In Rajasthan, a political stir is intensifying over the displeasure of Sachin Pilot and his camp. Pilot has expressed his displeasure over the promises made to him last year not being fulfilled even after 10 months. Meanwhile, Pilot is in touch with Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi. It is said that he had a talk with Priyanka on his phone late last night. The details of the conversation are not known, but the pilot is believed to have spoken to Priyanka.
The pilots have left for Delhi today. In Delhi, he can meet senior Congress leaders. Now eyes will be on when the pilot meets Priyanka. Because Priyanka had an important role in persuading him after the rebellion last time. It is obvious that now the Congress’s concern about Pilot must have increased because Jitin Prasad, who was close to Rahul Gandhi, had joined the BJP two days ago.
At the same time, Pilot is also expected to meet Congress’ Rajasthan in-charge Ajay Maken and organization general secretary KC Venugopal in Delhi. Both these leaders are part of the conciliation committee formed last year on the pilot issue. However, the report of this committee has not come even after 10 months and this is also the reason for the displeasure of the pilot.
Despite his displeasure, Sachin hinted at fighting in Congress
Sachin Pilot has expressed displeasure with the Ashok Gehlot government but has also indicated that he will fight only by staying in the Congress. Political experts say that Pilot’s main fight is not with Congress but with Ashok Gehlot. The struggle for power between these two will continue.
Signs of lack of MLA near Sachin
Last year, when Sachin Pilot did the barricade, at that time 18 MLAs were seen with him, who were in his support. But in the developments in the last two days, political analysts are assuming that there is no crisis in front of the Gehlot government, with Pilot showing fewer MLAs.
On Thursday, only five MLAs had reached Pilot’s residence to meet him. Whereas on Friday, only three MLAs had reached the program of Pilot’s father’s death anniversary. However, due to Corona, this program was brief. Sachin Pilot reached Jirota and Bhandana villages of Dausa on Friday morning and paid floral tribute to his late father and former Union Minister Rajesh Pilot. Many speculations were made after the pilot suddenly reached Dausa at 9.30 am amid reports that his pre-scheduled program was cancelled. Here he first paid floral tributes at the pilot memorial located in Jirota village and then at the memorial in Bhandana village. After a brief program of about 20 minutes, the pilots left for Jaipur.
In his brief interaction with the media, he did not comment on the political developments. Dausa MLA Murarilal Meena, Bandikui MLA GR Khatana, Vaira MLA Amar Singh Jatav were present. Sikrai MLA Mamta reached after Bhupesh Pilot’s departure. Every year a prayer meeting is held in Bhandana on the death anniversary of Rajesh Pilot, but this time only a wreath-laying program was kept due to Corona. On Thursday, MLAs Rakesh Pareek, Ramniwas Gavadia, Mukesh Bhakhar, Vedprakash Solanki, Suresh Modi met at Pilot’s residence.
