Amid queries on whether his move to Delhi for the role of Congress president, for which he is being seen as a preferred choice of the Gandhis, would lead to an opening for Sachin Pilot in Rajasthan, CM Gehlot said that one person can remain a minister and also be elected Congress president. He also reportedly claimed that he can easily juggle not one, but three posts.
With all of this happening in the backdrop, Gehlot on Wednesday held a two-hour-long meeting with Congress chief Sonia Gandhi and had a long discussion that is viewed to have touched upon the upcoming presidential poll and other related issues.
Meanwhile, around a dozen state units of the party seem to be wanting something else. The Congress in Punjab and Telangana joined the list of state units on Wednesday to pass resolutions backing Rahul Gandhi for the post of the party president even as it appears that after over two decades, the party is likely to see a contest for the top post.
