As the date of election for the post of Congress President is approaching, in the same way the stir of Congress leaders is increasing. Till now the names of Shashi Tharoor and Ashok Gehlot are coming up for the post of president, but nothing is final yet. On the other hand, Congress leaders are persuading Rahul Gandhi to become Congress President again, but Rahul is now avoiding this question with just a smile. Meanwhile, many meetings are being held in Delhi, whose effect seems to be reaching Kochi in Kerala. Talking about Wednesday, Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot came to Delhi and met Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi. On the other hand, Kerala MP Shashi Tharoor reached the AICC (All India Congress Committee) headquarters in Delhi. Here he met Madhusudan Mistry, chairman of the Congress’s Central Election Authority and inquired about the process of elections. Talking about Tharoor, he has already met Sonia Gandhi. In this meeting, he had expressed his desire to stand for the post of Congress President. Sonia had also given the green signal for this. On the other hand, Ashok Gehlot is saying so far that his first attempt will be that Rahul Gandhi should become the Congress President. For this, he will also try to persuade Rahul Gandhi to meet him in Kerala during the India Jodo Yatra. But if Rahul does not agree, then he will start preparing for the presidential election. However, there is also a suspense on whether Gehlot will leave the Rajasthan CM’s chair if he is made the president? Suspense on the presidential candidates So far, the names of Tharoor and Gehlot are also coming out in the race for the post of president. However, no official announcement has been made yet. The process of nomination is also to start from September 24 and will continue till September 30. So what will happen in this election, it is all suspense right now. Congress leaders believe that the last date to withdraw the nomination is 30 September. In such a situation, on September 29, the picture will be clear that who is in the election. Now all eyes are also on Ashok Gehlot’s visit to Kochi on 22nd August. He will join the India Jodo Yatra here. During this time he will also meet Rahul Gandhi. Here he may try to persuade Rahul Gandhi to take over the post of President for the ‘one last time’. Rahul Gandhi, the choice of Kerala Congress, 10 other states also passed the resolution Apart from the commotion of Delhi, Rahul Gandhi’s name in Kerala is currently on the lips of Congress leaders and supporters. Posters with ‘Rahul Gandhi people’s prime minister’ were also seen during Rahul’s visit to Ernakulam. Rahul may be describing himself as just a part of the Bharat Jodo Yatra, but it is clear that he is the face of this journey. Shashi Tharoor is an MP from Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala. At the same time, Rahul Gandhi is also an MP from Wayanad in Kerala. But here the first choice of Congress leaders as president is Rahul Gandhi. Apart from this, till now 10 states Congress unit has passed a resolution to make Rahul Gandhi the party president again. Many senior Congress leaders were seen with Rahul Gandhi in this yatra, which started on September 7. Some have even admitted in the conversation with Aaj Tak that they are requesting Rahul Gandhi to become the party president again. Senior leader Ramesh Chennithala told that Rahul only smiles on this request. Chennithala even said that Rahul is not a consensus candidate. Rather, he is the only candidate for the post of President who is acceptable to Congressmen across the country. When is the election for the post of Congress President? Nomination for the post of Congress President will be done from September 24 to September 30. Nominations can be withdrawn till October 8. Then on October 17, the election for the post of Congress President will be held. After this, the votes will be counted on October 19. The results of the elections are to be declared on the same day. But this election will be held only when it is needed or the circumstances will be according to this. Congress sources say that at present, the effort is to make the candidate with consensus the president. But there was a twist in the matter after Tharoor expressed his desire to contest the elections. According to sources, at present there are four options before the Congress. The first option is to unanimously elect Rahul Gandhi as the party president. Secondly, if no one files the nomination, then the ball will go in the court of CWC (Congress Working Committee). The third option is to reach a consensus on a candidate, in which case there will be no need to hold elections. The fourth option is that if there is more than one candidate, a new president of the Congress should be elected through elections.
