The ongoing political tussle between Chief Minister, Ashok Gehlot, and his former Deputy CM, Sachin Pilot will die dopwn soon if the newly appointed Congress party in-charge in Rajasthan, Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa is to be believed.
After a series of meetings with party leaders and workers on Friday, Randhawa said, “it is my job to resolve the dispute, not theirs. I am not sitting in a five star hotel but talking with all Congress people and sitting with them in the party office. We will finish it soon.”
“My first talk is to strengthen the PCC organisation, and we are all working in that direction. The vacant posts of the organisation at block and district level would be filled soon. You will see such a list in a day or two. No major complaints have been received during the feedback, small things keep going in the party”, he categorically said.
On a volley of questions concerning the cold war between CM and Pilot, Randhawa reacted, “Ask me for today and future. Do not ask me what happened in the past at the party”.
“Our job is to strengthen the organisation at block and district levels. I am not going to distribute an election ticket now. Though, it would be a matter of survey first before the next year’s assembly polls in Rajasthan, and those who will figure in the survey can talk of such a ticket to contest the election”, he replied to another question.
Blocks and districts units of PCC are running without office bearers since July 2020. Barring 9 state office bearers and 13 district heads, there are no office bearers in the organisation for over two and half years.
Earlier in the day, Randhawa visited the Speaker Dr CP Joshi’s residence and held parleys in relation to the 92 MLAs’ en masse resignation given to the latter on September 25. If sources are believed, all MLAs would withdraw their resignations before the next month’s assembly session slated for January 23.
