Rajasthan Political Crisis: In Rajasthan, the round of discussion regarding cabinet expansion is intensifying. According to sources, the Congress leadership has started planning ahead keeping in mind all the things in this regard. This is the reason that along with inducting new ministers in the Gehlot government, the party can also appoint ‘parliamentary secretaries’ in Rajasthan.
Political turmoil in Rajasthan is once again intensifying. The way former Deputy CM Sachin Pilot raised questions on the functioning of his own government while opening the front, it intensified the discussion that everything is not going well in the Rajasthan Congress. Meanwhile, discussions have also intensified regarding the cabinet expansion in the state. According to sources, 9 ministers can get a place in the Gehlot cabinet, for which about 35 names are being discussed in the discussion. Of these, a large number of MLAs are from the pilot camp. In such a situation, the question is arising that what strategy will the party adopt for cabinet expansion to avoid any deadlock?
Considering the appointment of parliamentary secretaries with the expansion of the cabinet
According to sources, the Congress leadership has started planning ahead keeping in mind all the things in this regard. This is the reason that along with inducting new ministers in the Gehlot government, the party can also appoint ‘parliamentary secretaries’ in Rajasthan. In this, MLAs showing rebellious attitude as well as leaders hoping for ministerial post can get a place. However, there is a demand from the pilot camp for 6 to 7 seats in the cabinet expansion.

Not only this, 10 independents are also supporting the Ashok Gehlot government, their eyes are also on the cabinet expansion. At the same time, 6 MLAs who came to Congress from BSP are also hoping to become ministers. Apart from these, there are also about 10 senior Congress leaders, who are hopeful that they can also get a reward in this expansion. From the Gehlot camp, there is a special eye on those independent candidates who, despite not getting the Congress ticket, won on their own and yet were seen with the Gehlot government even in times of crisis.
Round of meetings continues in Rajasthan
At the same time, amid reports of displeasure of former Deputy CM Sachin Pilot, his supporters MLAs expressed displeasure over the delay in resolving the issues raised by him. During this, half a dozen MLAs close to Pilot met him at his residence in Civil Lines on Thursday. According to sources, MLAs Ved Prakash Solanki, Mukesh Bhakar and Ram Niwas Gawaria met Pilot after former minister Vishvendra Singh met Pilot earlier in the day. MLA Rakesh Pareek also reached Pilot’s residence.
What do the legislators of the pilot camp have to say
Solanki, MLA from Chaksu (Jaipur), said that all of us are raising our voice for the strength of the party. Those who question our allegiance to the party are not well wishers of the party. He said the Congress high command should listen to Pilot. After meeting with Pilot, Solanki said that there has been no discussion or hearing on the demands raised by us. If the Chief Minister does not want to consider the people of the Pilot camp, then he should give political appointments to the people of his side.
