Ashok Gehlot urges Rahul Gandhi to be made Congress President again
Gehlot had sensed the enthusiasm of party leaders-workers and local Congressmen gathered from across the country on Wednesday evening at the confluence of the three seas in Kanyakumari. While talking to reporters along with Jairam Ramesh and Digvijay Singh, Gehlot said that the Congress and the country are facing serious challenges like today, if Rahul Gandhi becomes the President, then the party will be able to face these challenges in a better way.

If Rahul becomes Congress President, the party will remain united
Referring to the special attraction shown for Rahul in Kanyakumari with the Bharat Jodo Yatra, Ashok Gehlot has come up with a scathing attack criticizing the BJP's attacks on the Gandhi family. He said that for the last 32 years, no member of the Gandhi family is holding any post. Sonia Gandhi herself did not come into politics, but when the Congress faced serious challenges, we Congress leaders put pressure on us and made the Congress President. But Sonia Gandhi even turned down the Prime Minister's chair and Rahul Gandhi also did not take the post of minister. Gehlot said that Rahul is such a sincere and serious person that he resigned from the post of president after the defeat in the 2019 elections on moral grounds. But the challenge the Congress is facing today, it is clear that only under the leadership of Rahul Gandhi, we can face them unitedly.
