Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on July 18, 2012 expressed his intention to move on from cameos and playing a prominent role in the government. Rahul spoke to the reporters after casting his vote for the presidential elections.

Gandhi said, “It has been decided that I will play a bigger role in the party and the government but the timing would be decided by my bosses – the congress president and the Prime Minister.” The statement from Rahul has confirmed that was earlier predicted by Mail Today in its report ‘From Cameo to Hero’. After Rahul’s comments, Janardhan Dwivedi the AICC’s media in-charge said that they would be very happy if Rahul takes on some responsibility.
