president quickly, says Rahul

NEW DELHI: Congress President Rahul Gandhi said on Wednesday that the party should pick a new chief quickly “without further delay”. “I am not in the process of selecting the new President of the Congress,” Gandhi told the media in Parliament.

“Party should decide on the new president quickly without further delay, I’m nowhere in this process. I have already submitted my resignation and I am no longer the party president. CWC should convene a meeting at the earliest and decide,” Gandhi was quoted by news agency ANI as saying. Gandhi has refused to continue as the Congress President after the party suffered a major blow in the Lok Sabha elections, winning just 52 of the 542 seats.
