According to party sources, the two leaders discussed the Rajasthan’s cabinet expansion.


The party source said that Pilot pitched to have Dalit and OBC face in the cabinet expansion.

Speaking to reporters after meeting Gandhi, Pilot said, “Whatever the Congress party wants me to do, I am more than happy to do. In the last two decades, whatever job has been assigned, I have done it diligently and will continue to do so.”

I am happy that Sonia Gandhi ji took feedback from all of us. I think at the right time, AICC general secretary Maken ji will take an appropriate decision regarding Rajasthan

Pilot said the party wants to strengthen the state organisation ahead of the 2023 Rajasthan assembly polls.

The meeting of the two leaders comes a day after Gehlot met Sonia Gandhi.
