Former union minister and hockey Olympian Aslam Sher Khan has offered to step into Rahul Gandhi’s shoes as the Congress president for a period of two years in a letter that not too many senior Congressmen are taking seriously.

Khan is the first leader to stake claim to the post after Gandhi offered his resignation at the Congress Working Committee meeting in Delhi on May 25 following the debacle in general elections.

The party’s highest decision-making body unanimously rejected the offer and passed a resolution, authorising Gandhi to revamp the organisation.
