Ashok Gehlot appointed as Rajasthan CM, Sachin Pilot as deputy

After several hours of meetings and tussle, Congress chief Rahul Gandhi on Friday appointed Ashok Gehlot as Chief Minister of Rajasthan and Sachin Pilot as deputy chief minister. The announcement was made by the state’s party observer K C Venugopal.

Last year, when the 67-year-old Gehlot was brought to Delhi and inducted as the party’s general secretary, it was understood that these steps were taken to clear the way for Pilot, who had then been given charge of the Rajasthan Congress.
