Congress president race heats up, Gehlot to meet Sonia Gandhi on September 29

Jaipur, 29/9: With just two days left for filing nomination, the battle lines for the Congress president election are not clear yet but Digvijaya Singh appeared to be emerging as a new contender while a final word on Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot’s prospects could finally emerge on Thursday.

While Singh has made it clear that he has not discussed contesting elections with the Gandhis and sources claiming that it is his personal endeavour, the former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister expects the support of the family.


However, Singh’s prospects will depend on how Sonia’s decision on Gehlot turns out. Even if she decides against Gehlot, Singh may not be a natural choice for the Gandhi family’s support, as the leadership may look at a bunch of leaders. These include Mukul Wasnik, Mallikarjun Kharge, Meira Kumar and Kumari Selja. Sources said Kharge has conveyed to the leadership that he would abide by their decision on the elections.
