The delay in the search of the president has also raised questions from within the party. Senior leaders like Karan Singh had to make comments like the CWC meeting soon should be convened to announce the Congress chief.

Early a month after Congress president Rahul Gandhi lost the Amethi Lok Sabha seat in Uttar Pradesh to Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate Smriti Irani, posters calling for Punjab Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu's resignation appeared in Mohali, Punjab.

Narendra Modi is Prime Minister, Yogi ji is Chief Minister & Member of Parliament is from BJP (Smriti Irani). We have to do the work of opposition now. You know that the work of opposition is most enjoyable, it is easy. You now have to do the work of the opposition in Amethi

"I very happy after coming to Amethi. It feels like coming home," Rahul tweeted in Hindi soon after reaching his erstwhile Lok Sabha constituency.

Rahul Gandhi will be visiting Amethi for the first time after he lost out the party's bastion to Smriti Irani in this year's Lok Sabha elections.

As per the schedule, Gandhi will meet party workers at Gauriganj over a meal and will attend a program at Shiv Mahesh College.

Speaking to mediaA, Singh said he has not suggested any names for the posts. "I have not suggested any names. I did not want to mention any names as it will be a decision of the party as a whole," he said.

A day after Jyotiraditya Scindia resigned from the post of Congress' general secretary, posters emerged outside the party's state office in Bhopal, appealing to Rahul Gandhi to appoint Scindia as the next party president.

His resignation comes at a time when the party leaders from several states are offering their resignation as an expression of solidarity with Rahul Gandhi, who recently quit as the party president.
