Party’s state in-charge Ajay Maken, who was present in the meeting, also gave a clean chit to Ashok Gehlot and said that I want to tell the CM that you should continue to do development work in Rajasthan like this. Maken will meet the party office-bearers and the candidates who lost the elections today. After that he will go to Delhi with his opinion on the Gehlot government and organization.
In the legislative party meeting held in CMR on Thursday night, Ashok Gehlot said that now is the time to forget the past. We have to move forward together. This statement of Gehlot is being considered as a step towards reconciliation with Pilot. However, there were no pilots in the meeting. They are in Delhi.
