Rahul Gandhi made the feedback a lot forward of the election outcomes had been introduced.

New Delhi:

Congress chief Jairam Ramesh on Wednesday defended Rahul Gandhi for referring to veteran chief Mallikarjun Kharge as the brand new Congress president even earlier than the results of the get together election was introduced. The path of voting was fairly clear when Mr Gandhi made the remark on the press meet, Mr Ramesh mentioned, criticising “inaccurate media reviews” over Mr Gandhi’s remark.

“The brand new president will resolve what my position will likely be. Ask Kharge ji and Sonia ji,” Rahul Gandhi mentioned to a query on his position within the get together.  

Rahul Gandhi, who led the get together’s ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ into Andhra Pradesh, made the feedback throughout a press meet round 1.30 pm, at a time when the counting was on. Outcomes weren’t declared till round 2 pm.

“I can not touch upon the Congress president’s position, that is for Mr Kharge to touch upon,” Rahul Gandhi mentioned about what the brand new president will do whereas he stays the face of the get together. “I’m very clear so far as my position is worried. The president will resolve what my position is and the way I’m to be deployed… that it’s a must to ask Kharge ji and Sonia ji.”

“The ultimate authority within the Congress get together is the Congress president. And we may have a brand new Congress president. And that gentleman will resolve precisely how the get together strikes ahead,” he added.

A staunch Gandhi household loyalist, Mallikarjun Kharge, 80, was broadly seen as a frontrunner even earlier than votes had been solid on October 17 for the Congress to get its first non-Gandhi chief in over 20 years. Mr Kharge was reported to have the assist of senior leaders within the get together, together with Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, who was the primary alternative for the Gandhis.

Mr Kharge’s rival Shashi Tharoor had complained about “bias” and “uneven taking part in area” within the run-up to the elections. The Congress MP from Kerala had alleged “extraordinarily severe irregularities” as votes had been counted in Uttar Pradesh and demanded that votes within the state be cancelled. “We didn’t contest this election to just accept enterprise as typical,” mentioned crew Tharoor.

Mallikarjun Kharge was declared the winner of the election. The entire counted votes had been 9,385, of which Mr Kharge obtained 7,897 votes and Mr Tharoor polled 1,072 votes, chairman of the get together’s Central Election Committee (CEC) Madhusudan Mistry mentioned. That is for the primary time in 24 years that Congress has received a chief who doesn’t belong to the Nehru-Gandhi household.
