The Congress Working Committee (CWC), the main decision-making body of the party, was reformed by Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge on Sunday. The crucial panel contains 39 general members, including the presidents of the Youth Congress, National Students’ Union of India, Mahila Congress, and Seva Dal, as well as 32 permanent invitees, including several state in-charges, and 13 special invitees.

One of the newest CWC members is Pilot. Pilot stated on X in Hindi, “I extend my appreciation to revered Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge, CPP Chairperson Sonia Gandhi, and former president Rahul Gandhi for appointing me to the Congress Working Committee. The former deputy chief minister of Rajasthan said, “We shall reinforce the traditions, policies, and philosophy of the Congress and carry it more strongly to the people.

The CWC’s decision to include Pilot comes shortly before the Rajasthan Assembly elections later this year. Pilot and Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot have been in a power struggle ever since the state’s Congress took control in 2018.

On the recommendation of party president Kharge, Pilot had made it plain last month that he had put Gehlot behind him. He said that under such circumstances, collegial leadership was the “only way” to go ahead as the assembly elections approached. Pilot organized a coup against the Gehlot administration in 2020, which resulted in his removal from his positions as the party’s state unit president and deputy chief minister.

An effort by the high command to alter the leadership in Rajasthan last year was unsuccessful because Gehlot’s supporters dug in their heels and prevented the holding of a parliamentary party meeting.
