Later, talking to the media, CM Baghel said: "Chhattisgarh Congress Committee and Rajasthan Cong Committee has made this proposal. It has been done in 2 states but if this proposal comes from other states too, then Rahul ji should rethink this matter."

Earlier while addressing the media during the Congress's ongoing nationwide Bharat Jodo Yatra, Rahul Gandhi had said, "Whether I become president of Congress or not will become clear when the elections for the president post take place. But, I have clearly decided what I will do and there is no confusion in my mind."
