Congress president polls: Mallikarjun Kharge resigns as LoP Rajya Sabha | India News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Senior Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge, who on Thursday filed his nomination for the Congress president polls, has tendered his resignation as the Leader of Opposition (LoP) in Rajya Sabha.
“I hereby tender my resignation from the post of Leader of Opposition, Rajya Sabha, consequent upon my filing of nomination for the post of President, All India Congress Committee,” Kharge said in his letter to Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi.
Kharge’s resignation is seen as keeping with the Congress party’s declaration of ‘One Leader One Post’ taken at its Udaipur ‘Chintan Shivir’.
Veteran Congressmen Digvijaya Singh and P Chidambaram are seen as the likely replacement for Kharge in the Rajya Sabha.
Election for the Congress president is due on October 17. Kharge is widely tipped as being backed by the Gandhi family, is the favourite to win the election.
The 80-year-old leader had received support from nearly 30 Congress leaders including Deepender Hooda, Salman Khurshid, Ashok Gehlot, Digvijaya Singh, Manish Tewari, Prithviraj Chavan, and several others.
Former Madhya Pradesh CM Digvijaya Singh, who dropped out of the Congress presidential race on Friday, has extended his support to Kharge.
Singh was the second Congress leader to pull out of the race after Rajasthan chief minister Ashok Gehlot amid political turmoil in his state. Gehlot said he would be the proposer for Kharge.
The results for the party’s chief post will be declared on October 19 after the counting (if required).
With the Gandhis not in the running for the top post this time around, the old party is all set to get a non-Gandhi president after over 25 years.
