After Sachin Pilot’s return and the end of month-long political crisis, the biggest challenge for Rajasthan Congress is to revamp the organisational structure and to accommodate loyalists from both Ashok Gehlot and Pilot camps.
Sachin Pilot and Rajasthan Chief Minister Gehlot shook hands in a moment marking the return of the sacked deputy chief minister and 18 other dissident MLAs to the party-fold, after the intervention earlier this week by the top Congress leadership
Even though the Congress party has brokered an understanding between Gehlot and Pilot factions for now, there are various challenges that lie ahead for smooth functioning of the government in Rajasthan.
Pilot has reportedly been invited for a meeting with Gehlot at the latter's residence in Japiur, the first after the estranged leader's return to the Congress-fold nearly a month after he openly rebelled against Gehlot with 18 other party MLAs.
In an exclusive interview with Satish Padmanabhan, Congress veteran Ashok Gehlot speaks about his government's plans for Rajasthan, Hindutva and the possible outcome of the forthcoming general elections.
