Rajasthan Congress leader Sachin Pilot met with party colleagues Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi today for a second time in less than a week. Mr Pilot is likely to get an organisational post in a state where elections are due, such as Gujarat. The discussions between Mr Pilot and the Gandhis at their Delhi home comes days after the Congress settled its affairs in neighbouring Punjab, where assembly elections will be held early next year.
Whether Mr Pilot, 44, has agreed to manage the Congress’s Gujarat campaign is not known; however, he is known to have his own ambitions in Rajasthan, where Ashok Gehlot, 70, is the Chief Minister.
Mr Pilot has been waiting to see his loyalists inducted in to the Rajasthan cabinet, and this matter was likely discussed during his meeting with the Gandhis.
