Amid fight with Ashok Gehlot, Sachin driver can address 2 events on Monday


Days after targeting the Ashok Gehlot government for “inaction” over alleged corruption when the BJP ruled Rajasthan, former deputy chief minister Sachin Pilot is set to speak at two state public functions on Monday.

Mr Pilot sat on a day of fasting in Jaipur on Tuesday, urging the Gehlot government to act on alleged cases of corruption when the BJP ruled the state under Vasundhara Raje.

After his one-day fast, Mr Pilot said he had raised the issue of corruption under BJP rule and promised the people of Rajasthan that action would be taken against the culprits once Congress was in power. power. But four years after Congress came to power, no action has yet been taken.

Meanwhile, Rajasthan Assembly Opposition Leader and BJP MP Rajendra Rathore on Friday asked why Pilot did not raise the issues in the House or during the early days of government if he had any evidence .

Mr Rathore said Mr Pilot’s plane is on ‘autopilot’ mode and only time will tell if it will land or crash.

“Sachin Pilot’s target is Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot who called him ‘nakara’ and ‘nikamma’,” he told reporters in Bharatpur.
