- Congress party is preparing for a comprehensive change at the top level
- Next President may be made outside the Gandhi family
- If this happens, Rahul Gandhi can become the Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha
- There is also a proposal to keep the command in the hands of Sonia Gandhi till 2024.
In the next few days, there may be major changes at the top level in the Congress. Its impact can be seen from the organization to the states. Amidst all the conflicting voices rising within the party and pressure from other allies, the party now wants to show itself in an active mode. According to sources, three formulas have been fixed for major changes in the party.
Under this, the party can get the post of president from a non-Gandhi family. Its choice is being made because Rahul Gandhi is still sticking to his point of making someone different from the family as the president. In such a situation, if this pressure continues, then the party is now preparing itself for this too.
Rahul can become Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha
In such a situation, Rahul Gandhi himself may be ready to become the Leader of the Opposition in the Lok Sabha. Under the second formula, the party can insist on making Sonia Gandhi the full-time president by 2024. Under the third formula, only Rahul Gandhi can be pressured to become the party president again. According to party sources, Rahul had a constant option of regaining the party leadership, but he himself is not ready for the post.

Now ‘spark of factionalism’ in Haryana Congress
In Haryana, the ruckus that broke out within the opposition Congress has now come on the streets. 22 MLAs of former CM Bhupinder Singh Hooda faction opened a front against Kumari Selja on Monday. All of them met the party’s national organization general secretary K.C. in Delhi. Venugopal met. Their demand was that Hooda should be made the state president by replacing Shailja. The pro-Hooda MLAs argue that the exit of INLD supremo Om Prakash Chautala may lead to a dent in the Jat vote bank. Hooda needs to be given a ‘free-hand’ to stop Chautala.
