Sachin Pilot slammed the BJP-led Union government for failing to check inflation as he pointed out that only his party can replace the BJP at the national level.
Political observers said the government seemed far more stable than in the first two years.
The 11 cabinet-rank and four ministers of state (MoS) sworn in by Governor Kalraj Mishra included five considered to be in the Pilot camp.
Speaking to TNIE, Sachin expressed satisfaction with the steps taken by the Congress high command and said his ‘karmabhoomi’ would also be decided by the high command.
If the farmers are demanding a law and regulation for MSP, it is a genuine demand and the government should act to fulfil it, he said.
