Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot
Once again, political movements are seen intensifying in Rajasthan. State CM Ashok Gehlot is going to Delhi on Saturday to attend the Congress Working Committee (CWC) meeting. This visit of CM to Delhi has once again given air to the issue of reshuffle in the state cabinet. Let us inform that a meeting of CWC has been called on October 16 to discuss the present political scenario and the assembly and organizational elections in many states to be held. In which CM Ashok Gehlot is going to Delhi only to join.
Actually, assembly by-elections are to be held in Rajasthan on 30 October. Cabinet reshuffles and appointments were postponed only after the announcement of the dates for this by-election. Before the announcement of the dates, everyone was speculating that soon a big reshuffle could be seen in the cabinet. Leaders familiar with the development of AICC general secretary Ajay Maken and Sachin Pilot’s meetings with the party leadership were also highly hopeful that a cabinet reshuffle could happen soon.
This is the second Delhi visit of CM after February
Even after Rajasthan Health Minister Raghu Sharma was appointed in-charge of Gujarat on October 7, it was expected that there would be a cabinet reshuffle, but nothing like this happened. Meanwhile, now with the possibility of Ashok Gehlot attending the CWC meeting, the discussion of reshuffle has started gaining momentum once again. This will be Ashok Gehlot’s second visit to Delhi since February.
Changes may happen around Diwali
At the same time, a senior leader says that Gehlot is not a part of the CWC, but the chief ministers of Congress-ruled states have attended the meeting. He said, it is believed that Gehlot will meet AICC chief Sonia Gandhi and take her approval after discussing the reshuffle and appointments. However, some state leaders also believe that cabinet reshuffles and changes in appointments could happen around Diwali.
