LUC­KNOW: The Ut­tar Pradesh Con­gress Com­mit­tee (UPCC) on Thurs­day unan­i­mously de­manded the el­e­va­tion of Con­gress vice pres­i­dent Rahul Gandhi as the party chief.

A res­o­lu­tion to this ef­fect was moved by the party’s state unit chief Raj Bab­bar and en­dorsed al­most im­me­di­ately by del­e­gates, district and city unit of­fice-bear­ers at UPCC head­quar­ters here. The par­ty­men raised slo­gans in favour of Rahul and hoped that he would soon step into the shoes of his mother So­nia Gandhi.

“Rahul has been speak­ing about up­hold­ing demo­cratic val­ues. We all have re­quested him to as­sume the role of Con­gress pres­i­dent. We are hop­ing that he will do so as early as pos­si­ble,” said Bab­bar. “UPCC head­quar­ters wit­nessed a great frenzy as the res­o­lu­tion was moved,” said Bab­bar. Se­nior party leader Ram Kr­ishna Dwivedi moved an­other res­o­lu­tion au­tho­ris­ing AICC pres­i­dent to ap­point UPCC pres­i­dent and nom­i­nate new AICC mem­bers from Ut­tar Pradesh.

A Con­gress leader said party MP Sanjay Singh, MLA Aradhna Mishra and MLC Deepak Singh sec­onded both the res­o­lu­tions that were passed in pres­ence of re­turn­ing of­fi­cer Kishor Upadhyay and other se­nior lead­ers.
