Ashok Chavan, Former Chief Minister, Maharashtra :
- Leadership of the Gandhi-Nehru family is essential to keep the country and Congress united. They have been great custodians of the party and it has been proven many times in history. It is crucial that the party moves forward with this reality in mind.
- CWC will take appropriate decision about the post of Congress President, but the popular voice within the party suggests that Rahul Gandhi Ji should take charge as the President.
- Hon. Sonia Gandhi Ji has worked tirelessly to lead & uphold the values of the Congress party in strenuous times. Under her esteemed leadership & guidance, the UPA government has taken many important decisions to provide justice & safeguard the rights of common man.
- I am fully confident that Hon. Soniaji Gandhi will take appropriate decision about the future course of the Congress, which will be accepted unanimously by all the party workers.
