Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot is likely going to meet the state’s Governor Kalraj Mishra.
Unlike Punjab, in Rajasthan the things seem to go on a slower pace and the stalemate in the party's state unit will continue for some time.
The game changed in the last minutes as the names for the CM and Deputy CMs changed in the last 24 hours and Charanjit Singh Channi emerged as Punjab's first Dalit Chief Minister.
The Congress has accused Twitter of acting under pressure from the government.
Despite one-on-one consultations with Congress MLAs in Rajasthan, the long-running stalemate in the party’s state unit will continue for some more time.
After meeting Congress MLAs in Jaipur on Sunday, AICC general secretary Ajay Maken ruled out the possibility of contradiction among the party’s leaders in Rajasthan on the issue of cabinet reshuffle.
AICC general secretary Ajay Maken and general secretary (organisation) K.C Venugopal met ministers, MLAs and office bearers at the party office in Jaipur.
The Congress leader said Gehlot is an honest politician and an experienced warhorse, while he also described Sachin Pilot as an asset for the party.
Maken was recently sent as observer by the party to Rajasthan, along with party chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala, to help resolve the differences and save the government from the possibility of losing its majority in the state assembly.
The Congress asked Union minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat to provide his voice sample to end the row over audio clips purportedly containing conversations on toppling the Ashok Gehlot-led Rajasthan government.
Congress' senior spokesperson Ajay Maken said the government should reduce the rates of petrol, diesel, and LPG by at least 35-40 per cent.
Deora, the former Mumbai Congress chief, shared a 'lesser-known & welcome fact' about the AAP-led Delhi government, triggering a critical response from Maken.
The Delhi Congress president thanked Congress workers and Rahul Gandhi for their support while handing over his resignation.
Convener of AAP's Delhi unit Gopal Rai said that a complaint will be filed with police, which the party claimed to have been a "mute spectator" during the Sunday's incident.
Maken tweeted, 'Sh. Rajiv Gandhi sacrificed his life for the country. True colours of AAP have come out in the open! I have always believed that AAP is the B team of BJP!'
Maken will resume work after returning on September 22 to Delhi.
Sources say Ajay Maken has said in his letter to Congress chief Rahul Gandhi that he is unwell. His resignation has reportedly not been accepted yet.
