Amid the controversy that erupted after Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot called his former deputy Sachin Pilot a traitor, Congress general secretary KC Venugopal met both leaders and advised them to resolve the differences.

KC Venugopal was in Jaipur on November 29 to review preparations for Rahul Gandhi-led Bharat Jodo Yatra, which is scheduled to enter Rajasthan on December 4.

Sources said Venugupal held a two-hour-long meeting with the Congress legislators and warned them to refrain from making incendiary public statements.

Even the party will not hesitate to drop leaders from the council of ministers if found violating the party's norms, sources added. Venugopal later had a closed-door meeting with Ashok Gehlot and Sachin Pilot.
