NEW DELHI: Congress Party National President Rahul Gandhi has said on Thursday that he will not decide on his successor, amid speculation soured by his upcoming move. According to report, when Rahul Gandhi was asked who would be appointed Congress president after him, he replied that he would not take a decision on his successor.
Rahul Gandhi has been adamant on quitting as party president since the embarrassing defeat in the Lok Sabha elections, but the CWC, the highest decision-making body of the Congress, has flatly rejected his resignation proposal and asked him to reconstitute the party at all levels. Rahul Gandhi has also said that his stand is still the same that the Rafale fighter aircraft deal has been stolen.
In reply to a question on Rafael's mention in President Ram Nath Kovind address to the joint meeting of both the Houses of Parliament, Gandhi made this statement in Parliament House. "My stand is still the same as the Rafale fighter plane deal stolen," Rahul Gandhi told press men outside Parliament. Even in the Lok Sabha elections, Rahul Gandhi had raised the issue of Rafael issue, but the Congress is still a tough one.
