Gehlot, Pilot to be under one roof
If he attends the meeting, it will be the first time after December last year that both Sachin Pilot and Gehlot will be seen together.
“The meeting isn’t just of Rajasthan but of other states also. The meeting is called to discuss election strategy for the upcoming polls and what needs to be done in these states for fruitful results,” said Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa, state party in charge.
On the internal fight of Congress in the election year, Randhawa said, “We will resolve the issues and curb the fight.”
When asked about Pilot's participation in the meeting, he replied, “Do you have any doubt on this? Is he not a leader of the Congress party? You will get the answer in the meeting.”
