From Delhi to Punjab…a dent in the Congress vote bank
Political analysts also agree that if the Aam Aadmi Party elections in Gujarat will suffer the most, then it will be the Congress itself. Wherever the Aam Aadmi Party has contested elections, it has made a big dent in the Congress vote bank. In such a situation, the benefit of the anti-BJP vote split in the Gujarat assembly elections will go directly to the ruling party. Earlier, unauthorized colonies, slums and low-income groups in Delhi were considered the Congress vote bank. Kejriwal wrested the Delhi fort from the Congress on the basis of free electricity, water and Mohalla clinics. Following this, the Aam Aadmi Party also ousted the Congress from power in Punjab. In such a situation, the effectiveness of the appointment of Gehlot for the Congress, only the next results will tell.
Those who talked about the Gujarat model became the Prime Minister. What is the Gujarat model? It has arrived in front of the public. The Gujarat model was nothing, now the pole of that model has been exposed. This model has all the problems people are concerned about.

Rajasthan interference in Delhi
Ashok Gehlot, 71, is considered an experienced and skillful party strategist. Gehlot has the same say in Rajasthan politics as Delhi politics. There have been many such occasions during politics where Ashok Gehlot has played the role of a problem solver effectively fulfilling the responsibility given by the party. Ashok Gehlot’s experience can be gauged from the fact that he has worked with three Prime Ministers of Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi and Narasimha Rao. PM Modi also praises Gehlot for his political skill.
Party strategist in 2017
Ashok Gehlot was also the chief strategist of the party in Gujarat in the election of the year 2017. He has been winning elections continuously since 1997. The year 2017 was the weakest performance of the BJP. Gehlot’s strategy was behind the Congress’s challenge to the BJP in these elections. Apart from this, Ashok Gehlot also played an important role in ensuring the Rajya Sabha victory of late Congress leader Ahmed Patel. It was said that in 2017, the BJP would have lost the elections if PM Modi had not taken command of the election campaign at the last minute. This time too, the dominance of Rajasthan can be clearly seen in strategizing for the Congress in the Gujarat elections. Apart from Ashok Gehlot, the match has 32 observers out of Rajasthan’s 37. Of these, 18 are the ministers of the Rajasthan government. Apart from this, MPs from Rajasthan are also included. It is believed that only on the recommendation of these people, the party will distribute the ticket this time.
Congress has kept democracy alive in the country in the last 75 years, thanks to which today Modi is the Prime Minister of the country and Kejriwal is the Chief Minister of Delhi. The DNA of the Congress party and the country is the same before independence and after independence. Congress brings all religions and classes.

“Magic” in a kingdom dominated by Kshatriyas, Gujjars
Ashok Gehlot’s father Laxman Singh was a magician. Ashok Gehlot also tried his hand at this profession. After that, his magic played a lot in Rajasthan politics as well. A gardener by caste, Ashok Gehlot has carved a niche for himself in Kshatriyas and Jats-dominated Rajasthan politics, the story of his political prowess speaks for itself. Gehlot became the Chief Minister for the first time in 1998 when leaders like Parasram Maderna, Pandit Naval Kishore Sharma, Rajesh Pilot, Kunwar Natwar Singh, Balram Jakhar and Buta Singh were present in the state.
Ashok Gehlot is a very alert leader. So alert that if someone tries to feed them, they won’t take the first sip without giving it to a cat.

Gehlot does not forget the mistake of the opponents
Gehlot is said to not easily forget the mistake of any of his opponents. At the same time, he silently defeats all the bets of his opponents. Ashok Gehlot became the CM for the third time in Rajasthan in 2018. Sachin Pilot was appointed as the Deputy Chief Minister. Meanwhile, Sachin Pilot openly sounded the trumpet of rebellion against Gehlot. In this situation, it was the magic of Ashok Gehlot who deftly handled the rebellion against him in the match. He called a meeting of party MPs at his home which was attended by 102 out of 107 MPs.
When Gehlot showed magic in 2008
The magic of Ashok Gehlot is that he is the only Congress leader who has become the CM of Rajasthan thrice. Apart from this, he has also been the president of the state Congress three times. Gehlot has also been the youngest state president in the history of Rajasthan Congress. He was appointed head of the state Congress at the age of 34. In 2008, Congress won 96 seats out of 200. In this situation, Gehlot not only formed the government by joining 6 BSP MLAs with him, but also completed his five-year tenure. Ashok Gehlot is said to have a very low profile. However, when it comes to making big decisions, he doesn’t miss a thing. Be it Asaram’s arrest on rape charges in 2012 or Praveen Togadia, who was the leader of Vishwa Hindu Parishad in 2003, in jail.

Strong contenders for the post of President other than the Gandhi family
Ashok Gehlot is one of those loyal Congress leaders who have the confidence of Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi. There is also a discussion in the party about three or four names other than Rahul Gandhi or the Gandhi family to become the party president. Ashok Gehlot’s name is at the top of these names. However, Ashok Gehlot, Mukul Wasnik, Mallikarjun Kharge and Kumari Selja are some of the names that may be in the race for the post of president. However, Ashok Gehlot himself reportedly denied the first charge. Gehlot says Rahul Gandhi should take over as party president. Gehlot says it is not about Gandhi or the non-Gandhi family. This is the job of the organization. At the same time, former Gujarat Pradesh Congress president Bharat Singh Solanki has also demanded that Ashok Gehlot be made the party’s national president.
