New Delhi, June 4: Sonia Gandhi did not become Prime Minister — as a result, she will have to wear many more hats.
The Manmohan Singh government tonight appointed her the head of the 20-member National Advisory Council that will monitor implementation of the ruling coalition’s common minimum programme.
She will hold cabinet rank. With this post, Sonia now has an array of positional responsibilities to her name.
Sonia is the chairperson of the Congress parliamentary party, she heads the United Progressive Alliance and its coordination committee and she is, of course, the Congress president.
