Rajasthan Assembly Election-2023: Ashok Gehlot-Sachin Pilot Rift Set To Widen; Pilot To Hold Fast Against His Own Govt



JAIPUR: Elections in the desert state of Rajasthan are to be held by the end of the year. The speed with which the BJP is engaged in preparations for booth management at the ground level and Modi-Shah are monitoring, the preparations of the Congress are not visible far and wide.


The visits of Gehlot and Pilot are definitely happening, but due to the separate meetings and visits of both, instead of positive, a negative message is being sent to the public.


Loss due to factionalism

In the current situation, if the Congress enters the election field, it will suffer a direct loss due to factionalism. It has now become necessary for the Congress to end the Gehlot-Pilot factionalism as soon as possible and start preparing for the elections. Because there is very little time left in the election.


But the factionalism in increasing instead of decreasing in the Rajasthan Congress. In the latest development, Sachin Pilot has once again raised questions on his own party's government. Pilot called a press conference on Sunday.


Pilot will observe fast at Shaheed Smarak

He said, "I had complained to Chief Minister Gehlot against former CM Vasundhara Raje, but Gehlot did not take any action." In protest against this, Pilot will go on a one-day fast at the Martyr's Memorial in Jaipur on 11 April.

Pilot said, "No action was taken against corruption that took place in the Vasundhara government. While being in the opposition, we had promised that an inquiry would be conducted. There are 6-7 months left for the election, the opponents can spread confusion that there is some collusion." Action will have to be taken soon to prove that it is not. So that Congress workers feel that there is no difference between our words and actions.


We didn't keep our promise: Pilot


Pilot had called a press conference at his home in Jaipur. He said, “While being in the opposition during the Vasundhara government, we had raised our voice about scams worth Rs 45,000 crore and had promised that we would investigate these scams in a fair manner and punish the guilty if voted to power. But we did nothing. We didn't keep our promise and this sends a wrong message to public."


Sachin Pilot said- "What is the reason that despite coming to power again and again, we do not take any action on the allegations made by us while in the opposition. When we go for elections again, people would believe our words. So it is necessary that we take some action."  


Pilot said the central government has been targeting the people of the opposition for some time now. 95 per cent of the leaders served notices or raided by the ED are from the opposition, he said.


Gehlot will not attend NSUI programme

After the announcement of Sachin Pilot's fast, Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot will not attend the foundation day program of NSUI at Rajasthan University. Now CM Gehlot will be involved in it virtually.
