Rajasthan News: State Congress in-charge Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa's statement: 'People of old age should give up the attraction of the chair on their own. There is no need to say this. There cannot be a cutoff age in politics. Congress is such a party, which gives opportunity to the youth. Congress walks with elderly and experienced leaders. Keep taking the youth forward.

Statement of senior Congress leader and MLA Bharat Singh Kundanpur: 'Gehlot ji himself should hold a press conference and say that I am not the chief minister's claimant. Will forward new people. Tomorrow itself the map will turn. This attachment is illusion, it does not leave. Someone told me not to contest the next election. I am saying that I will not contest elections. The Chief Minister should say this. Forward the son to become MLA. Let new people come forward.

With these statements coming one after the other, the debate between young and old leaders has once again started in the Congress. That too at a time when the tussle between young and experienced leaders is at its peak in the state.

Randhawa also claimed in the statement that the Congress is a party that gives opportunities to the youth. On Randhawa's statement, we scanned the ages of all the 106 MLAs including all the ministers of the Congress government. This revealed that Randhawa's statement was nothing more than just a statement. He had said that people of old age should resign on their own. If this happens in reality, then 45 MLAs above 60 years of age will have to resign, including many big names.

75 out of 106 MLAs are over 50

The Congress currently has a total of 106 MLAs in the government. Of these, 30 are ministers. There are 14 women MLAs in these MLAs. On the other hand, if we talk about ministers, there are 3 women ministers.

Out of 106 MLAs, 75 Congress MLAs are those whose age is 50 years or more. There are only 31 MLAs whose age is less than 50 years. On the other hand, if we talk about ministers, then out of 30, 26 are those whose age is 50 or more. Ashok Chandna, Bhanwar Singh Bhati, Tikaram Julie and Saleh Mohammad are the only ones below 50 years of age. Among them, Ashok Chandna is the only sports minister below 40 years of age.

This was the resolution: The Congress had taken a resolution at the Chintan Shivir held in Udaipur last year that maximum opportunities would be given to the youth in the party. There will be 50 percent people under the age of 50 in both the government and the organization. These include both tickets and organization positions. Congress will implement this formula from 2024. But on this basis, when we look at the share of power in Rajasthan Congress, then the situation appears somewhat different.
