Rajasthan Political Crisis: Sachin Pilot Sacked As Deputy CM And PCC Chief
Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot sacked Sachin Pilot as the Deputy CM after the Congress Legislature Party meeting (CLP) passed resolutions.
Sachin Pilot has been removed as Deputy Chief Minister and Rajasthan Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) chief, announced Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala on Tuesday (July 14). “Sachin Pilot, Vishvendra Singh and Ramesh Meena have been removed from the post of Deputy Chief Minister and Ministerial posts respectively. Sachin Pilot has also been removed as the Rajasthan PCC Chief, said Surjewala. Govind Singh Dotasra has been appointed as the new PCC Chief, he added. “Sachin Pilot, few Congress ministers and MLAs got involved in the conspiracy to topple the Congress government by getting entangled within the trap of BJP.”
The decision was taken after a Congress Legislature Party (CLP) meeting at the Fairmont Hotel in Jaipur, Rajasthan, earlier today. The Rajasthan Congress is in turmoil over the past few days. While Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has blamed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for attempting to destabilise the State government by poaching MLAs, Sachin Pilot has been camping in Delhi. A controversy broke out in Rajasthan after Special Operation Group (SOG) sent a notice to Pilot.
