The Congress leader said that not only being Gandhi, but as the most outspoken leader fighting against the wrong policies of the Modi government, all the Congressmen want to see Rahul Gandhi again as the party president. The demand for Rahul Gandhi’s vigorous withdrawal has started arising after the party chief raised the issue of Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha MPs in July, as Sonia Gandhi has completed a year as interim president.

The Congress has also given full credit to Rahul for resolving the upheaval of Rajasthan. Surjewala said, it was possible due to the trust of Rahul Gandhi, in which Priyanka Gandhi also supported. The month-long upheaval in Rajasthan politics came to an end on Monday, when Sachin Pilot met Rahul and the Congress later assured that it would set up a panel to take cognizance of Pilot’s complaints.
Party General Secretary KC Venugopal said, Congress President Sonia Gandhi has decided that AICC will constitute a three-member committee to resolve the issues raised by Sachin Pilot and angry legislators.
Later, three senior leaders including Priyanka Gandhi and Ahmed Patel met with a group of rebel MLAs along with Sachin Pilot, who thanked Sonia Gandhi for her attention to their issues. After the meeting, the pilot said, I wanted our self-respect to remain intact. I have given 20 years to the party. We have always tried to ensure the participation of those who have worked hard to form the government.
