The chief of Congress' women wing has said the "time has come" for party vice-president Rahul Gandhi to take over the mantle of the organisation from his mother Sonia Gandhi.
Sushmita Dev, president of the All India Mahila Congress (AIMC), said Rahul Gandhi should lead from the front and take over as chief of the main opposition party.
"I am a strong supporter of Gandhi and the AIMC wants him to take charge as president of the party. The time has come for this to happen," Dev told PTI here yesterday.
"Congress president (Sonia Gandhi) has already written a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to get the bill passed in the Lok Sabha, where the BJP enjoys a majority," she said.
