Sonia Congress chief for 6 more months: Non-Gandhi leader rejected?

The Indian National Congress party's marathon meeting on August 24 was held in the backdrop of a storm kicked up by a letter from over 20 senior leaders.

The authors of the letter sought major organisational overhaul, especially at leadership levels, and decentralisation of power.

However, they came under fire at the meeting, particularly over the fact that the letter was 'leaked' in the public domain.

The party's top body has now decided to continue with Sonia Gandhi as 'interim' chief until an All India Congress Committee session is held within six months, possibly to elect a permanent President.

Is this a signal that the party leadership is not in favour of a non-Gandhi at the helm?

Or is the door still open for other leaders to assume the reins?
