Rahul Gandhi is reportedly considering a run for Congress president.

Under the leadership of interim President Sonia Gandhi, the Congress will hold a ‘Chintan Shivir’ in Udaipur to discuss party organisation and formulate a strategy to challenge the BJP in the upcoming 2024 General Elections.

At the Congress Working Committee (CWC) meeting on March 14, top leaders demanded that Rahul Gandhi take over as President of the Congress.

According to sources, senior Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury advised Wayanad MP to accept the position of President during the meeting.

According to additional sources, “Rahul is willing to take the job. Following that, a proposal was made at the meeting to hold the presidential election in August-September. However, it was decided that the current process could not be postponed.”

Following the defeat in 2019, Rahul Gandhi resigned as Congress president, and Sonia Gandhi assumed the role of interim president.

Discussions and important decisions about the post of Congress president are likely to take place during the next Chintan Shivir, which will be held in Udaipur.

The Chintan Shivir is being held in the aftermath of the party’s humiliation in state assembly elections earlier this year. In the last eight years, the party has suffered several electoral losses. A number of prominent members of Congress have resigned.

Rahul Gandhi was questioned for nearly eight hours by the probe agency on Tuesday. The case relates to alleged misappropriation of funds by the Gandhis in the party-backed Young Indian’s takeover of the National Herald publisher Associated Journals, reports India’s Press Trust of India (PTI).

Top Congress leaders – including party spokesperson Randeep Surjewala – were detained for a second straight day on Tuesday. P Chidambaram, KC Venugopal have been allegedly mandhandled amid the stir in the party’s top leadership meeting at its headquarters in New Delhi.

Meanwhile, the Congress has not backed down from criticising the government’s announcements. The party criticised 10 lakh jobs in 1.5 years and a new military recruitment model as ‘maha jumlas’.

“Why did it take you 8 years to realize that giving Govt jobs is a possibility?” asks senior Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge. “Delivered: the worst ever unemployment crisis,” he writes in a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
