Digvijay Singh will contest elections
Former Madhya Pradesh CM Digvijay Singh on Thursday said that he will contest for the post of president. Digvijay reached Congress office in Delhi. He said that I have come here to collect the nomination form and will file my nomination tomorrow.
Ashok Gehlot refused to contest elections
Earlier, Ashok Gehlot had announced to quit the CM post to run for the main post.
CM Gehlot said that he had decided to contest the main election of Congress after Rahul Gandhi refused to accept the post. However, he changed his decision after the mass resignation of the MLAs.
More than 80 MLAs loyal to Gehlot submitted their resignations to Speaker CP Joshi at his residence.
All of them opposed Sachin Pilot’s candidature for the post of CM.
