The name of Digvijaya Singh, a long-time Gandhi loyalist, had emerged as the frontrunner for the Congress party top post following a rebellion staged by Ashok Gehlot loyalists. The names of Mallikarjuna Kharge, A K Antony, Kamal Nath, and Ambika Soni also cropped up, but most of them ruled themselves out of the race. Thiruvananthapuram MP Shashi Tharoor is also in the race for the presidential election, scheduled on October 17.

The political drama started after Gehlot loyalists opposed the elevation of Sachin Pilot to the state's top job if the former gets elected as the party chief because of the his rebellion against the CM back in 2020.

The party had issued notices to three loyalists of Ashok Gehlot over their actions in the political crisis in the state.
