Panjim (Goa) [India]Sep 06 (ANI): At its national executive meeting, the Indian Youth Congress (IYC) on Monday passed a resolution demanding that party leader Rahul Gandhi be reappointed as Congress President.
On the second day of the two-day National Executive Meeting of the Indian Youth Congress, a resolution was unanimously passed for Rahul Gandhi to once again become chairman of the Congress party.
Held in Goa, the meeting was chaired by IYC National President, Srinivas BV, and AICC National Officer and Joint Secretary, Krishna Allavaru.
Addressing the meeting, Srinivas BV said, “Rahul Gandhi ji is expected to become the national chairman of the Congress party again, for which a resolution was passed unanimously at the meeting. In the coming days, the Congress of the youth will fight on all burning issues in the interest of the country in the streets and bring this struggle to the people.”
Krishna Allavaru said that every IYC worker will fight against the dictatorial government in the coming days and strive to convey the ideology of the Congress party and the message of Rahul Gandhi to the people of the country.
At the meeting, IYC also adopted political and organizational resolutions. Also, organizational matters, internal elections, membership and all major issues including campaigning were discussed in detail.
“The serious issues facing the country, such as unemployment, rising inflation, the farmers’ problem, national security, the sale of the country’s properties, all these hot issues, and how to fight against the BJP government on these anti-people issues in the coming times have been discussed in detail,” read the IYC statement.
Earlier, Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee and Chhattisgarh Pradesh Congress Committee also passed similar resolutions demanding that Rahul Gandhi be made the party leader again.
Notably, Sonia Gandhi served as interim president of the Congress party.
The Congress party’s organizational elections were proposed by its Central Election Authority in May 2020, but later, due to the Assembly elections scheduled for the five states, it was proposed by members of the Congressional Working Committee (CWC) that the elections take place after the votes of the Assembly.
CWC members have authorized Acting President Sonia Gandhi to take a call on the schedule. (ANI)
