Sonia Gandhi likely to remain the Congress interim chief till 2024. Sources further added that Congress will appoint four working presidents with Ghulam Nabi Azad, Sachin Pilot, Kumari Selja, Mukul Wasnik and Ramesh Chennithala are in consideration. Sources have revealed that Rahul Gandhi will not be taking up the mantle again as Congress chief, since stepping down in 2019.
Keeping in mind the upcoming 2024 general elections, the Congress party is planning a major reshuffle in which Youth Congress leaders and Gandhi loyalists may get a significant role within the party organisation. The party is expected to appoint four working presidents, who will assist Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi in taking important decisions. Ghulam Nabi Azad, Sachin Pilot, Kumari Selja, Mukul Wasnik and Ramesh Chennithala are leading for the post of working president in Congress. Recently, sources revealed that the much-delayed election for the Congress president’s post will be held after the Monsoon session of Parliament. Moreover, sources revealed that former Madhya Pradesh CM Kamal Nath is the frontrunner to be the next Congress president. Congress’ longest-serving president Sonia Gandhi has not been very active in the public domain and had skipped campaigning for the recently concluded Assembly elections in Assam, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Puducherry and West Bengal.
