AICC General Secretary KC Venugopal had earlier said that Rahul Gandhi had made it clear that he would not be running for the post of president. Rahul Gandhi’s position is that someone from outside the Gandhi family should take over the post of president. But party leaders say that if the Gandhi family does not take over the presidency, it will lead to the downfall of the Congress. The decision of the senior leaders is to put pressure on Rahul Gandhi by asking him to take over the post of President. Leaders are threatening to resign from the party if he is not ready to become the president.

Meanwhile, if Rahul Gandhi contests, there may be no candidates from the G-23, a coalition of revisionist groups in the Congress. If Rahul does not contest, senior leader Shashi Tharoor may contest as a representative of G-23. But Tharoor is not interested in contesting against the Gandhi family. Tharoor is looking for a chance to become a consensus candidate.
