CWC decides to let Sonia Gandhi continue as President of the Congress

CWC Congress

Congress’s top decision-making body ‘Congress Working Committee ‘ (CWC) had a meeting on Sunday, days after the Congress’s election fiasco. The meeting’s agenda was to decide strategies and reforms amid the party’s dwindling electoral performances.  The congress lost to Aam Aadmi Party in Punjab and the party had poor performance in other states as well.  After a four and half-hour-long meeting, the CWC came to a decision of letting Sonia Gandhi be the party president.

Detailed discussion was held about the five state’s elections. We discussed  how to take things forward and how we prepare for the forthcoming elections.”

Sonia Gandhi took over the party’s presidentship but she also offered to resign after facing strong criticism by a few G-23 leaders.  DK Shivakumar, Karnataka Congress president also supported the idea of making Rahul Gandhi the party’s president by taking a stand on Twitter.  “As I have said earlier as well, Rahul Gandhi should take up the Congress presidency in a full-time role immediately. This is the wish of millions of Congress workers like me,” he tweeted
