Pune Engineer wants to be Congress president, claims to have ‘blueprint to revive’ the party

“As Rahul Gandhi is firm on his decision to step down as the president of the Congress, the party is in a great confusion over whom to appoint the new chief and in such a scenario, I wish to file my nomination for the post,” Hosale told PTI.

Gajanand Hosale, a Pune based engineer, has put forward his candidacy for the top-post of the Congress party after Rahul Gandhi resigned as its president recently. The electronics engineer claims to have the “blueprint to revive” the Congress party. He is likely to submit his application to the city unit president of Congress, Ramesh Bagwe, on the 23rd of July.

“As Rahul Gandhi is firm on his decision to step down as the president of the Congress, the party is in a great confusion over whom to appoint the new chief and in such a scenario, I wish to file my nomination for the post,” Hosale told PTI. “As (Rahul) Gandhi said that the party needs young leadership, I feel that the party needs a president who is not only young by age, but also at heart and in terms of thinking as well,” he said.

Hosale said that the revival of the Congress party is the need of the hour and a young leadership is necessary for it. Interestingly, he is not even a Congress member yet. Therefore, he will apply for primary membership of the party first.

“Before applying for the president’s position on Tuesday, I will complete the procedure of primary membership of the party,” he said. He stated further, “As a party president, my thrust will be on transparency and given a chance, I am sure I will revive the party from the current crisis as I have a blueprint for it.”

Hosale is from a rural background and is currently working as a manager in a manufacturing facility. He has stated that he has no experience in politics.
