Ashok Gehlot to be the next Congress President?

Jaipur, 28/8: As the Congress is facing a most turbulent time with veteran leaders Ghulam Nabi Azad, and Jaiveer Shergill among others going on a resignation spree, all eyes are on an old warhorse and Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot to see if he will lead the Congress from the front as AICC president.


If sources in the Congress are to be believed, hints were dropped to Gehlot to lead the show as Congress president during his recent meeting with Sonia Gandhi. However, Gehlot over the last week has been insisting that Rahul Gandhi should be made the party president.


After meeting Sonia Gandhi, Gehlot on his return to Rajasthan told the media, “Right now, the party high command has given me two responsibilities. The first is to work as the senior observer for Gujarat, and the other as Chief Minister of Rajasthan. I will do both. I will put all my efforts to ensure that Congress retains power in Rajasthan.”
