New Delhi. With the nominations filed for the post of President in the Congress party on Friday, the ruckus has started. Meanwhile, Congress election organization chief Madhusudan Mistry has said that nominations have been filed by three candidates today. Among those who filed nomination papers are Mallikarjun Kharge, KN Tripathi and Shashi Tharoor, but none of them is an official candidate of the party. Everyone is contesting elections on their own. Regarding the election of the President, Sonia Gandhi has made it clear that she is not with anyone. If someone says so, then it is not correct. The Gandhi family has not endorsed anyone’s candidature.
Madhusudan Mistry said that 14 forms were submitted by Mallikarjun Kharge, 5 by Shashi Tharoor and 1 by KN Tripathi for Congress President election. Tomorrow we will check the forms and in the evening announce the forms which are valid. The names of the candidates will be announced along with the nomination papers. Madhusudan Mistry said that none of these 3 is the official candidate of the party. They are contesting elections on their own. Congress President Sonia Gandhi has made it clear that she will remain neutral throughout the process. If someone claims that they have his blessings regarding his support, then it is wrong.
The third name surprised
The electoral contest for the post of Congress National President is getting interesting. The entry of first Ashok Gehlot, Digvijay Singh and then Mallikarjun Kharge surprised the people. It was believed that there would be a direct contest between Kharge and Shashi Tharoor, but now a leader has decided to contest the election about which no one had any idea. Now former Jharkhand government minister KN Tripathi will also contest for the post of Congress President.
