As per an unverified audiotape that has been doing the rounds since today afternoon, Maharashtra Congress Chief Ashok Chavan has said that hes contemplating resignation. Chavan, as per the audiotape, is in conversation with a party worker named Rajurkar from Chandrapur.
In the audiotape, Chavan has clearly expressed his displeasure over Vinayak Bagde ? the candidate selected by Congress in Chandrapur for the upcoming Lok Sabha 2019 elections. Chavan is heard saying that nobody listens to him in the party and hence hes thinking of resigning.
However, Chavan neither accepted nor denied the alleged communication. He said that it was a ?personal? conversation between two party workers and the party’s decision was final. Chavan said,, We haven’t been able to bring all Congress workers on the same page but the party’s decision is final. There are complaints about the Chandrapur seat. I don’t want to discuss the party’s internal matter in the public.

Party worker: Good morning sir
Ashok Chavan: Good morning. Who is speaking?
Party worker: This is Rajurkar from Chandrapur.
Chavan: Yes, tell me.
Party worker: Sir, Vinayak Bagde has been given the ticket in Chandrapur. Our candidate could have surely got elected in Maharashtra.
Chavan: I agree with what you’re saying but you talk to Mukul Wasnik. People there do not understand.
Party worker: But sir, Vinayak Bangde?
Chavan: I’m with you; please try and understand.
Party worker: But Mukul Wasnik is no one in front of you. You handle entire Maharashtra.
Chavan: I agree with you but no one is listening to me. I tried to explain too. I am also planning to resign.
Party worker: That seat is in trouble.

Shashi Tharoor is capable of bringing Congress back in power, says Congress leader Ashish Deshmukh
Former MLA and Member of Parliamentary Board, MPCC Dr Ashish Deshmukh speaking about the nomination filed by Congress MP Shashi Tharoor for the post of Congress President on Friday, said, “Dr Shashi Tharoor is a popular Congress MP who has done remarkable work for the nation at the international level. It’s very welcoming thing that the election of Congress President is being done in a democratic manner. This is an important step for decentralisation in the party and the future of Congress is bright. Soniaji and Rahulji Gandhi contributed a lot to strengthen the party.”
Congress leader Deshmukh added, “This is an important step taken by the Congress elites for the elections in a democratic manner so that the party can take a higher flight. Dr Shashi Tharoor has cordial relations with everyone in the party; he has the ability to give a new direction to the party. I believe that he will be able to handle the responsibility of bringing the Congress to power in the country by taking the party forward with new strength. If he seriously deals with issues like unemployment, industry, agriculture, inflation then Congress will have fruitful days. By doing transparent politics, he will definitely convey the thought of Congress to the people at the grassroots level. If you want a rejuvenated, bigger and dynamic Congress party, Dr. Shashi Tharoor is the right candidate. He has the open support of Congress delegates in 12 states and is getting the support of Congress leaders and activists from all over India. He will be elected for sure.”
Deshmukh informed that Tharoor would be visiting Nagpur on October 1 and 2 to hear out all thoughts of Congress delegates.
Nagpur citizens to revel The Raaas Garba next year!
Since The Raaas enchanted and enthralled Nagpur with its quality garba in its first year in 2018, the demand for encore has been reverberating the city. To cater to the huge public demand, the organisers of the king of garbas have decided to continue The Raaas next year on. Like its first year, The Raaas Garba will be presented to Nagpur in association with Nation Next in 2023. Mahesh Kukreja, the key organiser said, “Because of some reasons, we, earlier, thought of giving the event a break.”
He added, “Then COVID-19 struck the world. Now we plan to continue it from next year onwards. While I express my gratitude to Nagpurians to make the event a huge hit, I request the city’s garba revellers to not get fooled as a few garbas are falsely claiming to be The Raaas. We’ll be back next year for sure!”
