Buddhadev Sengupta and Somnath Roy: Tharoor or Gehlot? Or a third person? Gandhi family in religious crisis to decide who will inherit the post of party president. Tharoor and Gehlot (Ashok Gehlot) as the third person in the discussion Digvijay Singh Has fallen to the event. With neither Sonia nor Rahul Gandhi in the party’s internal electoral battle, the possibility of a three-way contest is increasingly strong. In the absence of the Gandhi family, factionalism in the party may come to the fore. And the saffron camp is ready to take advantage of the factional conflict of the Congress. After the internal elections of the party, the assembly elections of Gujarat will be held. Congress factionalism will be a trump card for BJP. So, in the end, Sonia Gandhi and Rahul can choose a third way, the political circles think.
Congress president election on October 17 between Durga Puja and Diwali. Madhusudan Mistry, who is in charge of the party’s internal elections, has issued a notification on behalf of the party on Thursday. The nomination period will continue for seven days from Saturday. According to 24, Akbar Road reports, if someone gets elected unopposed, then the BJP will start calling for the entire election process to be staged. It will be much more pleasant for the party if the new president is determined through the election. Sonia has even promised to ensure that the entire process is transparent.
The Gandhi family decided to keep themselves out of the party’s internal vote. Several groups of the party have been active on that occasion. For now, the names of three people in the fight are floating in the air. First, Thiruananthapuram MP Shashi Tharoor. Second is Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and third is Digvijay Singh. Sonia Gandhi has already spoken to Shashi Tharoor and Ashok Gehlot separately. Digvijay Singh will also talk to Sonia when he comes to Delhi on Thursday.
There are many problems with the Chief Minister of Rajasthan and the MP of Kerala on various issues. Gehlot is not willing to give up the post of Chief Minister. Shashi Tharoor later joined the party and became an MP. When the Congress market is hot with Tharoor and Gehlot, digvijay Singh, the veteran and experienced leader of the party, came in between and made the air even hotter. A section of the Congress deleted his name on Wednesday. He is also known to be close to the Gandhi family. So Sonia and Rahul cannot throw him out completely. So elections have become inevitable. Meanwhile, Ashok Gehlot spoke for more than two hours at Sonia’s residence at 10, Janpath on Wednesday. He informed Sonia that he is willing to give up the post of Chief Minister of Rajasthan. The wounds of Punjab’s collapse are still fresh. Therefore, the high command does not want to impose any decision on Gehlot before the Rajasthan elections. Gehlot gave examples of Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, PV Narasimha Rao in front of Sonia Gandhi. All three were prime minister and party president together. Then he also asked why he cannot continue as Chief Minister along with the duties of the President.
But, keeping in mind Tharoor’s popularity and Kerala, it is believed that a large part of the party will lean towards him. On top of that, Rahul himself is the MP of Kerala. How far it is possible for him to publicly oppose Tharoor is doubtful. In this situation, it was thought that a third way could be sought by the Gandhi family. The political circles think that the residents of Akbar No. 10 Janpath are breathing a sigh of relief as Digvijoy Singh’s name came up.
