People are considering senior Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge as the official candidate of the party.

There are only a few days left in the Congress Presidential election. Meanwhile, Shashi Tharoor, the first candidate to file nomination for the post of president, reached Tamil Nadu on Thursday. Tharoor was to meet with more than 700 delegates in the capital Chennai, but only 10 to 12 delegates arrived for the meeting. Voting for the post of president is to be held on October 17 and counting of votes will be held on October 19.

Tharoor was disappointed

Shashi Tharoor's meeting was to be held at the Congress party headquarters in Chennai on Friday. Earlier, a program was organized by Tharoor, in which Tharoor was going to meet more than 700 delegates. But only about 10 to 12 delegates reached this program. Giving this information in the media, Tharoor said that fewer delegates had reached the program than expected. Had he come to the program, there could have been a good conversation.

Gandhi family welcomed everyone: Tharoor

According to media reports, attending Tharoor's meeting is being considered against the official candidate of the party. People are considering senior Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge as the official candidate of the party. However, the Congress high command has spoken of fair elections for the post of president. In response to this question, Tharoor said that the Gandhi family has welcomed all the candidates. At the same time, the party has not announced any official candidate. He said that if people are considering Mallikarjun Kharge as the official candidate, then we will dispel this myth soon.

That's why Congress veteran is angry with Tharoor

Significantly, many senior Congress leaders are considering Shashi Tharoor out of the contest. On the previous day, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot had also tweeted saying that Shashi Tharoor has been active in the party for a long time. However, Tharoor wrote a letter to Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi when she was admitted to the hospital. Thousands of Congress workers were displeased with this. At the same time, many leaders believe that who will be the President of Congress, it has become clear now. Just being a formality.
