Who will be the successor of Sonia Gandhi… Who will get the command, it will be known tomorrow

New Delhi: Voting took place on Monday in view of the election for the top post in the country’s oldest party, in which 96 per cent votes were cast. Rajya Sabha MP Mallikarjun Kharge and Lok Sabha MP Shashi Tharoor are in the fray for the post. It is noteworthy that after 22 years in the Congress, the PCC delegates of the Congress exercised their franchise to decide the face for the top post. Counting of votes will take place on the next Wednesday and the result will be declared on the same day. With this, the Congress will get a president who will be outside the Gandhi family after two decades.

Former Union minister P Chidambaram was the first to cast his vote at the party’s headquarters in Delhi, while his son Karti Chidambaram cast his vote in his home state of Tamil Nadu. Karti is one of Tharoor’s proponents. Apart from the Congress Head Office in Delhi, there was also a polling booth in the office of the Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee. At the same time, Congress President Sonia Gandhi reached the Congress office with daughter Priyanka Gandhi Vadra at 11 am, where she took part in the voting. After casting her vote, Sonia also told the media that I was waiting for this day for a long time. In fact, the opposition parties have been constantly accusing the party of familialism for being the command of the family. This is the reason that when Rahul Gandhi resigned from the post, taking moral responsibility for the defeat in the 2019 general elections, he had been insisting that a non-Gandhi should now take over the reins of the Congress. No one from his family will now hold this post.

It is noteworthy that Sonia Gandhi, who was the Congress President for almost two decades, and the Gandhi family had decided to completely distance themselves from the elections this time. The family took a neutral stand on both the candidates in the election. However, in an indirect way, Kharge is considered to be the family’s choice and official candidate of the Congress.

Let us inform that in the presidential election, both the candidates – Shashi Tharoor and Mallikarjun Kharge had sought votes for themselves by going to all the states of the country. While Tharoor was seeking votes for himself while talking about change, Kharge said that he would implement the resolutions taken in Udaipur’s Sankalp Shivir after becoming the president. Although Tharoor was a member of the dissident Congress faction G23, all the leaders of G23 have supported Kharge. However, Kharge is also being accused of having remote control of the Gandhi family, on which Kharge said that if he becomes the president, he will have no hesitation in taking the advice and cooperation of the Gandhi family in the affairs of the party, because that family Has struggled a lot and contributed a lot in the development of the party.

On the other hand, now that the non-Gandhi has been decided to become the president of the party, even then a section in the Congress believes that the party will always need the support and support of the family. The Gandhi family will always play an important role in the cause of the party. Senior Congress leader Mukul Wasnik said that Sonia Gandhi is our leader and will always be, while Ambika Soni said that the inclination of the common worker of Congress has always been towards the family and will continue to be so.
