Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah today wished success to Rahul Gandhi as he prepares to take over the reins of the Congress party.

"As @OfficeOfRG files his nomination to take over the Grand Old Party of India, I wish him all the very best going ahead. Expectations are high, challenges are numerous & I pray for his success," Omar tweeted.

In an apparent reference to the BJP criticising Gandhi's expected elevation to the top post in the Congress party, Omar said, "On a lighter note, this is how we choose our leaders for our parties - we arm wrestle for the post. I'm off to the gym now".

Gandhi today filed his nomination papers for the post of Congress president, paving the way for a generational shift in the leadership of the party headed by his mother Sonia Gandhi.
