Ashok Gehlot further said that I am ready for open elections from Shashi Tharoor. In the question of holding two posts, he said that I cannot do justice by staying on two posts. The whole country wants to see the Congress President. For this I will leave the CM post. In the question of Sachin Pilot becoming the CM, he said that these MLAs will decide what to do. Gehlot had earlier met Sonia Gandhi. After the meeting, Gehlot also said that a different atmosphere will be created for the party if Rahul Gandhi travels to India as Congress President.
When asked whether he would continue to be the chief minister if he becomes the president, he said, “We have passed this resolution, where there are two posts, where the nominees are… this election is for everyone.” Anyone can stand in this whether he is an MP, MLA, Minister, Chief Minister. Tomorrow a minister of a state will say that I want to stand, so it can be. He can also remain a minister and can also become the Congress President.
