Gehlot said- We had a committee meeting in which Priyanka Gandhi was there, KC Venugopal was there and Ajay Maken was there. The stories I read make me feel ashamed that where is the media going. Till the time the cabinet is not reconstituted, the media is caught in the game of rumors. Gehlot was interacting with the media after meeting Gandhian Subbarao at SMS Hospital on Saturday.
