Rajasthan Chief Minister and senior Congress leader Ashok Gehlot can soon become the new president of the party instead of Rahul Gandhi. The Congress has made a decision about this and has also asked Ashok Gehlot to be prepared for it. Although the picture is not clear whether Ashok Gehlot will be the Congress president alone or two or three more will be appointed as the executive president, but it is certain that in the next few days the Congress is going to get a new president, not from the Gandhi family. Will happen.
Gehlot, on Wednesday, congratulated Rahul on his birthday, urging him to remain party chief in the country and in public interest. But according to sources, despite all the efforts to celebrate, Rahul Gandhi did not believe and he made it clear that till the party does not pick a new leadership, a new beginning is not possible.
Rahul has also made it clear that Priyanka Gandhi’s name will not be considered for her replacement. In fact, the Narendra Modi-led BJP has consistently kept the Congress on the issue of dynasty. In such a situation, by removing Rahul Gandhi and appointing a senior Congress leader as president, this issue will end forever.
That’s why things in Gehlot’s favor
* There has been an old experience of running the organization. In the year 2017, in the Gujarat assembly elections, it was considered to be an attempt by the Congress to perform better.
* Come from backward castes. If the Congress has to recover the lost base, then there is a big challenge to get the vote again from this community.
* There are better relations with Sonia and Rahul Gandhi. Apart from this, their equation is fine with other Congress leaders.
Sachin Pilot will handle Rajasthan
According to sources, after Ashok Gehlot being made Congress President, the Deputy Chief Minister of Rajasthan can be given to Sachin Pilot. In the recent past, there have been many reports of controversy between Gehlot and Pilot factions. The party feels that by becoming the president of Gehlot, this problem will also be overcome.
