New Delhi: Ashok Gehlot, the frontrunner for Congress president, said today that Rahul Gandhi has made it clear that no one from the Gandhi family should become the party chief.
The Rajasthan Chief Minister met with Rahul Gandhi in Kerala, where he joined his “Bharat Jodo Yatra” last evening.
“I requested him multiple times to accept everyone’s wish that he returns as Congress President. He told me he had decided that no one from the Gandhi family should become the next chief,” Mr Gehlot told reporters.
“Rahul ji told me ‘I know they want me to be chief and I respect their wishes but I have decided, for a reason, that a non-Gandhi should be Congress president,” he added.
