Joshi in place of Gehlot

September 10 2012

Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot’s post is in danger. Complains against him from all quarters are reaching the Congress high command. It will not be a surprise if P C Joshi is made Rajasthan’s next chief minister in his place. The stage is also set to change Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan. The prime minister himself is said to be keen to have him in the Cabinet, and the Congress high command also knows that the next elections can’t be contested under Chavan’s leadership because he doesn’t have mass appeal. The names of Narayan Rane, Radhakant Vikhhe Patil, Manik Rao Thackeray, Harshvardhan Patil and others are being considered. Narayan Rane stands the most chance. The Congress is also looking for such a leader who can catapult them into the ruler’s seat again. The sword also hands over Haryana’s Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda. But because his Parliamentarian son is friends with Rahul Gandhi, Hooda senior may be spared for now.
