New Delhi: After settling Karnataka, Congress high command said it will be moving on to Rajasthan to make efforts to stop the issue between Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and dissident Congress leader Rajesh Pilot there.
Pilot has reiterated his three demands and given a 15-day ultimatum to the state government to resolve them.
The three demands include that the Rajasthan Public Service Commission should be dissolved and a new organization should be formed, unemployed should get compensation in lieu of paper leak and there should be a high-level inquiry into the corruption that happened during the previous Vasundhara Raje-led BJP government.
They said that Gehlot is all silent at this point of time in view of coming assembly elections and 2024 polls and is neither speaking on Karnataka or Rajasthan issue. However, he is busy implementing his schemes on grounds and to ensure this message reaches to people.
While many of Gehlot camp leaders are anguished after Pilot called Rajasthan government as corrupt, eyebrows are being raised on the silence of high command over Pilot’s yatra and speech.
Will Pilot be given a chance to lead for assembly polls, will Pilot stay in Congress or will he float his own party are questions being exchanged in political corridors.
After his 15-day ultimatum, two days have passed off peacefully but there has been no feedback from any senior leader on his demands.
This confrontation between Gehlot and Pilot started after the formation of the Congress government in Rajasthan in 2018.
