Jaipur: Amid reports of displeasure of former Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot, his supporters have expressed displeasure over the delay in resolving the issues raised by him. About half a dozen MLAs close to Pilot met him at his residence in Civil Lines on Thursday.
According to sources, MLAs Ved Prakash Solanki, Mukesh Bhakar and Ram Niwas Gawaria met Pilot after meeting former minister Vishvendra Singh earlier in the day. MLA Rakesh Pareek also reached Pilot’s residence.
‘Raising voice for the strength of the party’
Solanki, MLA from Chaksu (Jaipur), said that “We are all raising our voices for the strength of the party. Those who question our allegiance to the party are not well wishers of the party.” He said the Congress high command should listen to Pilot and resolve the matter on the lines of Punjab. Raising the question, he said that “in Punjab (Navjot) Sidhu’s hearing was done within 10 days but in Rajasthan even after 10 months the issues raised by Sachin Pilot were not resolved. When Sidhu can be heard in Punjab in 10 days.. why not Pilot?
After meeting with Pilot, Solanki said, “There has been no discussion or hearing on the demands raised by us.” Political appointments should be given to the people of the party.” He said that “at least there should be political appointments. The workers are disappointed and they should be heard. He said that the cabinet should also be expanded.
‘Pilot must be listened to’
Bhakar said that the people who have worked hard for five years to bring the Congress to power in the state should be given their due. He said that “Our struggle is going on. Pilot is demanding something not for himself but for those workers and leaders who struggled for five years. When the disgruntled leaders of Punjab can be heard, why not Pilot? Pilot fought for the party and he should be heard.
Meanwhile, on the death anniversary of Rajesh Pilot, it has been decided to limit the wreath laying ceremony held every year in Bhandana, Dausa on June 11, keeping in mind the Corona protocol. Bandikui MLA Gajraj Khatana has asked people to pay homage to the late leader Pilot from their respective places. Sachin Pilot’s participation in Bhandana’s program has not been confirmed.
The Congress is conducting a nationwide agitation tomorrow against rising inflation. According to party sources, Pilot can participate in this program in Jaipur, although such a program has not been revealed yet.
