NEW DELHI:Amid talks of a truce with rebel Rajasthan Congress leader Sachin Pilot, party General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi met former party chief Rahul Gandhi at his residence at Tughlak Lane here on Monday.

The party is hoping for a breakthrough with the rebel Rajasthan MLAs led by Pilot but there is still no official word.

The party officially did not react to these political developments as Rajya Sabha MP K.C. Venugopal, who was assigned to talk to the rebels, declined to comment.

Sources say that the party hopes for an early settlement but there are no signs of a happy ending yet.

Reports say that Pilot has sought an appointment with Rahul Gandhi but it could not be confirmed from his office, despite repeated attempts.

But sources say that party treasurer Ahmed Patel is instrumental in reaching out to the rebel MLAs and has asked them to come back to the party and air their grievances before the leadership.

However, there is a strict message that the Chief Minister's post is not negotiable and Sachin Pilot, if he wants to return to the party, will have to wait for some time for some adjustments.
