Congress workers congratulate Rahul
New Delhi, Dec 19: A day after Parliament passed the Lokpal Bill, hundreds of Congress workers led by senior party leaders on Thursday met party Vice-President Rahul Gandhi to greet him for his role in getting the anti-corruption measure become reality.

Outgoing Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, newly- appointed PCC chief Arvinder Singh Lovely and his immediate predecessor in that post, JP Agarwal, were accompanied by the newly-elected eight Congress MLAs and former Delhi ministers as they called on Rahul.

Senior party leader from Delhi, Jaikishan, said that the party workers had come to congratulate Rahul for the "key role" he had played in the passage of the anti-corruption law, which had been pending for decades.

Security personnel had a tough time in controlling the Congress workers as they chanted slogans hailing Rahul and jostled to meet him.

Rahul Gandhi had earlier this week urged all the political parties to come together for the passing of the Lokpal Bill in the Rajya Sabha.
