Notification for the post of Congress President has been issued on Thursday. With this, the stir in the Congress party has intensified. Various speculations are being made about Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot. If sources are to be believed, Ashok Gehlot is not going to resign from the post of Chief Minister so easily and so soon.
Gehlot will continue to serve as the Chief Minister for some time even after filing his nomination for the post of President. However, yesterday (Thursday) he had given indications of leaving the post of Rajasthan CM after meeting with Rahul Gandhi in Kerala. At the same time, he had also confirmed that he would nominate for the post of president.
A non-Gandhi family person will become president
Ashok Gehlot said today that it is decided that he has to contest for the post of president. Congress is going to make a new beginning and they hope that for the situation in the country, it is very important for the opposition to be strong. Congress will leave no stone unturned for that. He said that he respects all people.
Gehlot said that PCCs have passed Prastan and party workers also want it, I have a lot of respect for them in my heart. The party has decided that this time someone from a non-Gandhi family should become the president. Let us tell you that September 30 is the last date for filing nominations for the post of President. Apart from Gehlot and Shashi Tharoor, Digvijay Singh is also being discussed in the race for the post of Congress President.
Pilot and CP Joshi met
In the Rajasthan Legislative Assembly building, Sachin Pilot had a long meeting with the Speaker of the Assembly, Dr. CP Joshi. The conversation between these two lasted for about one and a half hours. According to informed sources, this meeting has many meanings. CP Joshi's name is leading in the race for Chief Minister. In such a situation, there is a possibility of Pilot getting the state president of Congress and CP Joshi getting the chair of CM. To avoid the media, Pilot left through the second door of the Legislative Assembly.
Gehlot's biggest tension
Although Ashok Gehlot has agreed to contest the election of Congress President, he is still not fascinated by Rajasthan. However, Ashok Gehlot is definitely seen on the backfoot since Rahul Gandhi's talk of sticking to the one-person one post formula. His biggest concern is about Sachin Pilot becoming the CM anyway. Gehlot, the master of politics, is trying every trick inside to prevent Pilot from becoming the CM.
