Gehlot has announced to contest the election of party president. Congress leader and MP Shashi Tharoor is preparing to challenge him. Referring to the ongoing election process for the post of Congress President, Poonawalla said, “In what capacity will Sonia Gandhi take a decision on this as she will become the former president?” Don’t you think legislators should take this decision? If the remote control will remain in the hands of the Gandhi family, then why this election gimmick?’
The BJP spokesperson said that Congress leader P Chidambaram had recently said that whoever becomes the Congress president, Rahul Gandhi will continue to hold the key position in the party. At the same time, in a statement, Poonawalla alleged, “This is proof that the new Congress President will be a ‘proxy’ of the Gandhi family and will be run by the Gandhi family in the same way that Sonia Gandhi used to do Manmohan Singh.” He said that it has now become clear that the election process going on in the Congress is just a sham.
