Amid controversy over Rahul Gandhi's leave during the budget session and demands in the party that he be elevated, party president Sonia Gandhi on Thursday said that everyone will get to know when such a decision is taken.

"When he will be made the president of the party, you will be informed," she told reporters in New Delhi.

Rahul Gandhi, Congress vice-president, is on a few week's leave during the budget session of Parliament to reflect and chart a course for the future of the party which has suffered a series of electoral reverses. The move has drawn critical remarks from the party's rivals.

There has been a demand in the Congress that Rahul Gandhi should take over as the party president and implement his road map for the party.

Party MP and former Union minister Kamal Nath said in an interview on Wednesday that Rahul Gandhi should be made party chief. Party general secretary Digvijaya Singh has also said that Rahul Gandhi should take full responsibility for the party.
