Rajasthan Congress president Govind Singh Dotasra on Monday ruled out any possibility of a leadership change in the state, saying it is merely a rumour.

"There is no such thing or discussion on change in leadership. It is a fake and hollow rumour. Ashok Gehlot is the chief minister, and he will remain so for five years,” Dotasra told reporters.

Dotasra along with other Congress leaders were in Jaipur to meet the Rajasthan Speaker C P Joshi ahead of the assembly session convened from August 14.

Replying to a question on Sunday’s CLP meeting where the Congress leaders ruled out the return of rebel legislators to the party, Dotasra said everyone is free to speak in a meeting but decisions ultimately are taken by the party high command.

"There is a freedom for every member to put forth his views but decisions ultimately are taken by the party high command. Everything is in the knowledge of the party high command and whatever decision is taken, it will be right," he said.

When asked whether the party’s doors for Sachin Pilot camp have been closed, he said, "Doors were open. They have run away. We have not asked them to go.”

He said it’s now between the rebel MLAs and party high command as we did not discuss their return, said Dotasra.

The party’s state unit chief said party leaders met Speaker Joshi on Monday so that the House runs smoothly when the session begins on August 14 and issues related to people are discussed peacefully in the House.

He also said the Congress will become a party in the court on the issue of merger of six BSP candidates as they are now the Congress legislators.
