New Delhi.After changing the rule of power and organization in Punjab, the Congress high command has intensified the initiative to find a solution to the internal tussle in Rajasthan.Under this, former Congress President Rahul Gandhi had a long discussion with former Rajasthan Deputy CM Sachin Pilot on Friday.It is understood that during this time there was a discussion on the power of the state and the adjustment of Pilot supporters in the organization to their future political role.To put an end to the internal tug-of-war of Rajasthan Congress, this meeting was also important because Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, who played a key role in bringing back Sachin Pilot from the rebellion, was also present in the meeting.
After this meeting of Sachin with Rahul and Priyanka, the discussion has intensified in the political corridors of the Congress that the party high command has now increased its pressure on Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot to include Pilot supporters in the government. .Gehlot has been postponing the matter of taking Pilot faction MLAs and sacked ministers in his cabinet for the last one year.
During the last few months, the Congress high command had given a clear message to Gehlot that it would fulfill its promise to bring Pilot back from the rebellion.Meanwhile, Gehlot suffered a heart attack and angioplasty, the case was pending for the last one-and-a-half-two months.But after completing the political operation to remove old stalwarts like Captain Amarinder Singh in Punjab, Rahul and Priyanka seem ready to take necessary steps to balance between Gehlot and Pilot in Rajasthan.

Pilot's eye on future politics
Rahul Gandhi had a long conversation with Sachin Pilot last week as well and is understood to have been offered the charge of Gujarat by making him the national general secretary of the Congress.But Pilot is currently emphasizing on his proper and respectable role in the politics of Rajasthan while looking at future politics.Of course, Pilot is no longer interested in becoming the Deputy CM in the Gehlot government, but he is eyeing to regain the post of state Congress president.
Pilot's return to state power and organization is almost certain
It is clear from these indications of Pilot that he sees more benefit in the future in keeping the command of the Congress organization in Rajasthan.Of course, Chief Minister Gehlot has good relations with the Gandhi family, but Sachin Pilot has also been counted among the leaders close to Rahul and Priyanka.In such a situation, after the latest meeting with Rahul-Priyanka, the return of Pilot and his supporters to the power and organization of the state is almost certain.
