The Congress on Tuesday said 89 nominations were received to propose its Vice-President Rahul Gandhi’s name for the next president of the party. With nobody else filing nomination papers, Gandhi became the de facto leader of his party. Some, including a former adviser to senior BJP leader L K Advani, tweeted their best wishes to the “Prime Minister of India in 2019”. Gandhi, however, had to cancel three of his public meetings in Gujarat because of inclement weather.
