Addressing the Mahila Congress Programme, his first event as the party's president-elect, Gandhi said, "We have to work on transforming the Congress Party, and a fundamental part of it is going to be the role of women in the party at every single level."
"Unfortunately we do not have a woman president anymore, so we will have to compensate. We will work on having women Chief Ministers in states," he added.
The newly elected party president also assured mandating reservation for women.
Gandhi also commended the work of the Congress unit in Gujarat, and hinted that the party may win the state's assembly elections.
"In difficult circumstances, the Congress Party has fought in unison, and you'll get the result of it on 18th December. Maybe you are going to get a surprise in Gujarat, about who won and by what margin," Gandhi said.
The counting of votes for the election will be held on December 18. (ANI)
