 ‘No Gandhi family member should be next Congress President’, three years ago Rahul Gandhi made it clear

NEW DELHI: Congress President Election: The Congress party is going to get a new president in the next few days. The special thing is that this time the President of Congress will not be from the Gandhi family. Ashok Gehlot had told on Friday that Rahul Gandhi has made it clear that no one from the Gandhi family will take over the reins of the party.


However, many party leaders wanted that Rahul Gandhi should become the president again. Let us also tell here that Rahul Gandhi had given indications of this only after the defeat in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

The Congress had to face a crushing defeat in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. Rahul Gandhi was in the president post and he resigned from the post, taking responsibility for the defeat. After submitting his resignation, he had said that the next president of Congress would be from outside the Gandhi family. At the same time, even during the India Jodo Yatra, he said that he is standing by his old stand.

What else did Rahul Gandhi say while resigning?

Rahul Gandhi had said that I take responsibility for the defeat of the party in the Lok Sabha elections. He said, "Accountability is important for the development of our party. For this reason I have resigned from the post of President. It is a matter of pride for me to be on the post of Congress President."

Rahul Gandhi had said, "The party needs to be reorganized for the defeat in 2019. For the party's defeat, people will have to take tough decisions collectively. It would be very wrong to hold everyone responsible for the party's defeat." But being the party president, I should run away from my responsibility."

Who will be the next Congress President?

Nominations for the Congress President's election can be filled from today. The enrollment process will start today. After a long wait and a lot of hard work, elections are being held for the post of Congress President. After many years it is happening that no one from the Gandhi family is standing in the elections. At present, 2 names are in the forefront for the post of President and it is believed that they are going to contest the election. However, in 2-3 days, the situation will become clear who will stake their claim for the president and who will win it.



At present, if we talk about the candidates for the post of President, only two names are ahead in the race. The first name is of Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot. Ashok's pan is the heaviest. He has already said that the responsibility given to him by the party high command, he will discharge it. On the other hand, Shashi Tharoor's name is leading as the second candidate. There can be many reasons for this. Now there is a discussion among all that Manish Tewari can also fill the form for the post of president.
