Rahul Gandhi attends Congress Working Committee meetingNovember 14th, 2007 - 10:16 am ICT by admin
“Of course suggestions have been made and they will be considered at an appropriate time,” said Veerappa Moily, a CWC member.
Besides Rahul, two other new members Prithviraj Chavan and Kishore Chandra Deo also attended the meeting.
Rahul, the Lok Sabha MP from Amethi, was nominated as one of the Congress party’s general secretaries in September.
Thirty-seven-year-old Rahul’s mother, Sonia, heads the party.
Rahul entered Parliament after contesting the polls from Amethi in Uttar Pradesh, but since then, he has largely remained on the sidelines, saying he first needed to learn to serve the party better.
The Congress Working Committee (CWC), the party’s top decision making body, met ahead of the winter session of Parliament, which opens on November 15.
The meeting was chaired by Sonia Gandhi, and it cleared four proposals, including a political and a economic resolution for the upcoming plenary session.
Besides, the committee decided to amend the party’s Constitution and re-introduce single category membership.
Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh was also present during the hour-long meeting.
A meeting of the All India Congress Committee (AICC) will be held on November 17. (ANI)
