Notification for Cong's presidential election issued

Notification for Cong's presidential election issued

Each valid nomination paper has to be proposed by 10 state party unit delegates and a number of state units are likely to file nominations proposing Rahul Gandhi as their candidate for the presidential election.

Just days before Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi's elevation to the top post in the party, his party member Shehzad Poonawalla has criticized this decision as a mere "selection not an election". Modi had earlier said that Congress might lose the polls in Gujarat, but the Gandhi family would emerge victorious after Rahul becomes the party president.

Poonawalla had also told the media earlier that he would want to contest the party president election if it was conducted in a genuine manner.

The audio clip has purported conversation between Poonawalla and former Union Minister and senior Congress leader Manish Tewari. "Mr Poonawalla has not done anything for the party except hogging the limelight".

"I have got information that the delegates who are going to vote for the party president elections are fixed, its rigged". Even when Sonia Gandhi contested, Jitendra Prasad was opponent.

Of course, every word in the strongly-worded missive - his second in the last fortnight - Poonawalla dashed off to the Congress vice president is irrefutable. He is not even representing the state Congress party and hence. his statement is not so important.

"And finally, I want him to accept that our party must have a rule of one family-one ticket". In fact, Poonawalla himself appears to have anticipated it when he wrote in his first letter; "I understand a false campaign of misinformation and calumny will be launched against my family and me by those who seek to pull me down".

Moreover, Congress spokesperson Sachin Sawant went on to claim that Shehzad was not even an active member of the party and that there was no question of him being a leader or a member of the state Congress committee.

"If not, will you at least face your rival in a televised debate to see who articulates a better vision for the Congress party and India?"
