New Delhi, 22 September.
Elections for the post of Congress President are to be held on October 19. Whereas the enrollment will be on 30 September. Rahul Gandhi has already refused to contest for the post of President. At the same time, it is believed that Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot is the fittest for this post and he will contest the elections. Meanwhile, another news has come. If sources are to be believed, senior leader Digvijay Singh can also make nomination for the post of Congress President. He will also meet Interim President Sonia Gandhi in this regard today. However, it has not yet been confirmed by the party that he will contest the elections. But Sonia Gandhi has already said that anyone can contest for the post of president.
Ashok Gehlot is all set for the post of President
Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot is all set for the election of Congress President. In such a situation, he will do what the party has asked him to do. At the same time, Shashi Tharoor will also contest against him. He has also spoken to his interim president Sonia Gandhi regarding this. In the same sequence, he visited the AICC Headquarters today and is finalizing his nomination papers for the elections. Earlier it was believed that the direct contest for the post of Congress President would be between Gehlot and Tharoor. But if Digvijay Singh contests, the contest will turn triangular.
Gehlot not ready to leave CM post
Here, Ashok Gehlot is not ready to leave the post of Chief Minister even after contesting for the post of President. He is trying his best so that he does not have to leave the post of Chief Minister. In fact, Gehlot had promised ‘one person, one post’ in the party’s Udaipur ‘Nav Sankalp Announcement’. That is, the same person cannot hold two positions at the same time. However, Ashok Gehlot says that when one contests internal elections, the rule of ‘one man, one post’ does not apply. I can hold two or three positions. According to him, this rule is applicable in the case of nominated posts.
Giants were also surprised by Gehlot’s insistence
Gehlot’s insistence on continuing as chief minister has created a flutter in the party and veterans have privately said that if he wins, he will definitely have to step down as chief minister. At the same time, on Thursday, Sachin Pilot and Gehlot will join Rahul Gandhi in the Quit India Yatra in Kochi. In such a situation, it is believed that Rahul Gandhi will try his best to persuade Gehlot. Apart from this, senior Congress leaders are also wanting that Sachin Pilot should become the Chief Minister of Rajasthan.
Gehlot gave this answer regarding filing the nomination for the post of President
When Gehlot was asked about the filing of nomination papers for the election of Congress President, he said that I will talk to other leaders and take a decision. However, it is believed that he can file nomination after September 26. Earlier on September 23, he would go to Shirdi for darshan. Let us tell you that vigorous lobbying has started for the post of CM of Rajasthan. Even though Gehlot has said that he will continue as the CM, the names of Sachin Pilot, CP Joshi and Shanti Dhariwal are running for the Chief Minister.
