At the ceremony attended by the outgoing party president Sonia Gandhi and former prime minister Manmohan Singh, Rahul Gandhi was formally handed over the election certificate for being chosen the party president unopposed.
The new president of the Congress exhorted the workers to challenge those who control the “machinery of fear” and “silence the voice of ordinary Indians”.
In his first tweet after becoming Congress President, Gandhi wrote,
"I want the Congress party to become an instrument for dialogue between Indian people, from all corners of our great country, all religions, all ethnicities, all ages and gender and for our dialogue to be led by love and affection."
