A new Government headed by Sonia Gandhi will be sworn in on May 19.
Emerging out of the AICC headquarters after meeting the Congress President, CPI General Secertary AB Bardhan told reporters that Gandhi "will take oath of office on May 19."
Countering rumours about the Prime Ministerial candidate, Bardhan said a government headed by Gandhi "will be sworn in on that day."
RJD Chief Laloo Prasad Yadav and senior Congress leader Pranab Mukherjee also lambasted "those spreading rumours" and asserted that it was clear that the new government would be led by Sonia Gandhi. "There is no scope for any rumours now," Mukherjee said.
The Rashtrapati Bhavan is gearing itself up for the occasion and all the necessary formalities have been completed, official sources said.
Ashoka Hall as well as the forecourt of the Rashtrapati Bhavan are being prepared for the function.
