Congress Presidential Election: The suspense regarding the post of Congress President is still intact. The process of nomination is going to start from September 24, but it seems that an opinion has not yet been formed in the party regarding the post of president. For the post of Congress party president, the discussion of Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot is intensified and there is every possibility of him contesting the elections. Meanwhile, news agency ANI has been quoted as saying that sources close to Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot say that Rahul Gandhi is his first choice for the top post of the party.
It is being told that Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot is trying to persuade Rahul Gandhi to contest the elections instead of his nomination.
