Delhi: While it is said that Rahul Gandhi does not want to contest for the post of Congress party president, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot is likely to contest against Sonia Gandhi with the support of Sonia Gandhi. Why is Ashok Khelat supported by Sonia Gandhi? There are 5 main reasons behind this.

Election of Congress President

Election of Congress President

In this situation, Sonia Gandhi has decided to appoint Ashok Khelat, the Chief Minister of Rajasthan, as the President of the Congress Party. MP Saseetharoor, who is one of the G23 leaders, is also planning to run for the presidency. A few days ago, Sonia Gandhi called Sasitharoor on September 19 and talked about this. Similarly, Ashok Khelat met Sonia Gandhi yesterday. In this case, it is said that there may be a contest between Ashok Khelat and Sasidharur in the election of Congress president.

Initiation of Petition

Initiation of Petition

The nomination for this will be held from September 24 to September 30. Applications will be considered on October 1st. October 8 is the last day to withdraw petitions. If more than one person contests for this post, the election will be held on October 17. If this election is held, it will be the fifth election for the Congress party president in its 137-year history. In this case, it is said that Ashok Khelat will take the lead and win the match between Ashok Khelat and Sasidharur. There are 5 main reasons behind this. Its details are as follows:

The first reason

The first reason

Ashok Khelat is a loyalist of the Nehru-Sonia Gandhi family. He regularly consults with Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi on various matters. When Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi were investigated by the Enforcement Directorate, Ashok Gehlot continued to lead the protest in Delhi. He was arrested several times. And Sonia Gandhi held several press conferences to defend Rahul Gandhi. He is also the Chief Minister of Rajasthan and overseer of the soon-to-be-polled Gujarat. But on the other hand, Chasitharur, like Ashok Khelat, was not so close to Nehru and Sonia Gandhi’s family. He is also known as one of the leaders of G23. It is noteworthy that Sonia had written a letter to Gandhi asking for internal reforms in 2020 and transparency in high-level meetings. So Ashok Khelat seems to be more loyal to Sonia Gandhi’s family than Sasitharoor.

2nd reason

2nd reason

Ashok Khelat basically belongs to the Congress party. The bond between him and the Congress is very long. He has been MP 5 times and MLA 5 times. He is also the General Secretary of the Congress Party. He is also the Chief Minister of Rajasthan. But Sasidharoor has been working for the Congress party since 2009. He has been elected three times as an MP from Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala. He continues to be the President of the Professional Wing of the Congress Party.

3rd reason

3rd reason

Ashok Khelat Khelat is politically astute. He has been Union Minister for 3 times. He was in the cabinet of Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi and PV Narasimha Rao. 3 is the Chief Minister. Meanwhile, Sasidharoor has served as Union Minister for 2 times. Both times he was a minister for only a short time. He was first Minister of External Affairs from 23 May 2009 to 18 April 2010 and then Minister of Human Resource Development from 28 October 2012 to May 2014. He has held several positions in the United Nations including Deputy Secretary General for 29 years from 1978-2007. He has written 23 books. In 2006, he ran for the post of UN Secretary General succeeding Gobi Annan. He then withdrew. He has experience in things other than Congress and political posts. This is also a problem for Sashidarur.

4th reason

4th reason

And Ashok Khelat, who is the Chief Minister of Rajasthan, has good political experience. The Congress Party wants to use this all over India. And by giving him the post of Congress President, the post of Chief Minister of Rajasthan can be given to Sachin Pilot. The Congress party thinks that through this, it will be able to create the next leader in Rajasthan and maintain the rule there.

5th reason

5th reason

And Ashok Khelat is an experienced politician who doesn’t get caught up in politics. He is well aware of India’s political position and people’s thinking. But Sasidharur is not like that. He is also known for controversies. He was embroiled in a controversy and lost his post as a Union minister for allegedly misusing his position to buy stake in IPL cricket. After that he was embroiled in controversy over the death of his wife Sunanda. Besides, he uses Twitter a lot and makes it a habit to comment and keep controversies to himself. In 2021, he posted a picture of himself with 6 female MPs and sparked controversy. This is why Sonia Gandhi wants to make Ashok Khelat as the president rather than Sashitharoor.
