Poll Bar­gain

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

Hav­ing lost Ra­jasthan badly to BJP’s Va­sund­hara Raje in the As­sem­bly elec­tions, for­mer chief min­is­ter Ashok Gehlot now ex­pects the Congress to let his son con­test par­lia­men­tary elec­tions.“There is no ques­tion of any reser­va­tions on my part if the party fields Vaib­hav in the Gen­eral Elec­tions,” he said on March 1 in Delhi. A ticket to Vaib­hav, 33, was part of Gehlot’s bar­gain with the high com­mand to let Sachin Pi­lot take over as PCC chief. Gehlot says his son’s name has come up in Congress sur­veys for prob­a­bles in Tonk-Sawai Mad­hopur and Jalore con­stituen­cies.
