Congressional Presidential Election: Manish Tewari, a member of the ‘G23’, a group of leaders who talked about changes in the Congress, on Friday called for a consensus on the post of Congress president. Today is the last day for filing nominations for the post of Congress President. “Leadership, ideological clarity, discourse and transparent access to resources are the pillars of ‘a’ political party,” Tiwari tweeted.
He said that in view of recent developments, the Congress should follow the words of former President Pranab Mukherjee and work for consensus building and effective leadership. Tewari echoed Mukherjee’s words that elections should not be held for certain posts, they should be decided by consensus, and the post of Congress president is also one of them.
“The old practice of inviting a prominent person to preside over the annual session of Congress and that person continuing in office until the next annual session was truly remarkable,” he said. I have always tried that anyone should be unanimously elected to the post of Congress President.
Meanwhile, after Digvijay Singh was out of the running, the battle is now between Mallikarjun Kharge and Shashi Tharoor. Senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor paid tribute to Mahatma Gandhi at Rajghat on Friday ahead of filing his nomination for the party’s presidential election. Tharoor tweeted: “Tributes this morning to the personality who paved the way for the 21st century for India.” Echoing the words of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, he said, “India is an old but a young nation. I dream of India being strong, independent, self-reliant and ahead of all the nations of the world in the service of humanity.
