Rahul GandhiResolutions have already been passed in several states seeking Rahul Gandhi’s post as Congress president. One of them is Gehlot’s own state Rajasthan. But on Friday morning, Gehlot told reporters, “Rahul Gandhi wants no member of the Gandhi family to be the president of the Congress.” I convinced him many times to take the responsibility of this post. Most Congress workers want it. But Rahul did not agree to that.” Gehlot also said, “Rahulji told me that he knows that everyone wants him as the Congress president. But for one particular reason, he does not want any member of the Gandhi family to be the Congress President.”
President of Congress Two names have emerged as possible candidates for the post – Shashi Tharoor and Ashok Gehlot. However, no announcement has been made on Tharoor’s candidacy so far.
