big_262506_1358679066NEW DELHI : Two months after formally taking charge as the Congress President, Rahul Gandhi has started to give final shape to his team. The Congress Working Committee (CWC), highest decision making body in the party, appointed by Sonia Gandhi has been dissolved and the process to select a new one has been set into motion.
The 34-member steering committee, including Rahul, his mother and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi, former PM Manmohan Singh and the party’s general secretaries, will meet on Saturday.DWJlh1YV4AItoys

The steering committee also includes senior leaders AK Antony, Ahmed Patel, Digvijay Singh, Ghulam Nabi Azad, Ambika Soni, Dwivedi, Ashok Gehlot, Sushil Kumar Shinde, P Chidambaram, Oscar Fernandes, Anand Sharma and All India Congress Committee (AICC) chief spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala.

The plenary session, likely to be held before parliament meets on March 5, 2018, may ratify Rahul’s elevation as president of the grand old party, a party leader said.
Congress has set up a separate wing to tap people among working professionals, a data analytic center and a research team for real time feed-back. Rahul’s big focus is the Lok Sabha polls but the challenge before that would be to wrest victory in key states like Karnataka, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh.(With Agency Inputs ).
