New Delhi, Sep 17 (PTI) The Congress' Scheduled Castes Department on Friday passed a resolution calling for senior leader Rahul Gandhi's appointment as the president of the party.

Sonia Gandhi had taken over as interim Congress president after Rahul Gandhi resigned from the top post in the wake of the party's Lok Sabha poll debacle in May 2019.

The resolution, which was passed at the national executive meeting of the SC Department, comes days after Indian Youth Congress, Delhi Mahila Congress and Congress students' wing NSUI also passed resolutions on separate occasions seeking to appoint Rahul Gandhi as the party chief.
