Rahul buzz: Wait for the news till evening, say Congressmen

January 19, 2013 14:17 IST

"Wait for the news till evening" -- that was all that those taking part in the Congress Chintan Shivir were willing to say when scores of media persons quizzed them on speculations on Rahul Gandhi's elevation to play a larger role in the run up to the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. 

Minister of State for HRD Shashi Tharoor, Uttarakhand Chief Minister Vijay Bahuguna, MP Priya Dutt and many others have told media persons that all participants had put forth the demand that 'Rahul should lead the party in the 2014 election campaign'.

It is becoming clear that Congress party's Chintan Shivir is more about projection of Rahul.

Now, all eyes are on the Congress Working Committee, scheduled to take place at 6.30 pm on Saturday.
