Sonia Gandhi angry with political drama in Rajasthan
After the political drama in Rajasthan, the Congress leadership has started preparing to find a solution.
After receiving written reports from observers, the Congress high command has asked some leaders to get in touch with Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and explore all options, including finding alternative candidates for the post of president.
Let us inform that Gehlot has not been directly held responsible for the political drama in the report.
What happened in Rajasthan?
Gehlot was going to contest for the post of Congress President, but for this he was asked to leave the post of Chief Minister.
The Congress leadership wanted Gehlot to hand over the chief minister’s chair to Sachin Pilot.
For this, a meeting was called on Sunday evening, in which a resolution supporting the choice of the high command was to be passed, but 90 MLAs of the Gehlot camp did not come to the meeting and reached Shanti Dhariwal’s house and opposed handing over the chair to Pilot.
Action recommended against close relatives of Gehlot
Ajay Maken and Mallikarjun Kharge, who went to Rajasthan as observers, submitted their written report to Sonia Gandhi.
It recommended action against Shanti Dhariwal, Dharmendra Rathod and Mahesh Joshi, considered close to Gehlot.
Taking action on this, the Congress has issued notices to the three leaders and sought their reply within 10 days. They are accused of going against the Congress leadership and holding an unofficial meeting.
No allegations against Gehlot, not even clean chit
Observers have said that the MLAs who boycotted the official meeting are all close to Gehlot. The observers in their report have neither made allegations against Chief Minister Gehlot nor given him a clean chit.
try to find an amicable solution
Indian Express Quoting sources, the ED has written that senior leaders Anand Sharma and Ambika Soni have spoken to Gehlot and appealed to find an amicable solution to the situation. On the call of the Congress high command, Sachin Pilot had also reached Delhi on Tuesday.
There are indications that Gehlot is still not out of the race for the post of Congress President, but it is being said that he will have to give up his insistence and obey the leadership.
The voices of Gehlot supporters softened
On the other hand, the tone of Gehlot supporters in Jaipur seems to be softening. Partap Singh Khachdiawas, a minister in the Gehlot government, said that no MLA is against Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi.
He said that if some MLAs have told about their rights, rights to Sonia and Rahul and resigned in anger, then it is a matter of home. No MLA is against Sonia and Rahul.
What is the party doing for the presidency?
The party leadership is engaged in discussions with senior leaders for the post of president. After Kamal Nath on Monday, Sonia Gandhi met Anand Sharma and Ambika Soni separately on Tuesday. Senior leader AK Antony from Kerala has also been called to Delhi.
The names of Digvijay Singh, Mallikarjun Kharge, Digvijay Singh, KC Venugopal, Mukul Wasnik, Sushil Kumar Shinde, Kumari Selja etc. have now been included in the race for the post of President. Shashi Tharoor’s claim is fixed.
