Gehlot met Sonia after hinting that she would enter the fray for the post of Congress President


Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot met Congress President Sonia Gandhi here on Wednesday after she indicated that he may enter the AICC presidential election fray.

Sources said the election of the Congress president’s post was on the agenda during the discussions between Gehlot and Sonia Gandhi.

The Rajasthan Chief Minister met Sonia Gandhi at her 10, Janpath residence and is expected to travel to Mumbai later in the day. He is expected to reach Kochi on Thursday and make his last attempt to persuade Rahul Gandhi to take over the reins of the party.

Talking to reporters after reaching here from Jaipur, Gehlot gave a clear indication that he can contest for the Presidential election of Congress.

However, he also said that he would make his last effort to persuade Rahul Gandhi to take over as the party president.

Gehlot said that he will take such decisions which have strengthened the Congress.

He said, ‘The party and high command have given everything to me. I have been in the positions for 40-50 years. No post is important to me, whatever responsibility has been given to me, I will fulfill it.

Gehlot on Tuesday told Congress MLAs in Rajasthan that they would be asked to come to New Delhi if they decide to file their nominations for the party’s presidential election.

The meeting between Gehlot and Sonia Gandhi comes just a day before the Central Election Authority of the Congress issues notification for the Presidential election of the All India Congress Committee (AICC).

After more than two decades, the Congress is likely to see a contest for its chief’s post, with Shashi Tharoor set to take the field after a meeting with Sonia Gandhi and Gehlot, hinting that he is putting his cap on Will throw you in the ring if Rahul Gandhi does not agree to take over the reins of the party.

The process of filing nominations for the elections will continue from September 24 to September 30.

The date of scrutiny of nomination papers will be October 1 while the last date for withdrawal of nominations will be October 8.

If there is more than one candidate, the election will be held on October 17, while the counting of votes, if necessary, and the declaration of results will take place on October 19.
