Veteran leader Mallikarjun Kharge will formally take over the presidency of the Congress on Wednesday after handing over the certificate of election to a post here. Hectic preparations were made at Congress headquarters on Tuesday for the ceremony where outgoing President Sonia Gandhi will hand over the reins to Kharge, the first non-Gandhi to lead the party in 24 years. Kharge defeated Thiruvananthapuram MP Shashi Tharoor in a direct contest for the top post in the big old party after the Gandhis withdrew from the race.
