Rajasthan Political Crisis: Action Likely On Sachin Pilot & His Loyalists As He Snubs Second Congress Meet

Pilot and other MLAs may likely to face action as a result of their absence at the party meeting. The members can also end up losing their membership.


New Delhi, July 14:As the crisis in Rajasthan politics deepens further with Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot sticking to his gun, the minister has now skipped the second Congress Party meeting scheduled in Jaipur on Tuesday. Even as the grand old party has called the minister to attend the meet in its effort to placate him but skipping the meet only sends a strong signal to the Congress that the young leader is not in any mood to budge.


Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has moved Congress legislators to a Fairmont resort on the Delhi-Jaipur highway. Even as most leaders have reached the venue but the meeting got delayed. It is being seen as the last-ditch effort of the Gehlot government to convince the young minister for a truce. However, Pilot and other MLAs are likely to face action as a result of skipping the party meeting.  It is likely that a show-cause notice is issued to the leaders and they may also end up losing their membership of Vidhan Sabha.

The second meeting of Congress Legislature Party in two days began Tuesday morning with no sign of Rajasthan’s Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot making an appearance.

Eighteen other Congress MLAs also did not attend Monday’s meeting, according to sources. But independents and MLAs from other parties participated, expressing support for Gehlot, according to news agency PTI.

Ahead of the meeting, Congress general secretary Avinash Pande issued another appeal to Pilot, who had skipped the first CLP meeting at Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot’s home on Monday.

According to the 10-second video shared last night on Sachin Pilot’s official group show 16 MLAs sitting together in a circle. Pilot is not seen in the video which has been tweeted by Rajasthan Tourism Minister Vishvendra Singh with the caption “Family”.

The fall of Congress in the state may come as a big blow for Congress which has seen its downturn in Madhya Pradesh after the party lost its mojo. The pressure politics is being witnessed at this time and it is waiting and watch situation.

In fact, Pilot who skipped the first meeting of legislators on Monday, a resolution by MLAs called for “strict disciplinary action” against anyone who did anything to weaken the government or the party.

As a result of resistance from Pilot, Gehlot’s numbers have dwindled. While offering a truce, the Chief Minister had invited all 107 Congress MLAs and 15 others – independents and allies. It is claimed that the Gehlot camp is 99 MLAs strong while 19 have sided with Pilot.

In the 200-member assembly, the Congress had 107 MLAs and the support of 13 independents and five from smaller parties. Gehlot seems to be confident because of the numbers on his side.
