New Delhi, January 6
Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Wednesday reconstituted the Rajasthan party unit appointing seven vice presidents, eight general secretaries and 24 secretaries.
The reconstitution comes months after the party’s government in Rajasthan survived a coup led by former deputy chief minister Sachin Pilot.
Pilot, who was also heading the state unit at the time, was dropped both as PCC chief and deputy CM, as the state government managed to avert the crisis.
Govind Singh Dotasra, a confidante of chief minister Ashok Gehlot, had replaced Pilot but the state organisation had not been reconstituted.
The new committee represents interests of both Gehlot and Pilot.
One condition on which Pilot had returned to the Congress after striking a note of rebellion was that the party will constitute an organisation which strikes a balancing act between warring factions of the unit.
