New Delhi: The election for the post of National President of Congress is approaching. At the same time, there is a lot of talk about the names of Rahul Gandhi and current interim president Sonia Gandhi in the Congress. However, this time Congress leaders seem to have different views on Rahul becoming the party president. At the same time, it is reported that Rahul, MP from Wayanad Lok Sabha seat of Kerala, is not ready to take charge himself.
According to media reports, many party leaders, including office-bearers of the All India Congress Committee (AICC), are also not able to say with confidence that Rahul will take the post of president again. Rahul resigned as congress president after the party's humiliating defeat in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. According to the report, there are also discussions among Congress leaders that 'If not Rahul Gandhi, who will become Congress President?' Only Rahul can tell what is going on in his mind. As far as the election of the Congress president is concerned, the high command remains on its schedule. Due to logistical reasons, it can be extended for a maximum of a few days.
According to the report, several senior party leaders had personally tried to convince Rahul to promise mother Sonia Gandhi to take over as president, but Rahul did not make any such promise to them. A senior Congress leader has told "Even though I can't say what will happen in the end, looking at the situation, I think Rahul has gone too far to accept the post back.' According to the report, if Rahul refuses to become president again, then leaders like Mukul Wasnik and Mallikarjun Kharge can get the command as compromise candidates in the Congress camp. It is reported that almost all Congress leaders and state Congress committees will be ready to request Gandhi-Vadra to take over the post of president.
