    Pilot, who has been leading rebellion against Gehlot, did not attend the meeting ignoring calls from various leaders.

    "I appeal to Sachin Pilot and all his fellow MLAs to join today''s Legislature Party meeting. While expressing your faith in the ideology and values ​​of the Congress, please make your presence felt and strengthen the hands of Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi," Pande tweeted.

    He told reporters that a second chance is being given to Pilot and hoped that all MLAs come and extend solidarity to the leadership for which people voted to ensure development of the state.

    However, there is no confirmation from the Pilot camp so far on whether they would join the CLP meeting.

    Congress leader Randeep Surjewala had announced the second CLP meeting as the top leadership expressed the desire to woo back dissidents led by Pilot.

    Former party president Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi are among the senior leaders who have been in touch with Pilot, sources said.

    Party leaders had said that 106 of these 122 MLAs attended Monday''s meeting, a claim contested by the Pilot camp.
