This is the fourth day in a row when Pilot has attacked the government of his party in the state led by Gehlot, with whom he is in a power tussle ever since the Congress formed the government.
Rajasthan Congress chief said the public rallies held are only Pilot’s personal initiative.
The Rajasthan second-grade teacher recruitment exam paper was leaked last month, following which the test was cancelled.
It is noteworthy that while the Gehlot government has nabbed and arrested several touts from the paper leak gang, the Rajasthan police have been unable to catch the kingpin of the paper leak racket.
As a result, there are chances of another tussle brewing up in the Rajasthan Congress before the budget session that begins on January 23.
Over 90 MLAs of the Gehlot faction, who resigned after boycotting the Congress Legislature Party meeting on September 25, have now been asked to withdraw their resignations.
A look at personalities who made a mark for themselves and in the process shaped the political discourse
Clearly, with assembly elections due next year, the Congress is worried about the impact of the bitter power struggle between CM Gehlot and his former deputy Sachin Pilot.
Barely a few days after Rahul Gandhi's Bharat Jodo Yatra left Rajasthan, Gehlot asserted that nobody can become CM only with the support of one caste.
The escalation of the Gehlot-Pilot rift just ahead of the entry of yatra into the desert state had put the party in a spot but Venugopal's visit to the state last week calmed tempers.
If the Rajasthan CM's camp was mourning the Gujarat debacle, the verdict there gave wind to the sails of the Sachin Pilot camp. Here's why.
Organisation, not individual will be key factor in resolving Congress' Rajasthan leadership row: Ramesh
Gehlot and Pilot, a former deputy CM, have been at loggerheads over chief ministership ever since the Congress won the Rajasthan polls in 2018.
Last week's jibe by Gehlot - and a sharp response from Pilot - came just days before Gandhi's Bharat Judo Yatra is scheduled to enter Rajasthan.
“I don’t want to go into who is saying what, all I can say is both leaders (Gehlot and Pilot) are assets for the party.
Gehlot on Thursday told NDTV that Pilot is a 'gaddar' (traitor) who cannot replace him as he had revolted against Congress in 2020 and tried to topple the state government.
Congress leader Jairam Ramesh said the party will decide on a solution which will strengthen its organisation.
Gehlot, in a recent TV interview had repeatedly called Pilot a traitor and levelled allegations that he colluded with the BJP to topple the government.
The tussle between Gehlot and Pilot has flared up at a time when the Rahul Gandhi-led Bharat Jodo Yatra is poised to enter Rajasthan in a few days.
Gehlot asserted in an interview with a leading TV channel claimed that he had proof that MLAs were offered Rs 5-10 crores during the revolt led by Pilot in 2020.
Asked about the threat from a prominent Gurjar outfit, the former deputy chief minister of the state said, "No matter how hard the BJP tries, the yatra will be successful".
