On Monday in Delhi, the Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge will meet separately with the chief minister of Rajasthan, Ashok Gehlot, Sachin Pilot, according to a senior party official acquainted with the situation.
In addition, Gehlot’s schedule for his travel to Delhi, where he would also lay the cornerstone for the Rajasthan House, was made public by the chief minister’s office.
The intended meeting will soon follow Pilot’s “ultimatum” that he would start a statewide agitation if three requests he made of the state administration were not fulfilled by the end of this month.
One of Pilot’s demands is a high-level investigation into the alleged scams that occurred under the administration of the former Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje.
The senior leader claims that a meeting of the Congress’ top brass with all of the state leaders, which was originally set on May 26, was postponed.
In order to unify them in advance of the upcoming assembly elections, he added that the high command will now meet with Gehlot and Pilot individually.
According to the senior source, Kharge was successful in uniting Siddaramaiah and D K Shivakumar in Karnataka, and the party now intends to apply the same strategy there.
A conference with the leaders of all states that will soon have elections, including Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, and Telangana, was scheduled by the Congress high command a few days ago, but it was postponed.
