The reluctant Rahul Gandhi has taken his first step on the Congress party’s national stage. He has been appointed as the chairman of the party’s six-member coordination committee for the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. However, the much anticipated reshuffle of the AICC’s organisational set-up is still being eagerly awaited.

The move is a follow-up of the party-government dialogue session last week and is accompanied by the setting up of three other sub-groups. However, the announcement late Thursday evening caught the party headquarters unawares, as the staff had called it a day.

The others on the committee are Ahmed Patel, Janardan Dwivedi, Digvijay Singh, Madhusudan Mistry and Jairam Ramesh.

The three other sub-groups also indicate the areas of concern for the party with an eye on the preparations for the elections. These include pre-poll alliances, preparation of manifesto and the government’s programme implementation, as well as communications and publicity.
