New Delhi: Congress General Secretary Organisation K.C. Venugopal has been asked to come to Delhi to meet Sonia Gandhi ahead of the party’s president poll.
Venugopal was in Bharat Jodo Yatra since it started from September 7 in Kanyakumari.
Congress on Tuesday reiterated that anyone can contest the party president’s poll as it was a democratic and transparent process and no nod was required from the leadership.
Jairam Ramesh, party General Secretary said, “Entire party is immersed in making #BharatJodoYatra a success. Even so it’s important to reiterate that any member is welcome to contest for Congress President. This is a democratic & transparent process. Nobody needs anybody’s nod to contest, especially that of party leadership.”
The process for the Congress presidential polls will begin with the issuance of notification on September 22. It is likely that the main contest for the top party post will be between Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor.
