New Delhi, July 12 : With its government in Rajasthan on the brink, Congress managers are looking for ways to call a truce between the warring camps led by Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and his deputy Sachin Pilot.
Senior Congress leader Abhishek Singhvi said “There is a time and a place for everything. Gehlot and Pilot are seasoned leaders and have to demonstrate the perspicacity and maturity they are famous for. Turbulence should be shortlived and solutions lasting and deep.”
Singhvi’s remarks came amid the political crisis in the state after Deputy Chief Minister Pilot went incommunicado along with over a dozen MLAs.
Pilot, who arrived in the national capital on Saturday has also sought meeting with party interim chief Sonia Gandhi over the issue.
According to party sources, Pilot did speak with Congress treasurer Ahmed Patel late at night but the problem between Gehlot and his deputy is deep rooted ever since Gehlot took over as Chief Minister.
The Congress is trying to pacify both the camps in the state to save it from embarrassment, sources said.
