Delhi, 30th September 2022: After the exit of Ashok Gehlot from the race for the post of Congress President, the suspense regarding the post has deepened further. Now, Mukul Wasnik of G-23 has entered the race for the post. Earlier, Digvijay Singh reached Delhi and announced to fill out the nomination form for the post of President. Mukul Wasnik has been in the Congress for a long time and is a close friend of the Gandhi family.
Sources say that Mukul Wasnik may be the official candidate from the Congress party. Reportedly, efforts are being made to persuade Mukul Wasnik about this. Significantly, Mukul Wasnik is one of the 23 Congress leaders who wrote a letter to Sonia Gandhi two years ago, talking about changes within the party.
Earlier, after the removal of Ashok Gehlot, the names of Shashi Tharoor and Digvijay Singh were left in the race for the post of president. In such a situation, if there is an entry of Wasnik, this match will become interesting and triangular. Wasnik has a very low profile compared to Tharoor and Digvijay. It is said that the same thing seems to be going in his favour. Sources say that many central Congress leaders are not comfortable with Digvijay Singh’s controversial image.
Reportedly, the name Mukul Wasnik emerged during the brainstorming session of Congress after Ashok Gehlot withdrew from the race for the post of Congress President. According to sources, the Gandhi family is very upset about what has happened in Rajasthan. At the same time, Mukul Wasnik has a meeting with senior leader AK Antony. It is being said that he will also meet Ashok Gehlot soon. Sources say that given Wasnik’s vast political experience, his name has been carried forward.
