New Delhi: The Indian National Congress is all set to go for elections in a bid to elect their new president. The election is almost set to occur between Shashi Tharoor and Ashok Gehlot for the post.

As per the information received from sources, the fight will be between Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and MP Shashi Tharoor.

Shashi Tharoor sought permission to fight

In fact, Congress leader Shashi Tharoor had met Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi recently. According to sources, Sashi Tharoor had sought permission from Sonia Gandhi to contest the Congress Presidential elections, which has been approved. Sonia Gandhi said- anyone can contest elections. Shashi Tharoor said that he can strengthen internal democracy.

In such a situation, if Tharoor files nomination for the post of Congress President, then the election is certain. Meanwhile, there are reports that Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot may file nomination for the post of Congress President between 26 and 28 September.

Gandhi’s have not filed the nomination

According to information being received from party sources, no one from the Gandhi family will file nomination for the post of Congress President. It is worth noting that Rahul Gandhi has given several indications in the past that he is sticking to his old stand of not becoming the chief of the All India Congress Committee.

State units demand RaGa to be the president

Meanwhile, on Monday, once again the demand for Rahul Gandhi to become the President of Congress rose. Congress units in Rajasthan, Gujarat, Chhattisgarh, Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, Jammu and Kashmir and Bihar passed resolutions saying that Rahul Gandhi should once again take over the reins of the party.

The notification for the election of Congress President will be issued on 22nd September and the process of filing nominations will run from 24th to 30th September. The last date for withdrawal of nominations is October 8. In case of more than one candidate, voting will be held on October 17 and results will be declared on October 19.
