Shashi Tharoor to contest for new Congress chief

New Delhi, 19/9: Senior MP Shashi Tharoor met Congress president Sonia Gandhi, who returned to the capital after a medical check-up abroad, on Monday at a time he is contemplating contesting the party presidential election.



Senior leaders JP Agarwal, Avinash Pande and Deepender Hooda also met Sonia at her residence, three days before issuance of the notification for the party president’s election.


Tharoor did not speak to the media after he met Sonia though it is learnt that the Thiruvananthapuram MP, who had signed the G-23 letter seeking clarity on leadership issues in August 2020, discussed the organisational elections.
