Mallikarjun Kharge has won the Congress Presidential elections by a landslide with 7,897 votes, according to senior leader Pramod Tiwari.
Kharge will be the party’s first non-Gandhi president in 24 years.
By Tuesday evening, all sealed ballot boxes from the 68 polling booths set up across the country had been brought here and stored in a “strong room” at the party office. Pramod Tiwari, Kodikunil Suresh, Gaurav Gogoi, Syed Nasir Hussain, Kuljit Singh Bagra, and Gurdeep Singh Sappal are Kharge’s counting agents.
Among Tharoor’s supporters are Karti Chidambaram, Atul Chaturvedi, and Sumedh Gaikwal.
