‘Unity for elections’: PM Modi on Gehlot-Pilot handshake

He accused the Congress of infighting since their election victory in 2018 and stated that the reconciliation between Gehlot and his former deputy is only for the upcoming elections. PM Modi also highlighted the importance of the 2023 elections for Gehlot, who aims to validate his leadership amidst past rebellions.
