Confirmed! Ashok Gehlot will contest for the post of Congress President!
Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, after sending out mixed signals for several days, has confirmed that he will contest the upcoming elections for the post of Congress President.
The leader had said that he would urge Rahul Gandhi to become the party president before fixing the date for filing nominations for the post. Obviously, Gandhi stuck to his stand that he and his family members would stay away from internal elections.
Gehlot said, "It is certain that I will contest the election (for the post of Congress president). I will soon fix the date (for filing his nomination). Given the current situation in the country, the opposition needs to be strong."
