(Express photo by Anil Sharma)With days left for the opening of a week-long window for filing of nomination papers for the Congress presidential elections, the party, for the first time, signalled Wednesday that Rahul Gandhi is not likely to contest.

Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, meanwhile, met party chief Sonia Gandhi and said he will contest for the top post if the leadership asks him to do so. He also made it clear that he wants to continue as Chief Minister.

Lok Sabha MP Shashi Tharoor too began the groundwork for filing his nomination papers. He met Madhusudan Mistry, chairman of the Congress Central Election Authority, at the AICC headquarters and discussed election rules and procedures including filing of nomination and campaigning. He also had a look at the electoral roll of around 9,000 PCC delegates who will vote in the election.

Former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Digvijaya Singh indicated that he too could throw his hat in the ring. Asked for his preference between Gehlot and Tharoor, Singh told NDTV 24×7: “Let the last date of nomination be over… then we will know that is the choice… I am not ruling myself also. Why do you want to keep me out?”.

While Gehlot continued to maintain that he will enter the fray if Rahul does not, the party made it clear that the former Congress president has no plans of filing nomination papers.
