NEW DELHI: Rajasthan Congress leader Sachin pilot met Rahul Gandhi on Friday for the second time in 10 days, raising speculations that the party is finalising the changes to be made in the state.

Pilot was apparently called for discussions in which Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra both were present. A Cabinet reshuffle in the Gehlot government is pending for a while now. The state government is to be rejigged by including MLAs loyal to Pilot, while the party is also to appoint district presidents and chairmen of state corporations.

The frequent meetings suggest that the leadership has put the Pilot-led revolt last year behind it, and is looking at the future. This has triggered the question if Pilot can be given back some of his earlier responsibilities like the state chief.

Congress is also looking for an in-charge of Gujarat Congress where the post of AICC manager is vacant after the death of Rajiv Satav. The state goes to polls next year.

After the change of CM in Punjab, speculation is rife that action on leadership as well as reshuffle will be taken in other states. Chhattisgarh is one state where the party is still to take a final call on the issue of leadership of Bhupesh Baghel.
