Gehlot bats for loyalists in bid to deny Pilot chance to be CM

Jaipur, 23/9: Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot wants to drag the issue of finalising his successor to the MLAs even as Rahul Gandhi is learnt to have conveyed to him that Sachin Pilot is the best bet and he has the leadership’s backing.



Sources said Rahul and Gehlot had an extensive discussion in Kochi on the Congress president election and new Chief Minister on the sidelines of Bharat Jodo Yatra on Thursday during which the former Congress president threw his weight behind Pilot.
