Amidst reports that MP Shashi Tharoor is considering contesting for the post of the Congress national president, party leaders in his home state Kerala Tuesday indicated that the state unit is in favour of Rahul Gandhi becoming the chief.
Senior Congress leader and former Opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala told the media in Alappuzha that the general feeling of the party in Kerala is that Rahul Gandhi, also the MP from Wayanad in northern Kerala, should become the president. “The state unit of the party has not suggested any candidate. The massive turnout of the people and the party workers during the Bharat Jodo Yatra demonstrates the support for Rahul. It is up to Tharoor to speak out whether he is contesting to become the party national president,’’ said Chennithala. Earlier, the Congress units in Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and Gujarat had passed resolutions to make Rahul the party chief.
