Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot flashes the victory sign along with Congress leaders Randeep Singh Surjewala, Ajay Maken and other MLAs at his residence on Monday.

A day after deputy chief minister Sachin Pilot claimed that the Ashok Gehlot government in Rajasthan has turned into a minority government after some MLAs went with him, chief minister Gehlot on Monday showed a united force at the Legislature Party meeting throwing the show open to media claiming around 100 MLAs were still by his side.

As Gehlot managed to put up a brave face and paraded all MLAs in front of the media, the Pilot camp remained out of sight.

Congress leader Randeep Surjewala clearly said there was “No scope for personal ambition in the Congress party”.

However, he added that the oldest party has its doors open for Pilot and his MLAs.

The Congress MLAs gathered at the chief minister’s residence here “exuded confidence” that their government is in safe hands.

There was sloganeering and Victory signs flashed at the media.

Gehlot along with other ministers even shouted in unison, “We stand together”.
