Congress president election: Mapanna Mallikarjun Kharge, a staunch Gandhi family loyalist, is set to become the first non-Gandhi Congress chief in 24 years as he defeated his rival Shashi Tharoor in the party president election. The 80-year-old Kharge will succeed incumbent interim Congress president Sonia Gandhi. 

Meanwhile, all eyes would be on former Congress president Rahul Gandhi, who is being produced as a prime face of the party in the ongoing ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’. 

When a journalist questioned Rahul Gandhi about his role under a new party president at a press conference held by Gandhi in Kulnoor, Andhra Pradesh, he said the new Congress president will decide what his role will be in the party and how he is to be deployed.

 "I can't comment on Congress president's role, that's for Mr Kharge to comment on. The president will decide what my role is...", said Congress MP Rahul Gandhi who is heading ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ which is seen a massive initiative by the grand old party to attract electoral fortune ahead of Lok Sabha elections 2022.
