Chidambaram or Digvijay, who will be the Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha? The post has been vacated by Kharge’s resignation.

Senior Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge, who is contesting for the post of National President, has resigned as the Leader of the Opposition in the Rajya Sabha. Sources gave this information on Saturday. The names of many leaders are coming to the fore for the post that was vacated by Kharge’s resignation. Let us tell you that in May this year, the Congress party had announced its new principle of ‘one person, one post’ at a Chintan Shivir held in Udaipur.

After Mallikarjun Kharge, the names of senior Congress leaders P Chidambaram and Digvijay Singh are running for the Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha. Let us tell you that Digvijay Singh had also announced to contest the election of Congress President. However, he withdrew his name after Mallikarjun Kharge’s name surfaced. Sources say that Pramod Tiwari is also in the race for the post of Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha.

On Friday, the stage was set for the contest between Mallikarjun Kharge and Shashi Tharoor for the post of Congress President. Karnataka’s Dalit leader Kharge seems to be the strongest candidate. Former Jharkhand minister KN Tripathi had also nominated for the post, which has been rejected.
