Congress President Election: Tri-angular election, Mallikarjun Kharge also jumped in the race! Today is the last day of nomination.
Congress President Election Nomination 2022: Who will be the next President of Congress? The bigger question is, who will file the nomination for the post of Congress President?
Today is the last day for nomination for the post of Congress President but has not yet submitted the form.
Actually, the political ruckus of the Rajasthan Congress has spoiled the equation of Sonia Gandhi. The name of Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot was cleared by Sonia Gandhi.
Gehlot had also announced that he was going to contest for the post of Congress President, but his insistence on not giving up the Rajasthan CM’s chair reportedly forced him out of the race.
After meeting Sonia Gandhi on Thursday, Digvijay Singh announced his intention to contest the election.
Meanwhile, the contest for the post of Congress President seems to be triangular after Mallikarjun Kharge’s name cropped up.
The election seems to be triangular in the name of Mallikarjun Kharge.
The contest seems to be triangular with senior Congress leader and Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge jumping into the fray for the post of president.
Mallikarjun is going to meet Kharge and Sonia Gandhi. Earlier on Thursday night, he met with the leaders of Group-23 (G-23).
Manish Tewari, Bhupendra Singh Hooda, and Prithviraj Chavan also attended the meeting held at Anand Sharma’s house.
In such a situation, there is a possibility that today Mallikarjun Kharge can also contest for the post of Congress President. Kharge is a Dalit leader.
He has also been the former state president and union minister of Karnataka. However, no announcement has been made in Mallikarjun Kharge yet.
The equation changed with the politics of Rajasthan.
Had there not been upheaval in Rajasthan Congress, Ashok Gehlot would have filed a nomination for the post of Congress President by now.
Ashok Gehlot was not in favor of making Sachin Pilot sit on the chair of the Chief Minister of Rajasthan.
The Congress’s high command had made a strategy that Ashok Gehlot would become the national president of the party and Sachin Pilot as the chief minister of Rajasthan.
However, in the meantime, the MLAs of the Ashok Gehlot camp sounded the bugle of rebellion, and the equation of the party high command deteriorated.
However, today the situation will become clear how many players will be in the field for the post of Congress President?
If everything goes well, Digvijay Singh.
So far, 2 players are seen in the election fray for the post of Congress President. Digvijay Singh has announced that he will file his nomination today.
On the other hand, Shashi Tharoor is also ready, he told that he is also going to contest for the post of Congress President.
Meanwhile, Digvijay Singh has reached Mallikarjun Kharge’s residence. Anything is possible at the last minute. However, the situation is expected to be almost clear by this afternoon.
