New Delhi, May 19 (ANI): Union Commerce and Industry Minister Anand Sharma on Wednesday said that Congress President Sonia Gandhi would take a decision on his renomination to the Rajya Sabha.

"This is the prerogative of the Congress President. Whatever is the decision in this matter, it has to be taken by her and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh," said Sharma.

Sharma, whose Rajya Sabha term came to an end in April, has to be re-elected as a Member of Parliament by October.

It has been reported that Sharma could be nominated from Haryana, as the party has no strength to elect even a single member to the Rajya Sabha from his native state Himachal Pradesh.

"I have approached my responsibility acknowledging the confidence imposed in me" by the Congress President and the Prime Minister," said Sharma. (ANI)
