Congress VP Rahul Gandhi accidentally enters ladies toilet in Gujarat

It seems like Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi has taken the Women empowerment quite seriously.

State presidents of the Congress party will be asked to file nomination papers for the post of president either in state capitals or at the Congress headquarters.

Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Friday cleared the air regarding party vice president and his son Rahul Gandhi's elevation and said he will soon take over as Congress chief.

"You have been asking this for so many years and it's now happening", Sonia said, smiling, pointing at Rahul, according to NDTV.

"Organisational elections of the Congress are underway and the new president could take over shortly after Diwali".

After Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath made an appearance at BJP's Janaraksha Yatra in Kerala on October 4, he will once again be leaving his state to campaign for the BJP, this time in poll-bound Gujarat. The All India Congress Committee, however, plans to complete the process by the end of this month.

Rahul Gandhi, 47, has been the Congress vice president since 2013 and has been assisting his 70-year-old mother Sonia Gandhi, who heads the party. He termed it a positive move that would help the party in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.Thereafter, former chief minister Harish Rawat also brought to a resolution to give responsibility to AICC chief Sonia Gandhi to formally announce Pritam Singh as the elected Uttarakhand Pradesh Congress chief.

This is the first time when Congress leaders from UP have passed any such resolution for promoting the charge to the Congress vice-president.

Senior Congres leader Veerappa Moily also praised Rahul, saying he has given "excellent hope" for the party.
