Nation First News: The Congress Working Committee (CWC) on Saturday named UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi as party’s interim chief.
Following the meeting held at the party headquarters today, the party’s 54-member apex body had decided to appoint Sonia Gandhi as new interim president for Congress party.
