Ten Congress MPs ask Sonia to pick Rahul as next Lok Sabha Leader

Rahul Gandhi

Pushing for Rahul Gandhi’s active role in Parliament, 10 Congress MPs have written to party chief Sonia Gandhi suggesting his appointment as the Leader of the Lok Sabha, saying it was the “need of the hour” to create a “sense of confidence” among the countrymen.

“We think it is the need of the hour that Rahul should play a larger and proactive role in Parliament as the party is facing many challenges inside and outside Parliament…There indeed are many leaders but our country with nearly 50 per cent youth population demands for a young and dynamic leader. And over these years, Rahul has emerged as the most accepted youth leader in this country…he can attract youth and common masses which will pave way for better results for our party,”

The post of Leader of the House in the lower house fell vacant after Pranab Mukherjee was nominated by UPA as its Presidential candidate.
