CWC set to meet tomorrow

It will meet around 10.30 am at Congress president Sonia Gandhi's residence.

"Prime Minister Narendra Modi fears the transformed image of Rahul Gandhi due to which the BJP is raking up issues such as Bofors against the Gandhi family to defame them", Mr Pawar alleged while interacting with party workers at Chandrapur in east Maharashtra.

The elevation of Rahul Gandhi as Congress president is finally on the cards after several missed deadlines, with the Congress Working Committee expected to approve on Monday an election schedule that will culminate in a generational change by the first week of December.

The Sunday Express quotes a senior leader saying that Rahul Gandhi could take over by the end of November itself.

Sources also said that Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi would be elevated as the President of the Congress before 5th of December. The closed-door meeting of the CWC will be chaired by current Congress president Sonia Gandhi, who has been held the post for 19 years.

The group said it was "committed to protecting women and children from similar acts of sexual misconduct". Kayla Moore rallied support for her husband, Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore .

Sources said she would remain a figurehead and could continue as chairperson of the Congress Parliamentary Party.

Once the schedule for the election is approved by the CWC, the party's Central Election Authority will notify the same.

"If only one nomination is filed, it will be announced on date of withdrawal of nominations that he is the president since there is no other nomination", NDTV quoted Congress leader Janardhan Dwivedi as saying on Saturday.

Pradesh Congress Committees and frontal organisations have also unanimously passed resolutions announcing that Rahul should be made the party president.

Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi is all set to take over the party's reins in early December, days before Gujarat goes to polls in two stages.
