Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot was given five portfolios — Public works, Rural Development, Panchayati Raj, Science and Technology and Statistics.

The move came after Gehlot met Congress president Rahul Gandhi in New Delhi on Wednesday amid reports of disagreement between the veteran leader and his deputy Pilot over portfolio allocation.
