Congress authorises Rahul to choose his own working committee team
The Congress unanimously passed a resolution at its plenary session on Sunday, authorising party president Rahul Gandhi to choose members of the new working committee.
Senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad moved a resolution, proposing that the new party chief selects his own team of the working committee - the highest decision-making body of the party.
Azad earlier asked the delegates whether there should be an election for the working committee, an idea which was outrightly rejected by them.
The Congress president will have to set up a CWC in place of the steering committee which was formed after the working committee was dissolved by him.
The working committee will be established after the plenary session.
