Congress top body clears One-Family-One-Ticket with riders, rejects proposal to set up parliamentary board

The Congress has adopted the one-man-one post rule with some riders at its mega brainstorming session in Rajasthan’s Udaipur. But the proposal for a Parliamentary Board to replace the Congress Election Committee — a key demand of the rebels — was not accepted.

Currently the Election Committee decides on candidates for the Lok Sabha and assembly elections. The idea was blocked by the Gandhi family loyalists and there was a tussle about it within the party.
