As the Congress battles to maintain its home so as in Rajasthan, the BJP, having tackled an identical state of affairs in MP earlier, is retaining a detailed watch.
Though it might like nothing higher than to displace the Congress authorities in Jaipur, sources say the saffron get together is intently watching as Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and Deputy CM Sachin Pilot play out their strikes.
While their claims of “having no hand” within the imbroglio seem far-fetched amid studies of Pilot “being in touch” with Union ministers, senior leaders say whether or not Gehlot manages to avoid wasting his authorities or not, it is going to be a win-win state of affairs for the BJP.
“One thing is for sure, only if Pilot has sufficient numbers to ensure the fall of the Gehlot government or have his say (in Congress), he will be in any position to bargain in future,” say political observers.
