It was on December 11 last year when Rahul Gandhi took over the reigns from mother Sonia Gandhi as the new Congress President.
Though Rahul Gandhi has chaired CWC meetings in the past in the absence of his mother Sonia Gandhi, it will be for the first time that he will preside over it as Congress president.
She recalled how nervous she was "that my hands were shaking" 20 years ago when she made her first address as Congress President.
Rahul Gandhi on Saturday took over the reins of the Congress, signalling not just the coming of age of the heir apparent, but a generational change in the 132-year-old party.
Reaching out to the youth, he said as "it is stated that the Congress is a grand old party we will make it a grand old and young party... we will fight all hatred with love."
Rahul Gandhi took over as Congress President on Saturday, an elevation that comes at a time when the party faces an "existential crisis" and has huge electoral challenges in the run up to the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.
47-year-old Rahul Gandhi today took charge of the Congress in the presence of his mother and outgoing president Sonia Gandhi, sister Priyanka Gandhi-Vadra, her husband Robert Vadra, former prime minister Manmohan Singh and other senior party leaders.
