Rahul Gandhi could take over as the president of the Congress party soon after Diwali this year, party MP Sachin Pilot said today in an interview with news agency Press Trust of India (PTI).

Pilot's views have been shared by another Rahul aide, former south Mumbai MP, Milind Deora who was also part of the party delegation that accompanied the Congress president last month for his much-publicised visit to the United States.

Further taking a specific jibe at the rival BJP, Pilot added, "We will not form a margdarshak mandal to humiliate the senior leaders of of our party". Earlier too, we never said "no".

Gandhi is scheduled to visit Amethi from October 4 to 6.

Mr Singh added that the Yogi government was perhaps anxious that mr Gandhi's schedule might "eclipse" the proposed visit by BJP chief Amit Shah and Union ministers Smriti Irani and Nitin Gadkari to Amethi on October 10. Instead, the letter said, the member of parliament was apprised of the inconvenience being faced in maintaining law and order and providing him safety and security during the visit. Singhvi asked. He added the Amethi district administration had later "admitted to its mistake" in this case.

Rams continue strong start, rally past Cowboys 35-30
All they had against the Cardinals was one three-and-out possession totaling 3 yards as the defense struggled as well. In four games, the Rams have already scored 142 points, showing off a 37 point differential in the scoring as well.

Refuting the grounds on which the authorities have asked the Congress vice-president to reschedule his visit, Mr Singh told PTI that by October 4, nearly all the festivities would be over.

To a question on Shah's reported remarks that the Gujarat assembly polls would be held in the first week of December this year, Singhvi said his party had no such formal information about the schedule of the election. "Rahul Gandhiji has already answered such cheap jokes in his recent USA trip", he added.

According to the official sources here on Sunday, Amethi district magistrate has written to the SPG director general expressing his inability to provide adequate security to Rahul if he went ahead with his scheduled visit as the police force would be busy with immersion of Durga idols and Moharram till Friday. "It has been something that has been in the pipeline for a long time". The Gandhi confidant had also said the last names of leaders should not be treated as a disqualification in politics.

"The performance of a leader decides his worth", Pilot said.
