(Photo: Twitter)In one line, senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Thursday sent a clear message to Ashok Gehlot: that he cannot hope to remain Rajasthan Chief Minister if he is elected as Congress president. But the big question that remains unanswered is the timing of his stepping down — will he resign after filing his nomination later this month or wait for counting day on October 19?

Sources in the Congress said the leadership is in favour of Sachin Pilot succeeding Gehlot, but the Chief Minister is keen that the views of the MLAs — most of them are with him — be taken. Rahul is expected to arrive in Delhi on Thursday night to meet his mother and Congress president Sonia Gandhi who returned from abroad last week after undergoing a medical check-up.

“What we decided at Udaipur (chintan shivir)… that is a commitment of the Congress party. So I expect that commitment will be maintained,” Rahul said, responding to a question on the one-person, one-post rule that the party had decided to implement at its conclave in May. His clear signal, at a press conference in Kochi, came hours before the Chief Minister landed in Kerala to meet him.

Pilot had met Rahul in Kochi on Wednesday and sources said the Rajasthan quagmire figured prominently in their discussions. The Pilot camp wants Gehlot to step down before or after he files his nomination papers and a successor to be appointed. Pilot’s supporters are wary that if Gehlot continues as Chief Minister and is elected Congress president, he will have a “huge say” in picking his successor, and it may not be Pilot.

In an interview to The Indian Express, Gehlot said he understands that a person who holds the post of Congress president would not be able to do justice to the job if he holds any other post like that of Chief Minister. “It has never happened before… in history, there has never been a case when a person is both the Congress president and the Chief Minister of a state. That person will not be able to justify the Congress presidency. So, from that point of view, it is natural that woh Congress president rehke kaam kare (he should work as the Congress president), even though the two-posts issue may not apply in this case,” he said.
