Ashok Gehlot and Shashi Tharoor have both made substantial movements in the lead-up to the nomination period beginning on September 23, intensifying the competition for the top Congress leadership. Sachin Pilot, who might be given a role in Rajasthan if Ashok Gehlot is forced to resign as chief minister, has previously travelled with Rahul Gandhi on his Bharat Jodo Yatra in Kerala. Jairam Ramesh, a Congress member, claimed he was unaware of what was taking place in Rajasthan but was aware of the party systems in place to handle it.

Gehlot, who is due to meet with Sonia Gandhi today, stated that he won’t say no if party members deem him necessary for the position of party president or chief government. “I won’t say no if party members believe I am required to serve as party president or chief executive. I will ask Rahul Gandhi once again (to become Cong president). It will give the party an aura if he leads the Bharat Jodo Yatra as president “He addressed the ANI news agency.

Gehlot reiterated in his remarks on Wednesday that he will follow the party’s instructions while being open to the possibility of running for president. Regarding a potential debate with Shashi Tharoor, Gehlot argued that there should be one since it would improve internal democracy.

The bulk of the states, including Rajasthan, have asked that Rahul Gandhi be the Congress president, according to Sachin Pilot, who sparred with Gehlot. When the election is held on October 17, the party will elect a new President, Sachin Pilot said. Whether he runs for office or not is up to him.
