Only Rahul Gandhi can challenge PM Narendra Modi: Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot
JAIPUR: Jaipur chief minister Ashok Gehlot on Wednesday said that efforts continued till the last minute to persuade Rahul Gandhi to become Congress president because he is the only one who can challenge Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP government.
"Only Rahul can challenge Modi...": Ashok Gehlot said on the day Mallikarjun Kharge took charge as Congress president. He further said that it was Rahul's desire that for once a non-Gandhi became the president of the party. However, till the last minute, efforts were made to make Rahul Gandhi the party president as only he can challenge Modi and the BJP government," said Gehlot.
Gehlot was in Delhi to attend the function where Kharge officially took charge of the party president at the Congress headquarters.
"The leadership that Sonia Gandhi gave for 22 years will always be remembered. We all had requested her in 1998 to take over as the party president, otherwise the party will be shattered. She took the challenge in the interest of the Congress party despite having language issues. After that, she was Congress president for 22 years and the governments were formed in 13 states at that time. She performed very well as a party chief that which no one can forget," added the chief minister who was initially the favourite for the post of president.
The chief minister also congratulated Mallikarjun Kharge and promised to work to strengthen the party.

Rahul Gandhi is incapable, inefficient, disorganized, egoistic and arrogant. He is not fit even for a chaprasi job.

well said. He did not even serve at the village panchayat level at any position to know how to serve. He was so arrogant that he did not take a job in the MMS cabinet lest he would fail and tarnish his image. Now the Gandhi clan cronies many of them old that they were part of the cabal that toppled Narasimha Rao from continuing his good work and hence paved the way for Modi to do the needed further reforms. These cronies of the Gandhi clan do not care for the nation and allow new leadership in the Congress party from the youths of india.

If only Rahul Gandhi is capable of challenging Narendra Modi, it implies others including Ashok Gehlot are just useless. So why don't they resign from Congress?

There is no leader in opposition to challenge Modiji. Modiji is majority of nationalists excepted nationalist and secular leader of India. Rahul gandhi is too small yet grow mentally politically.

I thought Gehlot was a magician at some time, that he is a comedian is a good news as he can replace the now jailed Sidhu.

No matter who says the truth it must be accepted, biggest crisis facing the Congress party is that is not Rahul Gandhi's incompetence but the old leadership including you are not handing over power to the new generation. To understand Rahul Gandhi's popularity just watch the Bharat Jodo Yatra is being embraced by people across the country without consider caste, religion, race, country and language, and he is receiving an acceptance throughout the journey unlike any political leader in India in recent times.

Except for his surname, this man has no other qualification. Sadly, the servile attitude of his party members is solely responsible for making him believe that he deserves the top post.
