Gujarat Congress strongman Shankersinh Vaghela met Rahul Gandhi on Friday, a day after he courted controversy by meeting BJP president Amit Shah. Vaghela, a former Gujarat Chief Minister and currently the Leader of Opposition in Gujarat Assembly, said he was not going anywhere and was a loyal Congressman.
His meeting with Gandhi lasted around half an hour and he was accompanied by Gujarat PCC chief Bharatsinh Solanki. Sources said the two leaders discussed the party's strategy for the upcoming Assembly polls in the state slated later in 2017.
Sources also said that Vaghela also sought to clarify his position to the party vice president on his meeting with Shah. Vaghela later told reporters that he was a loyal Congressman and would not quit the party and go anywhere.
He said he was committed to the party and would work towards helping it win the upcoming polls. His meeting with Shah on Thursday triggered speculation over his future plan.
