Congress insists Ashok Gehlot to include Sachin Pilot supporters in Rajasthan cabinet: Reports

New Delhi/IBNS: Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot met the party's central leaders in Delhi on Wednesday to discuss the issue of accommodating supporters of Sachin Pilot into the state cabinet.

NDTV quoting sources said the Congress high command is keen to make the reshuffle happen immediately to accommodate supporters of Pilot.

According to reports, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, Congress general secretary KC Venugopal, and party in-charge for Rajasthan, Ajay Maken, were present at the meeting in Rahul Gandhi's residence.

Rahul Gandhi, however, did not attend the meeting.

"The discussion involved cabinet reshuffle and appointments in the state corporations, which Mr Gehlot has been delaying for over a year," NDTV quoting sources reported.

Accommodating Pilot's supporters in the cabinet was seen as part of the peace formula which was carved out last year when the Pilot camp revolted.

The rebellion had brought the Ashok Gehlot government on verge of collapse.

Pilot, seen to be the reason behind the party's revival in Rajasthan, was a contender for the Chief Minister's post.

But he was persuaded by Rahul Gandhi to take the job of Ashok Gehlot's deputy after the Congress party emerged victorious in the 2018 assembly polls.

The friction between the two has continued since.
