Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Monday said that the chief ministers of all Congress-ruled states have urged Rahul Gandhi to take back his decision to quit as Congress president and remain the chief of the party. Gehlot made the statement while talking to media after he and other chief ministers of the Congress-ruled states, including Madhya Pradesh CM Kamal Nath and Punjab CM Amarinder Singh, met Gandhi at his residence in New Delhi.
“Rahul Gandhi heard us patiently and we expect him to agree to our request to continue as Congress chief . It was a good meeting. We talked for around two hours and conveyed to him the feelings of party workers and leaders. We hope that he will pay heed to our views and do the right thing,” Gehlot said after the meeting.
