Sonia Gandhi’s elevation as the President by CWC was challenged by Jitendra Prasad which led to an election.Earlier there were speculations that Rahul Gandhi’s elevation has been put off but the sources inside Congress confirmed that no such decision had been taken.The CWC can also expect to look in the Gujarat elections but it would be peripheral. It is for this reason that agenda of the CWC has been kept open. Sonia Gandhi had been the longest serving President of the grand old Congress Party.
