Sonia Gandhi resigns, Gehlot to be new Congress President: Report
Congress working president Sonia Gandhi has resigned from her post. This information is coming out through media reports that Sonia Gandhi has resigned from the post of President. Now Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot can become the national president.
After losing the Lok Sabha elections in the year 2019, the then national president Rahul Gandhi resigned from the post of president, taking responsibility for the defeat. Then Sonia Gandhi was made the interim president. After that, there was a constant demand to make Rahul Gandhi the president again within the Congress, but Rahul clearly refused to take the responsibility.
Rahul Gandhi is still hesitant to take over the post of Congress President. Organization election process is going on. The deadline for electing a new president is September/October but Rahul has not yet given a clear answer. In the Congress Working Committee meeting, on the question of Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, Rahul Gandhi asked to consider the possibility of assuming the post of President.
That is why the party is also considering the name of Ashok Gehlot. In the last few days, his activism in the affairs of the party has increased. However, Ashok Gehlot does not want to resign from the post of CM of Rajasthan. But there is a churning going on in the party and efforts will be made to persuade Rahul Gandhi. But if Rahul Gandhi refuses, then Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot is likely to be made the president.
Let us tell you that the process of election in the Congress organization is being completed on August 20 this month. In this regard, President of Congress Election Committee Madhusudan Mistry is coming to Delhi on Wednesday. On the other hand, the media department of Congress refused to say anything when asked about the matter. When Rahul Gandhi resigned from the post of president, he supported the appointment of a non-Gandhi family president for the party. Then the name of former Union Minister Mukul Wasnik came for the post of President. But many other leaders requested Sonia Gandhi and convinced her to become the interim president.
