Rahul-Gandhi-10Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi will lead the party’s 2014 poll campaign.

“This meeting of CWC declares that the 2014 election campaign will be led by Rahul Gandhi,” party spokesperson Janardan Dwivedi said.

While several Congress Working Committee (CWC) members were keen that Gandhi be anointed the party’s prime ministerial candidate, Congress chief Sonia Gandhi intervened to say that it was not the tradition of the party to declare the candidate.

She said Rahul Gandhi would lead the party campaign for 2014, Dwivedi told reporters after the CWC meet.
