ET had reported that Gehlot and Pilot were batting for their confidantes to be included in the cabinet. Several MLAs are camping in Delhi, lobbying for their candidatures.
In 2018 elections, members of royal families were seen losing favour from public as many of them had to taste defeat.
With Pilot putting up a spirited fight for chief ministership, he has clearly emerged as a power centre in the political arena, along with Gehlot.
Gehlot alleged that the previous BJP government cheated farmers when it had announced loan waiver of up to Rs 50,000.
The youth allowance is going to drain the already-strained coffers of a state which has the capacity to provide employment only to 1.5% of the unemployed youths at present.
The Congress government has announced to completely waive farm loans which would cost over Rs 1 lakh crore to the exchequer.
Gehlot, a Gandhi loyalist, who was handpicked by Indira Gandhi in early 70s has spent over 40 years in politics, shuttling between state and central politics.
Political analysts believe that the decision would be crucial for the upcoming parliamentary elections. The party would have to work unitedly in Rajasthan for the 25 Lok Sabha seats.
“Rahul Gandhiji has promised to roll out loan waiver for farmers within 10 days of government formation. We are committed to it,” Pilot said.
The incumbent BJP won 73 seats while six seats went to BSP and 21 to others, including rebels from Congress and BJP and parties such as CPM, RLP and BTP.
