Ashok Gehlot’s chances of becoming Congress President are slim
At the same time, in the midst of this political turmoil, the possibility of Ashok Gehlot becoming the Congress President seems to be coming to an end. According to sources, now the Congress high command is putting forward Mallika Arjun Kharge, Mukul Wasnik and Kamal Nath for the post of president. These three leaders are considered close to both Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi.
Last date for nomination for Congress President election 30 September
It is noteworthy that the last date for nomination for the post of Congress President will remain status quo till September 30. According to sources, Gehlot’s chances of filing nomination for the Congress President’s election are slim. The Congress leadership will decide further after September 30. Congress sources believe that this mobilization in favor of Ashok Gehlot is due to the possibility of him becoming the party president.
