On the other hand, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has requested his Congress colleague and former Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh to keep working keeping the interest of the party at the top. Ashok Gehlot wrote many things by tweeting continuously on social media. Gehlot does not want the party’s image to be tarnished and the Captain should take any such decision in this critical hour which is harmful for the party. He wrote – I hope that Captain Amarinder Singh ji will not take any such step which will harm the Congress party. Captain Sahib himself said that the party had kept him as the Chief Minister for nine and a half years. He has served the people of Punjab by working to the best of his ability. In another tweet, Gehlot wrote – Many times the high command has to take decisions in the interest of the party on the basis of the feedback received from the MLAs and the general public. I also personally believe that The Congress President chooses the Chief Minister only after taking out the displeasure of many leaders, who are in the race to become the Chief Minister.
