Rahul files nomination for Congress President post

Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi today filed his nomination papers for the party's chief post. The 47-year-old is likely to emerge as the lone candidate in the fray and decks have been cleared for his election as the Congress president. If elected he would succeed his mother Sonia Gandhi, who has held the post for 19 consecutive years. Present Congress president Sonia Gandhi and former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh are among the proposers for the candidature of Rahul Gandhi for the party chief's post.
