Rahul Gandhi’s “No” Lands Congress In Fix On New Party Chief
The impasse over who will lead Congress going forward shows no signs of ending even in election week. According to insiders, the most recent attempts to persuade Rahul Gandhi to accept the position have failed. Since quitting in the wake of the disastrous 2019 general election, he has been staunch in his resistance, rejecting the members’ pleadings.
Due to her health, Sonia Gandhi has also decided against running for president again. Due to the fact that the majority of the 134-year-old organization’s members are still eager to unite around a Gandhi, this has caused the spotlight to move to Priyanka Gandhi Vadra. But many people are troubled by her dismal performance in the Uttar Pradesh elections this year.
The calendar for the upcoming presidential election in the Congress, which will begin today, is unclear due to a lack of agreement. The party has not made any formal remarks regarding the deadlock.
“Yes, Rahul Gandhi has said he is uninterested, but we are urging him to step up despite this. Then, he must inform us about the selection process for this position “Bhakta Charan Das, a former Congressman said.
But Rahul Gandhi still spearheads the Congress’s opposition to the administration. In September, he will speak to a sizable crowd and launch his “Bharat Jodo Yatra” from Kanyakumari.
“Yes, Rahul Gandhi will be heading a rally that we are planning. However, we are unsure of the presidential elections “Bhupinder Singh Hooda, a former chief minister of Haryana, stated. The Congress party’s leadership issue has been building for years, and it has only gotten worse as a result of its consecutive electoral losses and a succession of resignations by prominent figures.
During a meeting in March to review the party’s assembly election losses, Sonia Gandhi volunteered to resign alongside Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra. She was however convinced to continue working until the elections.
