Mullappally Ramachandran, the chief of the Congresss central election authority, announced Gandhis election today, the last day for withdrawal of nominations, when the 47-year-old leader, who appeared to have lately undergone a transformation from the tentative to the assertive was busy canvassing for the party in Gujarat.
Since the withdrawal of date/time is over and as there is only one candidate (Rahul), as per Article XVII (d) of the constitution of the Indian National Congress, I hereby declare Shri Rahul Gandhi elected as president of the Indian National Congress, Ramachandran told a press conference.
I congratulate Rahul Ji on his election as Congress president. My best wishes for a fruitful tenure, Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted from his personal twitter handle @narendramodi. PTI
