Following a meeting with Gehlot on Friday evening, Chandna took to Twitter in which he said "there was a meaningful and lengthy discussion on all subjects with the Chief Minister".

He added that Gehlot is the "guardian of the Congress family" in Rajasthan, and whatever decisions the Chief Minister takes will be correct.
