Ashok Gehlot: The future chief executive of Rajasthan will be chosen by the leadership

Ashok Gehlot says he does not want to leave the Rajasthan CM post for a lifetime . He said the Congress leadership would make a decision on his successor .

Ashok Gehlot characterized the debate as unnecessary, claiming that he does not want to leave the Rajasthan CM post for a lifetime, and said that his earlier claim that he should take over Congress while remaining in Jaipur has been misinterpreted, and has retorted from his earlier contention that he could take over the reins of Congress while retaining his position.He said the Congress leadership would make a decision on his successor, but that it would also decide on the route's timing, which was crucial.Gehlot, who had gone to Kochi to try to convince Rahul Gandhi in a last ditch attempt, said his attempts fell apart, and that he (Gehlot) will run for Congress presidents.We respect workers' sentiments, but the CM said we've decided that this time a non-Gandhi-family member will be the party president.
