Growing its numbers within the Lok Sabha by only eight since 2014, the Congress has to now cast off its leader within the decrease home and it remains to be seen if occasion chief Rahul Gandhi takes the role or some various leader is chosen. The Congress all another time does now not dangle numbers to acquire the placement of the Leader of Opposition within the Lok Sabha, as became the case in 2014.
If Rahul Gandhi decides now not to opt the submit, the occasion will desire to cast off a run-setter with sufficient seniority who’s ready to strongly insist issues. With the Congress having obtained essentially the most seats – 15 – in Kerala, adopted by eight in Tamil Nadu, there may perhaps be solid possibility that somebody from the south, which accounts for half of of the Congress’ quantity within the Lok Sabha, may perhaps presumably also unbiased be chosen, provided that the Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad hails from Jammu and Kashmir.
The names doing the rounds from Kerala encompass former Union Minister Shashi Tharoor, occasion’s Mavelikkara MP Suresh Kodikunnil, who will be into his seventh Lok Sabha term and Good sufficient Muraleedharan, the son of former Kerala Chief Minister Good sufficient Karunakaran and now in his fourth term as an MP.

Moreover, the role of the legislature occasion leader entails frequent presence within the Condo and it remains be seen if Rahul Gandhi can situation up, given his marketing campaign commitments.
The occasion will now not dangle some of its insist leaders from the outgoing Lok Sabha, including Kamal Nath, who’s now Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister, KC Venugopal, who’s now Frequent Secretary (Organisation), besides Jyotiraditya Scindia, Sushmita Dev and Deepender Hooda, who lost the election.
