Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) on Tuesday celebrated the elevation of Rahul Gandhi as the president of All India Congress Committee by distributing sweats, beating of drums and bursting firecrackers.

 The programme was led by JKPCC president here at party headquarters, Shaheedi Chowk .

While congratulating Rahul Gandhi on behalf of entire rank and file of congress cadres in the state, Mir said that, “we are all solidly behind the leadership of Rahul Gandhi and described that his uncontested election has proved that he is unchallenged leader of the party in the entire country”. 

 Mir also said that for quite some time the demands for elevation of Rahul Gandhi were emerging from the party cadres from different parts of the country, especially the younger leadership but Gandhi always maintained that he would prefer to come through the process of organizational elections.

“Process of organizational elections started with the membership drive and elections of booth level delegates upwards to PCC level were held in a transparent manner, by an independent body of the party monitoring the process throughout the country under the overall supervision of election commission and finally the delegates throughout the country expressed their unanimous choice in favor of Rahul Gandhi, as no one else came forward to contest or was proposed by the delegates as a candidate”, added Mir . 

Mir also said that Rahul Gandhi is leading the party from the front against all odds and challenges of time from past several years.

He also praised the leadership provided by Sonia Gandhi with the spirit of service and sacrifices during her long tenure as congress president and hope that her able and mature guidance would always be available to the party leadership and cadre.  

Prominent among others who spoke and attended the function included senior vice-president Sham Lal Sharma, CLP leader N Rigzin Jora, vice-presidents Raman Bhalla, Taj Mohi-ud-din, G.N.Monga, Vikar Rasool Wani, Kanta Bhan and many others.
