Khiladi Lal Bairwa, a Congress MLA from Rajasthans Baseri Assembky constituency, called Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot a travesty and said he would never become Prime Minister, adding that Gehlot's remark against his former deputy,turned-foe Sachin Pilot, had stung the opposition of fellow Congressmen, Bairwa said.Our high-command has given us the positions we hold.Such remarks are not appropriate for a chief minister, says Bairwa, who was initially thought to be the frontrunner in the race for the Congress president, withdrawing from the competition after refusing to relinquish the chief ministership of Rajasthan, citing a shift from the high-commands model of one individual, one post, and defiance of the top leadership's attempts to instal Pilot as the next CM.Everyone must work together.

State minister Rajendra Singh Gudha said that 80 percent of MLAs were with Sachin Pilot, and that there was no better politician than him.Pilott said in response to his latest remark that Ashok Gehlot is a senior and experienced leader and that I don't know who is advising him to make such inflammatory, baseless allegations against him.In a salute to the Rajasthan CM, Pilot said that Congress had suffered major losses in Rajasthan as a result of Gehlot's state leadership.BJP was well-beaten in Rajasthan when I was state president of the Congress.

Pilot said that the next step should be to put up a united front and do everything possible to help the Congress win the next Assembly elections in Rajasthan, according to the congress's general secretary in charge of communications, Jairam Ramesh, who said that all the gaps should be settled in a way that strengthens the Congress.Any problems he had with his young Rer colleague Sachin Pilot must be resolved in a way that strengthens the Congress, Ramesh said.
