  • The month-long political drama in Rajasthan, with the fate of the Ashok Gehlot-led Congress government hanging tantalisingly in the balance, came to an end on August 10, after peace talks in Delhi featuring the disaffected former deputy CM Sachin Pilot, former Congress president Rahul Gandhi and his sister and party general secretary Priyanka Gandhi.
  • Gehlot was even more on guard after Jyotiraditya Scindia, once considered close to Rahul Gandhi, switched to the BJP with 22 MLAs in March and toppled the Kamal Nath-led Congress government in neighbouring Madhya Pradesh.
  • Several Congress leaders, including Rahul, Priyanka, Patel, P. Chidambaram, Captain Amarinder Singh, and Venugopal regularly interacted with Pilot over the phone.
