NEW DELHI: Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Friday appeared to have successfully brokered peace between Ashok Gehlot and Sachin Pilot + after several rounds of discussions and tweeted a picture of the two warring leaders from Rajasthan with himself.

Gandhi met the two leaders separately thrice since Thursday + and is learnt to have decided the chief ministerial face in the state. But there was no immediate clarity on who would be the chief minister and it is likely to be announced by this evening.

There have been hectic discussions between top party leaders, including Sonia Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, on the selection of chief ministers for Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh.

Senior party leaders K C Venugopal, Avinash Pande and Jitendra Singh were also present during the meeting Friday.

Crucial decisions always take time: Gehlot

"Crucial decisions always take time," Congress leader Ashok Gehlot said on Friday, commenting on why the name of Rajasthan chief minister had not been announced yet.

Gehlot was speaking to the media before the start of the meeting at the residence of Congress president Rahul Gandhi in the presence of state Congress chief Sachin Pilot, the other main contender for the post.

Gehlot said the BJP had no right to comment on the issue as that party took seven days to select their state head in Uttar Pradesh. Similarly, in Maharashtra, they took nine days to choose a chief minister.

In Rajasthan, he added, the BJP could not appoint a party president for more than 70 days. The name suggested by the BJP central leadership was rejected by then chief minister Vasundhara Raje.

"It is normal for such an issue to take time. We are also trying to send out a message that crucial decisions in our party are discussed jointly," he said.

The Congress ousted the BJP from power in Rajasthan despite falling short of a clear majority in the assembly by one vote. But it got the backing of the BSP and Independents.
