No post matters to me any more; ready to become sadhu for Cong: Gehlot

Jodhpur, Nov 7: Amid persistent speculations in the media and political circles about rivalry within the Congress for the post of chief minister in the event of the party's triumph in the December 7 polls, AICC General Secretary Ashok Gehlot indicated that he was not after any specific post and ready to do any thing for the benefit of the Congress.

''Posts no more matter to me now, I, do only bother to serve the party's cause to best possible extent and for this cause I am ready even to become a saint (sadhu),'' Mr Gehlot, a two timer CM said here Tuesday evening.

Talking to party workers who thronged his place here following his arrival from New Delhi, Mr Gehlot said it is election time, the only goal of all party workers at all levels should be to ensure party's resounding victory at the hustings and form the government in the state.

"No matter who gets what, who gets ticket and who does not, this should not at all important, only one gets ticket in a constituency and all are supposed to support him/her and work to ensure win for the party", Gehlot exhorted.

There have been speculations in the media for long about tussle between Gehlot and party state president Sachin Pilot for the post of CM in the event of the installation of a Congress government after the elections.

The former CM's above observations might be an attempt to set at rest such speculations. (UNI)
