These Congress leaders have expressed the possibility that Rahul Gandhi will accept their request.
... will agree Rahul Gandhi
According to a report published in the Times of India, Rahul Gandhi has returned to India from a foreign trip and party leaders will continue to try to persuade him to contest for the post of Congress President. Let us tell you that after the defeat in the Lok Sabha elections in 2019, Rahul Gandhi had resigned from the post of Congress President. It was also said that no one from the Gandhi family would lead the party. Now that the Congress is going through a period of uncertainty over the leadership issue, many leaders in the party have expressed the possibility that Rahul Gandhi will step down and be ready to contest the internal elections to be held by October.

A source close to Rahul Gandhi said efforts were being made to persuade him as it was the only good option for the party. Their consent cannot be denied, but a lot will depend on how the Delhi rally against inflation and then the Bharat Jodi Yatra goes on Sunday. At the same time, a senior leader said that Rahul will be on a 150-day journey from Kanyakumari to Kashmir.
