Amid infight, in the Rajasthan Congress, the issues related to cabinet expansion and political appointments were discussed in marathon meetings between CM Ashok Gehlot and state in-charge Ajai Makan in Jaipur on Tuesday late at night and on Wednesday morning. Now the aspirant leaders are waiting for results.
In the meantime, former deputy Cm Sachin Pilot has expressed full faith in Makan while on the other hand one of the dissident MLAs has said that if speaking up for our rights is a suicide, we will do it again.
State in-charge general secretary of the Congress Ajai Makan was on two days visit to Jaipur. The sources in the party said that he had come with a formula to adjust the dissident faction in cabinet and key political appointments to pacify the in-fight of the party. Gehlot and Makan were in a meeting for more than three hours on Tuesday late at night and on for one hour on Wednesday morning. ‘We are discussing everything but I can not disclose it. Everything will be done with the consent of all. Nectar comes out if churning,’ said Makan to media. He left for Delhi after meeting Gehlot.
Sources say that this was the first of this kind of meeting after the start of the current turmoil so workers are hopeful for a good result, although everything depends on CM Gehlot and it seems to be difficult for him to open this pandora’s box at this point as this will give birth to new dissidents and other problems.
In the meantime, former deputy CM Sachin Pilot has said ‘we want that the honour and dignity of the workers should be protected and hope that party and government are working on this. I have full faith in what Makan has said as he is a responsible person working for the organization.
While on the other hand one of the dissident MLAs Ved Praksh Solanki has said that we are speaking up for workers and if going to Delhi for voicing our rights is suicide then we will do it again and again.
