If party sources are to be believed, Rahul Gandhi will take over in January when the AICC meeting would be held. The party workers will 'unanimously elect' him to the top post once again. Giving an indication of this, a senior member of Rahul's coterie said that Rahul's return is inevitable. "The country needs his leadership at this critical hour. His resignation in July this year was an emotional response and he should return to take reins of the party," he said.
Sonia Gandhi's ailment and her inability to focus on party's affairs due to health reasons are the chief reasons for the return of Rahul Gandhi. So, starting from January, Rahul Gandhi might be more active in the party affairs.
