Congress president elections: here’s what Shashi Tharoor has to say on running for the post

Shashi Tharoor has shared his thoughts on how the party should have announced polls to fill up dozens of vacant posts in CWC. 

After news reports of Senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor exploring the possibility of running for the post of Congress president surfaced, the Thiruvananthapuram MP has reacted to the news, finally.

Tharoor, on Monday had penned an article in Malayalam daily Mathrubhumi. The content of the article had sparked speculations around the Congress leader running for party presidency post.

Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, the congress leader said “I've absolutely no comment to make. I accept what I've written in my article which is that an election would be a good thing for the Congress party,”reported The Hindustan Times.

Furthermore, Shashi Tharoor has shared his thoughts on how the party should have announced polls to fill up dozens of vacant posts in the Congress Working Committee.

As reported by Hindustan Times, Tharoor in the Malayalam daily has said "Allowing members of the party drawn from the AICC and PCC delegates to determine who will lead the party from these key positions, would have helped legitimise the incoming set of leaders and give them a credible mandate to lead the party”.

Notably, the grand old party is struggling with several leaders quitting the party citing various issues.

The grand old party is set to hold president elections on October 17. The post has been with the Gandhis for over two decades now.
