Rajasthan polls: Gehlot says party is priority, not CM post

Updated:1 month, 1 week ago IST

New Delhi, Dec 07 (ANI): Anticipating the victory of Congress in the Rajasthan assembly elections after receiving favourable decisions in the exit polls, senior Congress leader Ashok Gehlot on Friday said that he would love to work at whatever position the “high command” in the party will decide for him, adding that he is not keeping the Chief Minister post as his priority. Gehlot, who has been the Chief Minister of Rajasthan two times earlier, is reportedly the frontrunner for the Congress party’s chief ministerial candidate alongside Sachin Pilot. Responding to the same, Gehlot told ANI: “My wishes do not make a difference here. In my life, there is no priority with respect to any post now. Now people need Congress. How will we make Congress a strong party? We currently have 21 seats in Rajasthan assembly and 44 seats in Lok Sabha. Our responsibility right now should be that rather than running behind or demanding a particular post, we should work on whatever position the party will decide for us so that the party can gain from it. Given the position at which Congress currently stands, it will be good to see how we can raise the party flag in the country.”
