Rahul Gandhi takes over India's opposition Congress celebration

Newly-elected Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Sunday shed light on the objectives of Congress party under his leadership and said in an interview to the National Herald that he would usher the party towards greater democratisation and introduce new faces in the party.

At an event in Pratapgarh district, Shrichand Kriplani, minister for urban development and housing in Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje's government, paid Rahul Gandhi several backhanded compliments, including this one: Rahul is the BJP's star campaigner.

"This vision belongs to a time where people did not have the rights and freedoms that have made our country the profound entity it is - a time when people did not have voice, did not have the right to dissent, to disagree, to differ, to be", he said.

Sidelined BJP leader Shatrughan Sinha on Saturday congratulated Rahul Gandhi on becoming the new Congress president and expressed hope that India's oldest political party will usher in a new era under the latter's leadership. "Mr Rahul Gandhi called upon India's youth to defend our idea of India, and I am sure the young will respond", Chidambaram tweeted. Both Congress and the CPI-M have denounced Modi's Hindu chauvinist BJP government as fascist. Hinting at major changes in the party, the 47-year-old said, "There is lot of work that Congress has to do".

Meeting this challenge was not the achievement of one individual but the continued efforts of all of you. Expertise, experience and knowledge can be cast aside for personal glory.

Sonia Gandhi, 70, who steered the party through turbulent times for 19 years, her daughter Priyanka Vadra, and son-in-law Robert Vadra and former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh joined the top Congress leadership at the ceremony marked by loud celebrations as scores of Rahul Gandhi supporters danced to the beat of drums, raised slogans, burst firecrackers and distributed candies outside the party office here.
