Rahul Gandhi may take over as Congress president soon after Diwali, says Sachin Pilot

Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi has scheduled visit to Amethi from 4-6 October. His visit comes ahead of BJP president Amit Shah’s visit to Amethi on 10 October

Rahul Gandhi is likely to take over as the Congress president after Diwali, says party's Rajasthan unit chief Sachin Pilot.

"There will be great inconvenience in maintaining peace and law and order during MP Rahul Gandhi's tour".

He also shared the letter signed by District Magistrate Kumar and Superintendent of Police Poonam that requested Rahul Gandhi to postpone his visit.

The Congress leader, who was earlier denied permission to visit Amethi, would also be given protection by the district administration during his scheduled visit. Often dubbed as a "reluctant politician" - though Rahul had during his recent conversation with students at the University of California, Berkeley said that these rumours are spread by BJP trolls - the Congress vice president had himself said during his recent visit that he ready to take on the new role and qualified his remark by asserting that the party would follow a democratic process to do this. Singh said that the government was afraid of Rahul's visit as they fear that he might during his direct interaction with the public may raise issues that are against the ruling BJP.

BJP sources said that a slew of developmental projects would be announced during Shah's visit.

However, the state government retracted on the issue after the Congress made a hue and cry and said that Rahul would not defer his visit.

The general sentiment in the Congress is that it is time for Gandhi to take charge and lead from the front, Pilot said in an interview to PTI. The party alleged that BJP wanted Rahul to come after Amit Shah and hence were making an excuse of not being able to provide adequate securing asking him to postpone the trip.

The organisational polls of Congress are now underway, Pilot said, adding that the grass-root level cadres have appealed the party to cause no further delay in Rahul's elevation to the top post.

"He (Rahul) will be arriving here as per his schedule on October 4 and the administration will be responsible for his security", Mishra said.

Ms Irani had unsuccessfully contested the 2014 Lok Sabha election from Amethi against Mr Gandhi.

According to media reports, the district administration in its statement said, it has no problem if the Amethi parliamentarian visits his constituency.
