New Delhi, Oct 13 (PTI) Congress president Sonia Gandhi today indicated that the elevation of Rahul Gandhi as the party chief could be done “soon”.

“Soon it will be done,” she said, when asked by reporters repeatedly as to when Rahul Gandhi, who is at present the vice president of the party, will be elevated.

The Congress organisational polls are underway and many state units have already passed resolutions urging Rahul Gandhi to take over as the party reins.

Sources in the party say that Rahul could take over as the party chief from her mother after Diwali.
