No way ‘traitor’ Sachin Pilot can ever become Rajasthan CM: Ashok Gehlot | Jaipur News


JAIPUR: Minister Ashok Gehlot on Thursday branded his bete noire Pilot Sachin a “gaddar” (traitor) who had no chance to step into his post after trying to overthrow his own party’s government two years ago while still holding the post of PCC president.
“How can he (Pilot) become a CM? Gehlot told a TV channel. “I have proof that Rs 10 crore each was distributed to MLAs hiding in a Manesar resort (in 2020) to overthrow the government of Parliament in Rajasthan,” he said, accusing Union interior minister Amit Shah of fueling the rebellion.
Gehlot’s latest assault on his long-standing feud with the Pilot comes amid renewed speculation about a leadership change as Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra approaches the desert state to make landfall. early December.
The pilot, who marched with Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra during the yatra leg of Madhya Pradesh, said Gehlot “shouldn’t feel so insecure about his position that he needs to make false and baseless allegations. so on”. “It is not fitting for someone with so much experience and someone with so many opportunities as a member of the party. . . I think this is not the time for mud; this is the time to work collectively to make sure Bharat Jodo Yatra is effective,” said former deputy CM.
Contrasting his “performance” with the veteran “achievement” of Congress, Pilot said the BJP was defeated in Rajasthan when he was PCC president while Congress met an election defeat in Gehlot’s two previous CM terms. “When the National Assembly returned to power in 2018, the leadership decided to support him as CM and I accepted that,” he said.
Gehlot, whose bid for party chairman in September was derailed by a series of resignations drama because Pilot could be his successor as CM, said the senior congressional commander could replace him with any of his 102 MLAs other than his estranged ex.
“Until now, he has not apologized (about the uprising). If he did, I wouldn’t have to apologize for what happened afterwards,” CM said, alluding to the more than 90 MLAs loyal to him who skipped the Congressional Legislative Party meeting in September. to decide on his successor.
CM claims his loyalists are expressing their anger “at the possibility of a traitor getting the prime minister’s office” rather than revolting against the senior commander.
Early resolution of the Rajasthan crisis: Parliament
Rumors that the Pilot is still in the process of calculation was recently fueled by Gujjar leader Vijay Bainsla, asking the previous pilot to do CM, otherwise the community will block Rahul’s yatra through state.
Pilots stay away from movement. AICC media secretary general Jairam Ramesh issued a statement saying that the party leadership would handle the Gehlot-Pilot feud well. “Ashok Gehlot is a senior and experienced political leader. Any differences he has with his younger colleague will be resolved in a way that strengthens Congress.”
