WBPCC passes resolution supporting Rahul Gandhi

Press Trust of India  |  Kolkata 

unanimously passed resolutions supporting vice-president Rahul Gandhi as the party's next president and authorised him and party president to select the next PCC president.

The state unit held its organizational during the day to elect the next state president and passed the two resolutions.

"We have unanimously passed a resolution supporting Congress vice-president as the next president of the party. And the second resolution is to authorize him and Congress president to select the next president of the Pradesh Congress committee. We have sent the copies of the resolution to our party high command," state Congress president and MP Adhir Chowdhury told reporters.

Congress central authority had last week held a review meeting with pradesh returning officials in on organisational polls at the conclusion of which Rahul Gandhi is likely to be elevated as party president.

Several names are doing the rounds in the state Congress circles as the next president of WBPCC and former state Congress president and MP Pradip Bhattacharya is way ahead of his rivals.

"At the national level TMC and Congress have a close coordination while fighting BJP and RSS. So keeping in mind the next Lok Sabha polls, Pradipda is the best choice as the next Congress president," a senior state Congress leader said on condition of anonymity.
