Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, in a somewhat playful tone, made a veiled comment about his wish to leave the Chief Minister’s post but finding himself unable to do so. During a media address in Delhi, Gehlot shared an anecdote where a woman supporter expressed her desire for him to become the Chief Minister for the fourth time. In response, he humorously remarked, “I told her that I want to give up the Chief Minister’s post, but this post is not letting me go.” While the comments were delivered in a light-hearted manner, they carry significance within the context of the ongoing power struggle within the Rajasthan Congress.

Acknowledging Sachin Pilot and Acceptance of High Command’s Decision

Gehlot also made reference to his political rival, Sachin Pilot, suggesting that the party high command had valid reasons for choosing him as the state’s leader on three separate occasions. However, he emphasized that any decision made by the party’s high command would be acceptable to all.

Unity and Decision-Making Process in Congress

Both factions within the Rajasthan Congress have attempted to project a united front in the lead-up to the November 25 election. Despite efforts to maintain unity, occasional barbs continue to be exchanged. Gehlot dismissed concerns about delays in the Congress releasing its candidate list and stated that the only party fretting about it was the opposition BJP. He explained that decisions are being made thoughtfully and considerately, with ongoing discussions and outreach to supporters of Sachin Pilot.

Regarding the possibility of denying tickets to incumbent legislators, Gehlot stated that the party would consider alternative candidates if they were deemed more suitable. He reaffirmed that there is no internal rift within the party and that he follows a “forgive and forget” mantra.

Rajasthan’s Political Landscape and Upcoming Election

The Rajasthan election is anticipated to be a direct contest between the BJP and Congress. Both parties are grappling with internal discord, and efforts are being made to prevent this infighting from affecting the party’s electoral prospects. To maintain unity, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has decided not to project any single leader as the face of the BJP campaign. Prominent leaders within the state BJP include former Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje and Union Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat.

Gehlot also alluded to past differences within the BJP and credited Vasundhara Raje with helping save his government during the mutiny led by Sachin Pilot. These remarks had previously triggered a response from Raje, who had claimed that Gehlot’s comments were driven by his unease over the rebellion within his party.

Political Dynamics in Rajasthan

The political dynamics in Rajasthan are complex and filled with rivalries, which add intrigue to the upcoming election. The ability of both the Congress and the BJP to manage and navigate these internal challenges will play a significant role in determining the election’s outcome.
