congress president election The hustle and bustle about it has intensified. In such a situation, the speculation on Shashi Tharoor’s candidature is now starting to come true. Tharoor has given such indications many times that he wants to contest the election of Congress President. Even though he has never said anything explicitly, but his words have reflected his desire many times. Congress sources say that if Tharoor files nomination for the post of Congress President, then elections are sure to be held. According to a party camp, if someone from the Gandhi family does not file nomination for the election of Congress President and Tharoor does, then most of the party leaders will definitely give a candidate against him.
“If no one from the Gandhi family will file nomination for this post and Tharoor files his nomination, we will definitely give a candidate against him,” the sources said. Be it Ashok Gehlot or Digvijay Singh. Because both these leaders have been associated with the Congress from the lower level and have reached here, not only Khanty Congressmen. He never took any rhetoric or any action against the party or the Gandhi family. At the same time, Tharoor, a Lok Sabha member, met Sonia Gandhi on Monday regarding this. It is being said that in the discussion with Sonia, Tharoor asked that “I should contest the election of Congress President. Half of my supporters are saying fight. Half are saying don’t fight. What do you say?” So Sonia replied that “Anyone can fight. Fight if you want.”
