Shashi Tharoor meets Congress chief Sonia Gandhi after his 'I endorse...' post

A new Congress chief will be chosen next month and Lok Sabha MP Shashi Tharoor is expected to be a candidate; earlier this month the ex union minister refused to confirm or deny rumours.

Congress MP Shashi Tharoor - who this month refused to rule himself out of running for the post of party president - met interim chief Sonia Gandhi in Delhi on Monday afternoon, hours after he endorsed a petition by younger members of the party seeking 'constructive reforms' in the Congress.

The Lok Sabha MP from Kerala's Thiruvananthapuram tweeted 'I am happy... to go beyond' and pledged support to the Congress' Udaipur NavSankalp Declaration, which express a commitment to free-and-fair internal elections.

The petition had over 650 signature at the time he posted it on Twitter.

"I welcome this petition that is being circulated by a group of young Congress members, seeking constructive reforms in the Party. It has gathered over 650 signatures so far. I am happy to endorse it and to go beyond it," he said.
