In the Congress’s Chintan Shivir held in Udaipur, Rajasthan this month, some decisions were taken for the ‘Uday’ of the party. One of these decisions was that the youth would be given large-scale participation. But that doesn’t seem to be happening. 55 Rajya Sabha seats are falling vacant in 11 states of the country. Congress is in a position to win 11 of these seats, but the race has started. Most of the experienced faces of the party are claiming their candidature. In such a situation, the question also arises that what will happen to the Congress’s resolve to give opportunities to the youth.
Due to the departure of Kapil Sibal, the pressure on the leadership increased
Not only this, the party leadership is also under pressure after the exit of Kapil Sibal, who resigned from the Congress on 16 May. He has also filed nomination as an independent candidate supported by Samajwadi Party to be elected Rajya Sabha MP from Uttar Pradesh. While Mukul Wasnik is in the race to go to Rajya Sabha from Maharashtra, the tenure of former Finance and Home Ministers P. Chidambaram, Jairam Ramesan, Ambika Soni, Vivek Tankha, Pradeep Tamta and Chhaya Verma is also ending. All these leaders are expected to go to Rajya Sabha once again.

High command also agreed on Chidambaram and Jairam Ramesh
The party high command also seems to agree on two of these senior leaders P. Chidambaram and Jairam Ramesh. According to sources, P. Chidambaram can be sent to Rajya Sabha from Tamil Nadu and Jairam Ramesh from Karnataka. However, it remains to be seen whether Ambika Soni, who has been a MP for 5 times, gets a chance again or not. Apart from this, there is talk of sending Ghulam Nabi Azad from Rajasthan and Anand Sharma is also not considering himself out of the race. Randeep Surjewala and Ajay Maken, who are said to be part of Team Rahul Gandhi, are also claiming.
Anand Sharma from Haryana is also in the race
At present, the Congress has 29 members in the Rajya Sabha. Now the Congress hopes that it will win two to three seats from Rajasthan. Apart from this, it is in a position to win two seats in Chhattisgarh. On the other hand, Jharkhand, Maharashtra, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh and Karnataka are also in a position to win 1 seat each. Talking about Haryana, Anand Sharma can get the support of former CM Bhupinder Singh Hooda. But Surjewala, Kumari Selja and Kuldeep Vishnoi are also contending against him.
