February 10, 2019: Congress President Rahul Gandhi Saturday met with party’s state presidents and legislature leaders to take stock of preparation for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. He told them that the party will not give Lok Sabha tickets to Rajya Sabha MPs, sitting MLAs and their family members. He also told them that the party would abide by the wishes of state units with regard to alliances.

According to sources, several state ministers are trying to “get their sons and daughters into the system” and the Congress president’s direction was aimed at curbing that practice. However, there is a caveat — there can always be exceptions and the Congress president will decide that.

There has been speculation that the son of Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath, Nakul, could be the Congress candidate from Chhindwara Lok Sabha constituency. The seat was vacated by Nath after he became the Chief Minister.

“Regarding candidate selection…, he (Rahul) guided to take broader steps to make them more inclusive and to ensure participation of maximum party stakeholders and workers. He also instructed to complete the candidate selection as soon as possible,” an official statement said.
