Bright Times News: The Congress president received Kharge’s letter of resignation from the 80-year-old politician, and it is by the party’s ‘One person, one post’ tenet, which was declared at the Udaipur ‘Chintan Shivir’ in May.
The day after he submitted his candidacy papers for the AICC president’s election, senior Congressman Mallikarjun Kharge resigned from his position as the Leader of the Opposition in the Rajya Sabha, according to sources on Saturday.
According to the reports, Kharge sent his letter of resignation last night. According to reports, P Chidambaram and Digvijaya Singh are the front-runners to become the Leader of the Opposition in the Rajya Sabha.
On Friday, conditions were made for Kharge and Shashi Tharoor to compete for the position of Congress president. A Dalit leader from Karnataka named Kharge has emerged as the clear front-runner.
K N Tripathi, a former minister from Jharkhand who is the third contender, is viewed as a weak link in the race.
On the final day of the process, Kharge, Tharoor, and Tripathi submitted their nominations. This was the first time in a long time that workers were swarming the AICC offices.
Anand Sharma, Bhupinder Hooda, Prithviraj Chavan, Manish Tewari, and Ashok Gehlot are among the proposers who have submitted 14 sets of nomination papers on Kharge’s behalf. Other proposers include A. K. Antony, Digvijaya Singh, Ambika Soni, Mukul Wasnik, and members of the G-23 ginger group.
After much controversy surrounding Ashok Gehlot’s bid for the position, the final frontrunners list has been released. He had to abandon his intentions to go to Delhi because his MLAs in Rajasthan staged a coup.
