Jaipur: The political tussle in the Rajasthan Congress has once again begun. Reports of a clash between CM Ashok Gehlot and senior Congress leader Sachin Pilot have once again started appearing in the media. Sources claim that former Rajasthan Deputy CM Sachin Pilot met Sonia Gandhi and demanded the removal of Ashok Gehlot from the cm's post. At the same time, Ashok Gehlot is also being told the reason behind the non-joining of election strategist Prashant Kishor.
Media reports quoting sources said that Sachin Pilot has held three meetings with the Gandhi family in the past few days. It is being told that during this time, Pilot told the Congress high command that a Punjab-like situation will arise in Rajasthan if Gehlot is delayed in removal. Sources also say that Sachin Pilot has also demanded Sonia to make herself the chief minister. Sachin Pilot has made it clear to Congress interim President Sonia Gandhi that if the Congress government in Rajasthan has to be repeated, Ashok Gehlot will have to be removed from the cm's post.
Before Pilot, Sonia Gandhi had called Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot to meet him in New Delhi. Five days ago, on April 23, at a function of the Revenue Service Council in Jaipur, CM Gehlot had said that his resignation has been kept with Permanent Sonia Gandhi since 1998. When the CM has to be changed, no one will even have kano-ear news. This work will be done overnight. There will be no discussion on this. Sonia Gandhi is free to take a decision. So don't pay attention to rumours.
