The resolution was passed unanimously in a meeting of CPCC executive body and district presidents held at Rajiv Bhawan, the party’s state office, a release issued by CPCC spokesperson Vikas Tiwari said.

“The resolution to reelect Rahul Gandhi as president of Indian National Congress was proposed by Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel. It was seconded by AICC state in charge PL Punia and CPCC president Mohan Markam,” the release added.
