Rajasthan : Gujjar leader’s warning to Rahul Gandhi, indicated to ‘make Sachin Pilot CM’

Rajasthan is becoming a problem for the Congress. On explaining to one, the other starts showing his eyes. The Congress seems to be losing ground in the fight between Ashok Gehlot and Sachin Pilot for the post of Chief Minister. Now, just before the Bharat Jodo Yatra reaches Rajasthan, Rahul Gandhi is being pressurized to take a decision by reminding him of the ongoing war between Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and his rival Sachin Pilot in the state. Days after Sachin Pilot openly asked the Congress to act against MLAs who rebelled against the party in September and supported Ashok Gehlot, a Gujjar community leader gave an ultimatum over the Bharat Jodo Yatra Is.

Gujjar leader Vijay Singh Bainsla said on Monday night, “The current Congress government has completed four years and one year is left. Now Sachin Pilot should be made the chief minister. If that happens, you (Rahul Gandhi) are welcome.” Otherwise we will protest.” Talking to NDTV, Bainsla said that we had no option. The present Chief Minister is not implementing the agreement made in 2019. “We are not threatening anyone, but how long are we going to wait? Why are we moving towards confrontation or confrontation?”

The Gujjar community constitutes five to six per cent of the state’s population and is dominant in more than 40 seats, mainly in eastern Rajasthan. This area includes the districts from where the Bharat Jodo Yatra is scheduled to pass. Releasing a video statement after a meeting with community members, Vijay Singh Bainsla said, Rahul Gandhi should either visit Rajasthan with a Gujjar chief minister or come back with an answer on the issue.

Vijay Singh Bainsla said that the community had voted for the Congress in 2018 with the hope that a Gujjar would be made the chief minister. We did not vote for the MLA, we voted for a Gujjar chief minister.” Bainsla also accused the Congress government of not fulfilling the promises made to the Gujjar community. We had made agreements with the government on many issues in 2019 and 2020. , but the agreement is not being implemented. It is not that we are threatening to stop the Bharat Jodo Yatra, but it is the Rajasthan government which is forcing us to take this step by not fulfilling our demands.

Even before this, Bainsla had threatened to stop the Bharat Jodo Yatra. In response to this, State Congress Committee chief Govind Singh Dotasara had then said that no one has the courage to stop the yatra in the state. The Bharat Jodo Yatra will likely start from Jhalawar on December 3 and cover parts of Jhalawar, Kota, Bundi, Sawaimadhopur, Dausa and Alwar in 20 days.

On Friday, Suchitra Arya, vice-chairperson of the Rajasthan Agro Industries Board, batted for the appointment of Sachin Pilot as the chief minister. Before him, Forest Minister Hemaram Chowdhary had said in Barmer that a new face should be given a chance in the coming times. He also claimed that Pilot was instrumental in reviving the Congress in the state and it came to power in 2018.
