Now only one day is left in the Congress Presidential election. Congress Presidential candidates Shashi Tharoor and Mallikarjun Kharge are meeting delegates to vote in their favour. However, many veteran Congress leaders have supported Mallikarjun Khadega. But Tharoor is confident that he will get the support of the youth. Please tell that Sonia Gandhi has returned from Shimla to Delhi for the elections. However, the party has not yet disclosed which candidate she will give her support to.
Election will be held for the sixth time in the history of 137 years
For the sixth time in the nearly 137-year history of the Congress party, an electoral contest will be held to decide who will take charge of this important post of the party. With this, if Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra do not contest for the post of party president, after 24 years, someone outside the Gandhi family will become the Congress President. In this regard, both the candidates are touring different states to woo more than 9,000 delegates.
Tharoor made this claim before the elections
Speaking to the media ahead of the elections, Shashi Tharoor claimed that the youth members of the party are supporting him, while senior leaders are supporting another candidate and his rival Mallikarjun Kharge. Senior leaders are supporting Kharge, he said. We are talking about change and senior leaders are opposing it. He admitted that many party office-bearers were campaigning for Kharge. He mentioned that the election will be held by secret ballot and the vote of senior leaders and that of younger members have equal value.
Both the candidates campaigned through SMS
Both the presidential candidates have campaigned in their support across the country. But due to the political crisis in Rajasthan last month, both the leaders did not campaign. Let us inform that in Rajasthan, about 413 delegates have been sought by both the candidates through SMS. At the same time, it has also been disclosed in the media report that 4 to 5 calls have been made to the delegates in a day.
