New Delhi: Senior Congress leader and former Madhya Pradesh CM Digvijaya Singh has also joined the race for the post of party president. Digvijay Singh is reaching Delhi today in this connection and here he will meet the party's interim president Sonia Gandhi. Earlier, Congress MP Shashi Tharoor and Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot are also in the race to become Congress presidents. Shashi Tharoor even met Madhusudan Mistry and discussed the election process. In this way, the tug of war over the post of Congress president has intensified.
The notification for the election of Congress President will be issued today. A day earlier, Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot and senior party leader Shashi Tharoor have given a clear indication of entering the election riot. Now after a long gap of 22 years, the head of the country's oldest party will be elected through elections. After Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi refused to participate in the elections, the signs of elections increased.
At the same time, Gehlot has already bluntly said that he will accept every decision of the party, but before that he will make one last attempt to convince Rahul Gandhi to become the president. On the other hand, Tharoor, a Lok Sabha MP who is already hinting at contesting the elections, reached the Congress headquarters and met Madhusudan Mistry, chairman of the party's Central Election Authority, and inquired about the nomination process. By the way, the possibility of some other leaders also entering the election season cannot be ruled out.
