Shortly after Rajasthan chief minister Ashok Gehlot announced on Thursday that his government will seek a trust vote in the House assembly which begins Friday, his former deputy Sachin Pilot took to Twitter to announce that the Congress party determined to act in the interest of the people of the state.

“Took part in the meeting of the Legislative Party today with fellow MLAs including Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot ji, organization general secretary KC Venugopal ji, Incharge Avinash Pandey ji and state president Govind Singh Dotasara ji. We are determined to act in the interest of the people of Rajasthan and in accordance with the promises made,” Pilot tweeted in Hindi.

The return of Pilot and 18 of his supporters has come as a huge boost for the Congress that had been convulsed by infighting for more than a month.

Gehlot and Pilot came face-to-face at the Congress Legislature Party meet on Thursday, underscoring that grievances of the dissident MLAs will be addressed and that the episode should now be buried for good.

Pilot, who returned to Jaipur on Tuesday, had earlier expressed his gratitude to all for supporting him during his tenure as the state unit head for six years, said people present at the CLP meeting.

Boosted by the return of the 19 rebel MLAs, Gehlot also short-circuited the BJP’s no-confidence motion move by announcing that his government will seek a trust vote in the assembly. Under the rules, if the CM moves a confidence motion, it overrides the no-confidence motion moved by any other member.
