The Gujarat Unity of Congress on Sunday urged the national leadership of the party to make Rahul Gandhi the chairman of the big old party. The request came on the heels of Congress units in Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh, the only two states where the party is alone in government, passing resolutions for Rahul Gandhi to be named party leader. In Gujarat, the request was made during the party’s state executive committee meeting held here, where all its members supported the proposal with a round of applause.

”Members of Gujarat’s executive committee, who gathered here in a meeting, expressed their sentiment that Gandhi should be appointed President of the Indian National Congress. They wanted this point to be presented to the national leadership,” said the party’s chief state unity spokesman, Manish Doshi.

In a statement released later, the party said: “It was requested (during the meeting) that the respected Rahul Gandhi, who is the future of India and the voice of the youth, be appointed Chairman of the Indian National Congress To this, all the state executive delegates present expressed their approval with thunderous applause.

Meanwhile, Doshi said that the party’s Gujarat unit also passed a resolution authorizing the party’s acting chairwoman, Sonia Gandhi, to form the executive body of the Gujarat Congress.

Gujarat Unity has also decided to win 125 out of 182 Assembly seats in the upcoming state elections under the leadership of State Congress Speaker Jagdish Thakor. Elections in the Bharatiya Janata Party-ruled state are expected to take place by the end of this year. Speaking to reporters, Thakor said, the state unit has drawn up a campaign plan which includes the distribution of 1.5 crore pamphlets containing eight promises made by Rahul Gandhi and the four point failures of the BJP government. A resolution empowering Sonia Gandhi for the formation of the Gujarat Pradesh organization was also passed unanimously, he said.

”A total of 1.55 crore ‘citizens’ rights pamphlets’ targeting 300 homes in each booth will be distributed between September 24-26 by Congress workers and leaders and the entire organization on 52,000 stalls. The pamphlets will include promises made by Rahul Gandhi and highlight the failure of the current BJP government on four counts,” he said.

In a statement, the party said its state unit had also drawn up daily programs until Diwali to highlight the failure of the ruling BJP “which led to inflation, unemployment, clumsy administration, to corruption and the ruin of the economy”. The party will also support groups that have campaigned against the government. Dates for gatherings with 75 motorcycles will be set in each taluka for mass public relations. Various schedules will also be decided during the nine days of Navratri to offer prayers to the Goddess, he said.

The party also decided to make arrangements to accommodate the agitators who gathered in the state capital, Gandhinagar, from all parts of Gujarat to lobby for their demands with the government, he said. Congressional deputies’ quarters will be made available to them, he said.
