Rahul Gandhi hints at playing proactive role in party
New delhi: Breaking his silence on the growing clamour in Congress, Rahul Gandhi on Thursday indicated he will play a proactive role and the decision on the timing will be taken by party president Sonia Gandhi and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
Rahul told NDTV that the option of playing a bigger role in the party and in the government was open.
His comments comes a day after Sonia had said that it was for Rahul to decide for himself on playing a larger role in the party.
“No one can take a decision on his behalf. He has to take a decision,” she had said in Parliament House on Wednesday.
These comments come against the backdrop of pleas made by senior Congress leaders like Digvijay Singh and Salman Khurshid for Rahul to play a larger role in the party.
