Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot on the upcoming Congress party's presidential elections. "It's decided that I'll contest for the post of Congress President. I'll fix the date soon (to file his nomination). It's a need for the Opposition to be strong, looking at the current position of the country.
"I have requested him (Congress MP Rahul Gandhi) multiple times to accept everyone's proposal of becoming the Congress President. He made it clear that no one from the Gandhi family should become the next chief," Gehlot said.
The elections are slated to be held on October 17 at all Pradesh Congress Committees with results being announced on October 19, immediately after the counting of votes.
