After Tharoor, Amarinder Singh Backs Priyanka For Congress President; Calls Her “Excellent Choice”
Voices within the Congress party supporting Priyanka Gandhi's name for the next president of the party are growing stronger, with senior leaders like Shashi Tharoor and Amarinder Singh pitching for her.
As per Singh, Priyanaka would be an “excellent choice” for the next Congress president who would enjoy all-round support.
Earlier, senior Congres leader Shashi Tharoor in an interview with news agency PTI had said Priyanka would be a good choice for being chosen as party president.
Concurring with Tharoor, Singh tweeted: “Agree with Shashi Tharoor that her natural charisma would galvanise & rally the workers and voters alike. Hope the CWC decides on it soon.”

His statement comes days after he batted for a young leader to take charge of the party at this critical juncture in the nation's journey.
Earlier in Chandigarh, when Capatain Amarinder’s reaction to Shashi Tharoor’s statement was sought, he had reitereated the same thing. He said "Priyanka will be a perfect choice to take over the party reins but it will all depend on the Congress Working Committee (CWC), which alone is authorised to take a decision in the matter.”
However, he regretted the decision of Rahul Gandhi to step down from the top party post.
"India is a young nation, and will respond to a young leader,” he said.
