Rahul Gandhi has no issue about meeting those senior Congress leaders who have reservations about his leadership, AICC said on Thursday hours after the party Vice President returned from his nearly two-month sabbatical.

Giving clear indications that a number of public engagements have been lined up for the Congress Vice President, party spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said Rahul would be speaking to both leaders of Congress party and media whom he would tell about his vision and strategy.

The party, however, refused to divulge the names of places where Rahul visited during his sabbatical saying it was “not important”. There were speculations that Rahul was in Myanmar.

Amid talk that Rahul could be made party chief sooner than later, the party also made it known that a meeting of Congress Working Committee followed by an AICC session would be held soon.

Surjewala, who is communication department in-charge of the AICC said, “Rahul ji is a very seasoned, mature leader and every congressman is always welcome to meet him. Rahul ji has always met any body who wants to meet him without inhibition”.

He was asked whether Rahul would be ready to meet leaders like Amarinder Singh, Sheila Dikshit and Sandeep Dikshit who have underlined the need for continuance of Sonia Gandhi as the party chief and had expressed reservations over Rahul occupying the top slot.

Replying to questions, Surjewala said Congress would intensify its agitation on the land acquisition bill issue with the farmer’s rally on April 19.

“Beginning with farmer’s rally at the Ram Lila grounds, Congress will carry this fight vigorously and with utmost vigour from Parliament to small towns and villages in the country”, he said.
