As per congress sources, the members of the party’s Central Election Authority which is overseeing the process of electing the next party president, are expected to meet Rahul Gandhi in a day or so regarding the same. Notably, the elevation of Rahul Gandhi has been in works for a long time. Now, party leaders are saying that the time has finally come. He was appointed as Party’s vice president in 2013, and his elevation is expected to come before crucial Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh polls, where Congress is facing tough challenge from the BJP party.
