Rahul Gandhi is set for a bigger role but when it will happen, will be decided by Congress President Sonia Gandhi, the party said on Tuesday.
“There is no suspense about it. He has a role, which is increasing constantly. In natural course, his role will go on increasing,” said party general secretary Janardan Dwivedi in the backdrop of speculation that the young leader could be made working president in a month or two.
“This is what Congressmen want and this is what in their opinion is natural. There is no doubt about it that Congressmen want his role to increase,” Dwivedi, who is also the media department chief of the party, told media persons.
He was responding to questions about speculation in media that Rahul may be appointed working president of the party on November 19, Indira Gandhi’s birth anniversary.Agencies
