New Delhi: Mallikarjun Kharge, who recently emerged as the winner in the Congress presidential elections, defeated MP Shashi Tharoor in a landslide victory. Kharge is set to assume his new assignment as the party chief on October 26 at the AICC headquarters in Delhi. In fact, the date for a Congress Working Committee (CWC) has not been decided yet.

Kharge’s popularity in the party is proven by his victory margin. He received 7987 votes, while his opponent managed to get just 1072 votes. The voting took place on October 17, and over 9,000 Congress delegates from all over the country exercised their franchise to elect the new party chief. The counting occurred on October 19.

The veteran Congress leader and a party face in Karnataka, elected as the new party chief, marked an important day for the grand old party. He broke all barriers and became the first non-Gandhi party chief after 24 years.

In the first address after his victory, Kharge said, “We have to fight the fascist forces. We have to fight the forces that pretend to be democratic but attack democracy.”

However, a tough road is ahead for the senior leader because he has to revive the party, which is a daunting task in the present circumstances. The presence of the Congress party has been shrinking at the state and national level. In this situation, Kharge has to move a magical stick to bring back the old image of the party.

The upcoming elections in two states, Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh, will be Kharge’s first as party chief. Can he change the fate of Congress with his vast experience and shrewd strategy? The coming time will reveal everything. The party has to face several assembly polls next year and then a general election in 2024. The path is full of thorns, but Kharge has to prove his point why he deserves this post.
