Rajasthan Political Crisis,An open revolt by Congress number two leader in Rajasthan,Sachin Pilot,has led the party’s government in the state into a crisis situation.After a day of uncertainties and hectic meetings,the party packed off at least 100 MLAs to a resort in the evening.
Pilot,who showed no signs of bowing down and even skipped a meet called by his party,was later sacked Rajasthan’s Deputy Chief Minister earlier today.
Sachin Pilot In Tweet Reacted Minutes after being dismissed from every office he held in Rajasthan, Sachin Pilot tweeted,”The truth can be harassed but not defeated.”
It was the 42-year-old’s first public comment in nearly two days,says “Nobody wants to leave his home, but can’t continue to put up with this kind of humiliation,my MLAs and supporters are extremely hurt and I will have to listen to them,” he said
Even as the party sacked him this afternoon as Deputy Chief Minister and as the president of the Congress in the state,it urged him to return its messages and calls.
Sources say Pilot made it clear that he would not yield on his demand of wanting to be promoted to Gehlot’s job.The Congress conveyed to him that would not be possible,but that it would give him better and more posts for his team.Pilot said his best offer was that the party announce now that he would be Chief Minister for the final year of this government’s tenure.The proposition failed to merit the Congress’consideration.
Though Gehlot and Pilot have clashed habitually,the inflection point for what has turned into break point was Pilot receiving a notice from the state police that made him part of an investigation into determining whether the BJP was attempting to buy Congress legislators to dissolve the Congress government in Rajasthan.
