Congress leader Rahul Gandhi arrived in Rajasthan's Udaipur on Friday morning to attend the party's three-day Nav Sankalp Chintan Shivir.

Rahul Gandhi left for Udaipur from Delhi by train on Thursday.

Congress is going to hold a 'Chintan Shivir' in Udaipur under the leadership of its interim president Sonia Gandhi to hold discussions on party organisation, and to formulate a strategy to challenge the Bharatiya Janata Party in the upcoming 2024 general elections.

The top leaders demanded that Rahul Gandhi should take over the post of Congress president in the Congress Working Committee (CWC) meeting held on March 14.

In the meeting, senior Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury told Wayanad MP that he should accept the post of president, according to sources.

Sources further informed, "Rahul is ready to consider the post. After this, a proposal came in the meeting to hold the election of the president of August-September. However, it was then decided that the ongoing process cannot be preponed."

After the defeat in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, Rahul Gandhi resigned from the post of Congress president and Sonia Gandhi turned up to become the party's interim president.   -- ANI
