Addressing a press conference in Alwar, along with Congress president Rahul Gandhi who met the victim on Thursday, Gehlot termed the district as “quite critical” and that the demand to divide it was long pending.
During a public meeting at the historic Tower House, Kashwini, the daughter of Vaibhav Gehlot, said "please ensure my father's victory by a margin of lakhs of votes" to a loud cheer from the crowd. Vaibhav Gehlot also participated in a roadshow.
Earlier today, at a press conference in Jaipur, Gehlot told reporters people had expectations that BJP veteran leader LK Advani would get the honour of becoming the president but was deprived of the same.
After deliberations, Congress President Rahul Gandhi has picked Ashok Gehlot for the post of Rajasthan Chief Minister. Sachin Pilot, who fought for the position, will be made deputy Chief Minister of the state.
It was a close contest in both Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh between the Congress and BJP. But the grand old party did get a few things right which helped it get ahead of the bump in both the states. Manoj CG breaks it down.
