Ashok Gehlot, who is going to contest the election for the post of Congress President, is also not giving up the temptation of the post of Chief Minister of Rajasthan. Along with taking over the command of Congress, he also wants to keep his hands on the power of Rajasthan. Rahul Gandhi has given a blow to Gehlot, who has expressed his desire to occupy both the posts. Rahul has made it clear by reminding him of the ‘one person one post’ formula that if he becomes the president, then the chair of Rajasthan will have to be vacated. It is believed that this approach of Rahul Gandhi can also clear the way for Sachin Pilot.
What Rahul Gandhi said during the press conference in Kochi during the Bharat Jodo Yatra is being considered as a big setback for Ashok Gehlot. Rahul Gandhi said that the decisions taken during the ‘Chintan Shivir’ in Udaipur, Rajasthan this year, which included one person-one post, are expected to be followed. Rahul said, “The decision we took in Udaipur, we hope that commitment will be kept.” Rahul was asked whether he stood by the decision taken in Udaipur Chintan Shivir.

Rahul Gandhi has once again made it clear that he is not going to contest for the post of President. In such a situation, among the people whose claim has come to the fore, Ashok Gehlot is considered to be the strongest candidate. If political experts are to be believed, Gehlot will be the toughest on Tharoor, who is not getting support even from his home state. Due to the strong possibility of Gehlot becoming the Congress President, there is a lot of speculation about change in Rajasthan. In such a situation, the question is also whether now Sachin Pilot will get the reward of patience? Former Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot has been waiting for a long time, for which Rahul Gandhi himself had praised him in the past.
Will Gehlot block the pilot’s path even if he had to leave the post?
The bitterness of Ashok Gehlot and Sachin Pilot is not hidden from anyone. Often both of them have been hurling rhetoric at each other. Gehlot has openly accused Sachin Pilot of trying to topple his government with the BJP many times.
