The long-pending cabinet reshuffle and political appointments are likely to be discussed and these are set to get the green signal when Gehlot meets Congress president Sonia Gandhi.
The former BSP legislators had backed the state government when former Rajasthan Deputy CM Sachin Pilot had rebelled against Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot last year.
Though Congress leaders are claiming that ‘all is well’ in the state unit, the cabinet reshuffle has become a really tough exercise for the party.
Instead of dropping sitting ministers, CM wants to add fresh faces from Pilot’s camp
According to highly placed sources, Gehlot is still not in a mood to accommodate the demands of the Sachin Pilot camp
Selja is supposed to enjoy the confidence of Congress president Sonia Gandhi and is also considered close to Gehlot.
Maken was in Jaipur for the past three days and held one-on-one meetings with 115 party MLAs and other legislators supporting the Gehlot government.
Maken's remark follows his one-on-one meetings here with party MLAs and other leaders in the Congress-ruled state.
Sachin Pilot loyalists say some existing ministers must be dropped based on their performance and the feedback from MLAs.
His two-day trip to Jaipur comes at a time when speculations about Rajasthan Cabinet expansion are growing stronger.
Sachin Pilot and several other MLAs had mounted an open rebellion against Gehlot last June.
AICC general secretary Maken said all the leaders have left the decision of the cabinet reshuffle to the party high command.
After meeting ministers, MLAs and office bearers at the party office here, Maken said all of them have unanimously left the decision of the cabinet reshuffle on the party high command.
At present, there are 21 members in the council of ministers, including chief minister, and nine slots are vacant.
