New Delhi: According to strong media reports, The Congress high command has convinced Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot to carry out, the long-pending expansion and reshuffle of his Cabinet. Gehlot may include some of Sachin Pilot’s loyalists. This may cool down the tussle between Sachin Pilot and Ashok Gehlot.
Yesterday, Ashok Gehlot and Sachin Pilot arrived in New Delhi. According to the media reports, the issue of a Cabinet reshuffle, political appointments to various boards and corporations were discussed. Whereas, elections of 2023 in Rajasthan were also discussed.
Sachin Pilot met K C Venugopal (general secretory of AICC), in the morning and left for Rajasthan. Whereas, Gehlot met AICC general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra.
The Congress leadership is desperate for a Cabinet reshuffle in Rajasthan as Sachin Pilot’s supporters are not happy with the CM Ship of Gehlot. Whereas, Pilot himself is in a rebel tone against Gehlot after dismantling his Deputy CM post.
The party is probably suffering from their worst times. As loyalists are also unhappy with the Party Leadership and pilot’s close friend Jyotiraditya Scindia has already joined BJP.
