Vivid News 24: Congress President Election 2022 after almost two decades. After 24 years, there is no member of the Gandhi family in the fight. Far away from Delhi, Rahul Gandhi is busy with the ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ program in Karnataka. If not in the fight, then the former Congress president will not vote? This question has been circulating in the house for a few days. Senior Congress leader Jairam Ramesh replied on Sunday.
He informed that son of sonia will express his opinion in the election of party president from Bellary in Karnataka. Mallikarjun Kharge and Shashi Tharoor are fighting in the Congress presidential election. Kharge, a veteran leader from Karnataka, is known to be very close to the Gandhi family within the Congress. Although the Gandhi family has been playing a neutral role since the beginning of this election, the Hath camp claims.
“Will Rahul Vote”?
Rahul Gandhi started the ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ program from Kanyakumari in September. Despite many requests from party leaders, he did not agree to contest for the post of Congress President. In this context, many people questioned whether Rahul Gandhi will vote in this election. If he votes, will Rahul leave ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ and return to Delhi?
That question was also raised. On Sunday, Congress leader Jairam Ramesh tweeted, “Many are asking where Rahul Gandhi will vote in the presidential election. There is no room for speculation that Rahul will vote with the remaining 40 delegates at the Bharat Jodo Yatra camp at Sanganakal in Bellary.”
Which side of the Gandhi family?
Inside the Congress, Mallikarjun Kharge is known to be close to the Gandhi family. According to a section of the political circle, this veteran leader entered the party’s vote battle on Gandhi’s proposal. Many people think that if Kharge wins the election, the remote control of the party will be in the hands of Sonia-Rahul. Shashi Tharoor has also been accused of favoritism against a section of the party during the election campaign.
Congress president candidate Tharoor claimed that in many states, senior leaders did not come to the meeting called by him. An atmosphere of unequal competition has been created. Although Shashi Tharoor did not make any complaint against the Gandhi family in this episode. On the part of Congress, however, the neutral position of the Gandhi family has been repeatedly mentioned.
Rahul Gandhi, however, claimed that the Gandhi family would not control the future Congress president. A few days ago he said, “Both Mallikarjun Kharge and Shashi Tharoor are the first-rank leaders of the Congress. The idea that any one of them will run the Gandhi family by remote control is not right.”
