“Ajay Maken, who stayed with us in a hotel for 34 days, knows what was happening in Rajasthan… Zafar Islam, who has now become a Rajya Sabha member and had played a key role in Jyotiraditya Scindia joining the BJP, was also at a meeting which lasted for an hour,” Gehlot was quoted by news agency PTI.
