Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said on Friday that it is reasonable to have ambition in politics, but it was the approach that made the difference.
His comment comes two days after his former deputy Sachin Pilot raised eyebrows at Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “praise” for Gehlot and also urged Congress to end the “state of indecision” over the Prime Minister’s post. .
When asked about the internal challenges in the party, Gehlot told reporters in Baran without naming anyone: “Everyone has a little bit of ambition in politics and it’s fair that someone has ambition. It is the approach that makes the difference.” Refuting all suggestions of internal conflict in the ruling party, Gehlot said he did not want to discuss the matter further and said it was important to win the next Rajasthan Assembly elections in the interest of the state and the country.
He said the next elections would be fought on the government’s agenda of good governance, works and plans.
On Wednesday, Pilot urged action against leaders of the Ashok Gehlot camp who were involved in a display of power on behalf of the prime minister by boycotting a Congress Legislative Party meeting in September, saying the time had come for Congress to to end the state of political indecision.
