During an inaugural address at an orientation programme for party spokespersons and panellists, Mr Nath made it clear that the party will not project anyone as its chief ministerial face for the assembly elections expected later this year.
"The state's oppressed farmer, unprotected women and the jobless youth would be the party's face. The Congress would fight the election with these lakh of faces," he said.
Kamal Nath also said that every section of society was fed-up with the Bharatiya Janata Party government which was in no state to respond to the common people's questions. He said this time the people would seek an account for the lies and broken promises they had faced.
Mr Nath was appointed as president of Madhya Pradesh Congress unit in April this year. Jyotiraditya Scindia has been tasked to head the campaign committee chief. The two command their own loyal followers who have been known in the past to work against each other.
Both Kamal Nath and his party colleague and former Union minister Jyotiraditya Scindia have been lobbying hard to project themselves as the chief ministerial candidate.
But another view in the party is that the Congress traditionally doesn't project chief ministerial candidates.
The party high command is reportedly worried naming a chief ministerial candidate will intensify the infighting among the two groups.
