New Delhi: Veteran Congress leader and former CM Digvijay Singh has been out of the race for the post of Congress President. He has given information in this regard on Friday (September 23). However, he has also said that he will follow all kinds of instructions given by the party. Earlier, there were speculations that Diggi Raja could stake a claim for the highest post of Congress. The nomination process in Congress is starting from Saturday. At the moment, Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot has officially declared to enter the election.
In a press conference held in Jabalpur, Digvijay Singh said that he will not contest the election of Congress President, but will follow the party's instructions. While talking to a channel recently, he said that there has been no discussion about it yet. He said that "There has been no discussion, there will be no discussion and I have not asked for time.'' On his visit to Delhi, Digvijay Singh said he was in Delhi to attend a meeting related to the Bharat Jodo Yatra. It is being said in the political corridors about Diggi Raja's withdrawal that Digvijay Singh has pulled his name back to clear the way for Ashok Gehlot.
On Friday, Chief Minister Gehlot also made it clear that he will contest the election for the post of president. With this, the shadows of transformation are also visible in the Rajasthan Congress. In fact, if Gehlot takes charge of the party, he will have to leave Rajasthan's CM chair. At the same time, on Thursday, former president Rahul Gandhi also made it clear that the rule of 'one person, one post' will be operated in the party. Speculation is rife that former deputy CM Sachin Pilot may become the Chief Minister of Rajasthan.
