Rahul Gandhi gains support from 10 more Congress MPs

July 26, 2012 - New Delhi

Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi is getting more support from the Congress party leaders to be made the leader of Lok Sabha. Kalahandi constituency MP Bhakta Charan Das has written to Sonia Gandhi urging her to make Rahul the leader.

"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 the leader of Lok Sabha has been vacant since Pranab Mukherjee resigned to contest the Presidential elections.
