A special resolution demanding the induction of Rahul Gandhi in the Congress Working Committee (CWC) was moved at the party's plenary on Sunday.

Congress delegates from Rae Bareli, Amethi and Sultanpur in Uttar Pradesh moved a special resolution urging party president Sonia Gandhi to announce her son's induction into the party's highest decision-making body.

They demanded that Rahul Gandhi, a member of the Lok Sabha from Amethi, be given special responsibility in the party.

"The youth which forms the majority of population (almost 60 per cent) is getting impatient to shoulder the responsibilities and take the policies and programs of the government and the party to the masses. The youth is eagerly waiting for new responsibility to be entrusted to them," said the resolution.

It claimed that the youth had accepted Rahul Gandhi as their undisputed leader. "Youth identified himself with Rahul Gandhi for his knowledge, sincerity, commitment and deliverance," said the resolution.
