The Indian National Congress party is likely to call its All India Congress Committee (AICC) session as early as January next year to elect its new president, two senior party leaders said. At the INC Working Committee (CWC) meeting on 24 August, a section of the leaders had initially suggested that the session be held within a year, but party leader Rahul Gandhi and many others preferred holding it in the next six months. A January schedule for this mammoth organisational exercise suits the party, as there would be no major elections round the corner after this year’s Bihar assembly poll. In 2021, elections for five assemblies—Tamil Nadu, West Bengal, Kerala, Assam and Puducherry—are slated in April, providing enough time for the INC to come up with a rejigged team headed by a new leader.
