Five things Sonia Gandhi said during Congress Working Committee meet speech

Today, the president of the Congress party Sonia Gandhi summoned the meeting of Congress Working Committee to lay a foundation for Rahul Gandhi as the President.

Hours after Congress President Sonia Gandhi accused the BJP-led NDA Government of "sabotaging" the Winter Session of Parliament, Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley responded with equal vigour, saying the main Opposition party had delayed the Parliament sittings on numerous occasions in the past. In the meeting, held at Sonia Gandhi's residence, the committee passed a resolution and decided the date to be 19th December. Rumours are rife that Rahul is set to be the only candidate in fray and while his appointment as the party president is imminent, it is the dilemma of its timing that appears to have caught the Congress in a fix.

Sonia Gandhi will reportedly step down as party president and continue to serve as chairperson. He said Congress under Rahul had lost polls at all levels and BJP did not see him as a challenge.

The election will be notified on December 1, and the last date for filing nominations is December 4.

Jared Kushner Turns Over Documents to Special Counsel Robert Mueller
During the 2016 Trump presidential campaign, Kushner helped develop and run Trump's digital media strategy. Those decisions led to Mueller taking over the investigation after being appointed as special counsel.

Party sources had then indicated that this was likely to pave the way for Gandhi to take over as the President of the party at the earliest.

However, Rahul's elevation will put an end to criticism that the Congress was falling in confusion between the two power centres though leaders had maintained that the combination of mature and youthful leadership was an ideal solution that had put them in a comfortable position.

The Modi government is also forcefully trying to change the history of modern India by systematically erasing the contributions made by Pandit Nehruji and Indira Gandhi - be it through rewriting school textbooks, through malicious misinformation and propaganda, or ignoring with disdain the importance of the birth centenary of Indiraji, she said. Her role will be defined once Rahulji is elected the Congress President.

PAAS leader Hardik Patel even cancelled his rally in Rajkot where he was expected to announce a possible alliance with the Congress. "The Modi-government in its arrogance has cast a dark shadow on India' Parliamentary democracy by sabotaging the winter session of Parliament on flimsy grounds", Gandhi said at the CWC meeting.
