Rahul Gandhi should lead Congress with a focus on crucial 2019 election : Kurshid

Shillong, Oct 7 (UNI) Veteran Congress leader Salman Khurshid today said that his party vice president Rahul Gandhi should take over
the party with a focus on the crucial 2019 Lok Sabha election.
“I can say that it is now objectively clear that the generational change in leadership is now on the anvil. It will happen,” Khurshid said while speaking to media persons today.
It may be mentioned that Rahul Gandhi's coronation as the Congress president by is expected by the end of this month.
“It will happen. Some of us think, and people whom you are quoting, they all think we need to put this new structure in place well before the next elections in 2019,” he said.
Mr Khurshid also said that the party is hopeful that he should take this decision (to lead the Congress) and announce his decision, and hoped that it happens soon.
Urging people not to speculate on when he will take over the mantle of the Congress, Mr Khurshid said, “He has something in his mind, and I think he’s working to a plan, and so as and when he makes up his mind, he discloses his plan to us, we will be there to support him. I personally think we should not speculate – when will he come, why will he come.”
Expressing his sadness the party men are leaving it while it is going through a difficult phase, Mr Kurshid said, ““My attitude is good riddance to bad rubbish. People who have got so much from the party, and all of us have received a lot from the party, and people who have got a lot from the party and when we hit upon difficult times will want to leave, I think it’s very sad.”
He said, “If someone felt disenchanted and felt that if the party was not doing things right and therefore wanted to withdraw from politics, he would have respected them. But instead of withdrawing they go and join the party that they have been critical of and have criticised for donkeys’ years, I find it unacceptable.” UNI RRK AKM
