There are almost three dozen Congress leaders in Rajasthan who hold posts both in the government and party.
With Gehlot and Pilot camping in Delhi on Saturday it seems that the tussle between the two leaders has made the central leadership more anxious.
Former Delhi Congress president Ajay Maken said even after his resignation, Gandhi would remain the voice of the party's workers.
Political observers say that Pilot is taking a leaf out of Gehlot’s tactics and is making a special effort to reach out to party leaders in Delhi in order to raise his own political stature.
BJP has criticized Congress and said the farmer suicides clearly proves that the loan waiver was not implemented on the ground which is why the government doesn't release any details of it.
The incident has sparked a protest with farmers taking to the streets in Sri Ganganagar on Tuesday.
Former Jaipur mayor Jyoti Khandelwal blamed the party's state vice-president Archana Sharma for her defeat.
The tour comes in the wake of the Congress’s demolition in the Lok Sabha polls, losing all 25 seats to the BJP, despite holding power in the state.
In an effort to connect with the locals, the Congress leader has been making field visits where he is meeting people to know about their problems.
Such is the extent of instability that has gripped the state party unit that even ministers and sitting legislators are in a dilemma on who calls the shots.
Reviewing schemes of the Rural Development and Panchayati Raj Department at a meeting here, Pilot directed officials to prepare proposals for new works.
Pilot meanwhile said that the reasons for the loss in the Lok Sabha elections were being investigated and a report from the ground level is expected soon.

Mayawati's statement comes as a relief to the Congress party, which has been facing several challenges after facing a humiliating defeat in the Lok Sabha elections.
Pilot said the Congress accepted defeat in the general elections but it was not the first or the last election.
