NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India's main opposition party Congress on Monday appointed Rahul Gandhi, the scion of the country's most fabled political dynasty, as its president, the party announced.

The great-grandson of India's founding prime minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, was elected unopposed to head the party, which was defeated heavily in a 2014 general election.
