Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Tuesday was at the receiving end of some tough talk by AICC general secretary and CWC member C P Joshi,during a high-level meeting,for his personal reservations against a few party leaders. Joshi is said to have told Gehlot that like Lord Shiva,he too would have to consume poison,hinting that he would have to shed his personal reservations against a few individual leaders and work with everyone to build a united face of the party.
The message from the party high command that was brought in by visiting senior party leaders Joshi and newly appointed party in-charge of Rajasthan Gurudas Kamat was to create unity in the state unit. Kamat said that all party leaders should be invited to accompany the Chief Minister in the ongoing Sandesh Yatra so that an united image of the party emerges.
Joshi went as far to say that he was attending the meeting on the insistence of Kamat and that he knew Gehlot had reservations against him. Backing it up,Kamat too clarified that he had personally called some leaders to ensure they attended the meeting.
