Senior Congress leader CP Joshi won the 2018 Rajasthan Assembly election from Nathdwara seat. Joshi is only the second leader in the history of Indian politics who has a dubious record of losing an election by mere one vote. During the Rajasthan assembly elections in 2008, CP Joshi was defeated by a single vote on Nathdwara seat in Rajsamand district. Later, it was revealed that CP Joshi's wife could not vote as she was visiting a temple on the polling day. Joshi, who graduated from MB College Udaipur in Law, also has Masters degree in Physics. He also completed his Masters and Ph.D. degrees in Psychology. Before joining politics full time, CP Joshi was a Professor of Psychology at Udaipur's Mohanlal Sukhadia University. CP Joshi has also served as Minister of Railways (May 2013-June 2013), Minister of Road Transport and Highways (January 2011-June 2013) in the Congress-led UPA goverment.read more
Senior Congress leader C P Joshi is set to be the speaker of the 15th Rajasthan Assembly, party sources said on Monday.
Joshi regetted his remarks only on Friday after Congress President Rahul Gandhi called for the party leader's apology and said the views expressed by the AICC general secretary were contrary to the morals of the Congress party.
Accusing the Congress of “dividing every religion for power”, the BJP alleged that Joshi had “insulted the Indian culture as well as the Hindu religion”.
Urging party leaders to not make statements that could hurt any section of the society, Rahul Gandhi took to Twitter to express disappointment as he publicly called for an apology by Congress leader CP Joshi.
While Joshi bagged 19 votes, Ruchir was able to garner 14 votes in a tough contest. Joshi was a minister in the Manmohan Singh government. This is the second time that Joshi has become RCA president.
“Due to faulty foreign diplomacy of the BJP-led government, US, China and Russia are seen standing with Pakistan,” Joshi alleged.
