Indian National Congress (INC) interim president Sonia Gandhi will continue to lead the party until the election for the post of president is held, the Congress Working Committee (CWC) decided on Sunday.

The CWC met on Sunday to discuss INC’s poor outing in the recently concluded assembly elections in five states. Addressing the media after the meeting, spokesperson KC Venugopal said the CWC has expressed faith in the leadership of Sonia Gandhi.

Venugopal said the INC’s loss in the five state elections was “serious” and the party has decided on several corrective measures which would be swiftly implemented.

Venugopal said the party will organise a “chintan shivir” after the Parliament session and the CWC will meet again before it to take up some “organisational changes”.

spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said the party will fully prepare to face electoral challenges in the upcoming state assembly polls and the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.

Surjewala also acknowledged that “every party worker wants Rahul Gandhi to lead the party”. However, the new party president will be chosen at the next Congress election, he stated.

leader Mallikarjun Kharge said that Sonia Gandhi will lead them and will take future steps. “We all have faith in her leadership,” ANI quoted him as saying.

Ahead of a CWC meeting today, workers were seen raising slogans in support of Rahul Gandhi outside 10 Janpath.

Besides party workers, senior leaders also pitched for Rahul Gandhi’s return as INC chief. Karnataka Congress president DK Shivakumar said in a tweet, “As I have said it 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.”

Youth Congress chief Srinivas BV said the Gandhi family is the thread that binds together not only the Congress but all sections of the and it is not dependent on any electoral victory or defeat.

After INC’s defeat in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, Rahul Gandhi had resigned as INC president. Sonia Gandhi then took over the reins of the party again as the interim president and continues to hold the position as the president’s election keep getting delayed.

According to sources, Sonia Gandhi said in the CWC meeting that some people feel that the party is weakening because of the Gandhi family. “If you guys think so, then we are ready to make any kind of sacrifice,” Sonia Gandhi reportedly said.
