Senior Congress leaders have allegedly said😯 that Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi is already running the party😏 amid rumours of Sonia Gandhi👩 stepping down. A close aide of Rahul Gandhi said🔈, "For all practical purposes, he is running the show now with Sonia confining herself to dealing with older allies and old-timers in the party. For the rest, he is the de facto chief". It was also said that political strategist🤔 Prashant Kishor, roped in to turn Congress’ fortunes around ahead of the 2017 UP and Punjab state elections🗳, reported to Rahul and not Sonia. Congress' opposition✊ to the GST bill is also Rahul's decision, according to party sources.
It looks like India's grand old party😳 is all set to hand over the reins to Rahul Gandhi with Priyanka Vadra set to be given a major role in Congress' campaign for the UP elections👍.
