Jaipur: In order to retain the crown in the Rajasthan Assembly polls in 2013, the Congress is mulling to make either Girja Vyas or Sachin Pilot as the state unit chief.

Speculations are rife in the political corridor that Rajasthan Pradesh Congress Committee president Dr Chandrabhan will be removed due to his controversial remarks.

Despite being close to Rahul, Pilot is sharing good repo with Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and Union Minister CP Joshi. Both the leaders are in favour of appointing Pilot as the Rajasthan PCC chief. The Congress hopes to win faith of Gujjar community by making Pilot as PCC chief.

Congress sources said that Jyoti Mirdha will replace Union minister of state Mahadev Singh Khandela in next reshuffle to keep the crucial jat votes intact. Jyoti is said to be very close to Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi. Jyoti Mirdha’s younger sister marries to Rohtak MP Deepender Singh Hooda.
