Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi wants 50 per cent women representation in AICC to contest the 2014 Lok Sabha polls. He observed that the presence of women is less in Congress and it should be increased in the coming two-three years.
While interacting with newly-appointed party office bearers, Rahul focused on more women representation in the party. Particularly, they should hold key portfolios like secretary and general secretary in the party and they should be given more responsibilities.
Rahul did not spare a chance to remind the party leaders over the recent Cabinet reshuffle that youths should move forward by respecting seniors and get some tips.
It can be noted that the Gandhi scion focused more on the 50% quota for women in the party instead of talking about the women reservation in politics.
