Give more responsibility to Rahul: HPCC
Shimla, May 12 (UNI) The Himachal Pradesh Congress today urged AICC President Sonia Gandhi to give more responsibility to Rahul Gandhi and said he should be given the leadership of a frontal organisation after managing the Rae Bareli by-polls exceedingly well.
Addressing a press conference here, Himachal Pradesh Congress Committee (HPCC) General Secretary Kuldeep Rathore said all the five MPs from the state and HPCC President Viplove Thakur today met the party president and requested her to give some top post to Rahul Gandhi.
He said Rahul who spearheaded Ms Gandhi's election campaign in Rae Bareli had proved his leadership qualities beyond doubt and it was the right time to put him in the forefront to guide the party and inspire them.
The report of the committee set up by the HPCC to probe the NSUI debacle in college and university elections in student union polls last year had also been submitted to the central leadership, he said.
Mr Rathore said the HPCC has also urged the party high command to strictly abide by the age limit for office bearers of Youth Congress and NSUI.
