Sachin Pilot, Ashok Gehlot will contest Rajasthan Polls
Former chief minister Ashok Gehlot and state Congress president Sachin Pilot will contest the December 7 assembly elections in Rajasthan. This was announced by Gehlot on Wednesday at a news conference at the Congress headquarters in Delhi. The surprise move has added to the suspense about the Congress party’s presumptive chief minister given that both Gehlot and Pilot are strong contenders for the top post in Rajasthan. The Congress is banking on the anti-incumbency against chief minister Vasundhara Raje to wrest power from the BJP this time.
