Modi government has hurt dignity and democratic system of India: Pilot targets Centre over farm laws
"The continuous failure of negotiations between the central government and the farmers has revealed BJP's lack of understanding towards farming and the rights of tillers," Pilot tweeted.
"We are making the farmers aware of the disadvantages of the laws. The farmers are agitating peacefully and the government should accept their demands," Pilot said.
Reconstitution of Congress' state unit has to be done in next two months: Former Rajasthan Deputy CM Sachin Pilot
Sachin Pilot reached Ashok Gehlot's residence in the evening to attend the dinner the latter arranged for the party leaders.
Former Rajasthan Deputy CM Sachin Pilot said the BJP is pushing farmers into darkness with the new agriculture laws.
Sachin Pilot, upset since being denied the CM post in 2018, staged a rebellion in July. Including him, 19 Congress MLAs stayed away from legislative party meetings.
The former deputy chief minister of Rajasthan said the Congress is working hard to ensure that the organisation and the state government fulfil the promises made to the people of the state.
Dotasara's comments came after Union Minister Ramdas Athawale claimed that former Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot would soon bring down the Ashok Gehlot government.
Congress leader Sachin Pilot asked the Centre to accept the demands of the agitating farmers with immediate effect.
In a stark contrast to the trend of the ruling party in a state dominating local elections, the opposition BJP has done better.
While inaugurating a Congress office in Sirohi district through a virtual conference on Saturday evening, Gehlot alleged that BJP and Amit Shah are again trying to destabilise his government.
The BJP hit back, saying Gehlot has failed to run the government and is frustrated and making unreasonable allegations.
Two journalists, including the former deputy CM's media manager Lokendra Singh, were booked by the Jaipur Police for allegedly putting out fake news in August.
He said the BJP government under Chouhan had done nothing for farmers, and claimed the highest number of agriculture-related suicides.
He also said that the Grand Alliance is now setting agenda for Bihar's development as its promise of sanctioning 10 lakh government jobs at the first cabinet meeting after coming to power.
In the Congress manifesto, from which Pilot is missing, CM Ashok Gehlot, his urban development minister Shanti Dhariwal and new PCC chief Govind Singh Dotasara are shown quite prominently.
