All Eyes On Kharge's Meeting With Ashok Gehlot, Sachin Pilot Today; Will Two Warring Leaders Come On One Platform?

Jaipur: All eyes are on Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge's meetings with Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and Sachin Pilot on today on Monday in Delhi. There are hopes that Kharge will be able to convince the two leaders to end the tussle but if he fails it could be disastrous for the Congress party as Pilot has given an ultimatum to fulfill his demands by May 31.    

The chief minister's office has also released Gehlot's programme confirming his visit to Delhi, where he will also lay foundation stone of the Rajasthan House. 


The proposed meeting comes close on the heels of Pilot's "ultimatum" that if three demands he made from the state government were not met by the end of this month, he would launch a state-wide agitation. 

Pilot has asked for a high-level inquiry into the alleged scams that took place during the tenure of the former Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje government, as one of his demands.

Party will try Karnataka formula?

It is being said that before the assembly elections to be held later this year, the Congress high command will try to bring Gehlot and Pilot on one platform. Reports also suggest that Congress President Kharge was successful in bringing together Siddaramaiah and DK Shivakumar in Karnataka and the party now wants to try the same formula in Rajasthan.

A meeting of the Congress top brass with all the state leaders was scheduled on May 26 but was later postponed. 

He also said that a few days ago a meeting of the Congress high command with the leaders of all poll-bound states, including Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Telangana, was planned, which was postponed.
