Rahul Gandhi, who was elected as the Congress president, on Monday night thanked PM Narendra Modi for his wishes.
"Thank you for your good wishes Modi ji", the Gandhi scion said after PM Modi congratulated him on his election as the new Congress president and wished him a fruitful tenure. "I congratulate Rahul Ji on his election as Congress President. My best wishes for a fruitful tenure," Modi had tweeted.
The 47-year-old scion of the Nehru-Gandhi family was the lone candidate in the fray. He is likely to formally take over the reins of the party on December 16.
Rahul Gandhi succeeds his mother Sonia Gandhi, who occupied the post for 19 years.
PM Modi has been regularly mocking Gandhi, calling his elevation to head the Congress party as dynastic politics and a redux of "Aurangzeb raj"
