Soon after the Congress party announced Sachin Pilot’s removal as deputy chief minister of Rajasthan, chief minister Ashok Gehlot reached Raj Bawan in Jaipur to meet Governor Kalraj Mishra. The Congress on Tuesday also sacked two other state cabinet members after the party passed a resolution at Congress Legislative Party (CLP) meeting in Jaipur to remove Pilot from his currently held positions in Rajasthan. Pilot has also been removed as the chief of Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC). Govind Singh Dotasra has been appointed in his place.
As per reports, as many as 102 MLAs were present during the Congress legislature meeting and unanimously demanded Sachin Pilot’s removal from the party.
“I regret that Sachin Pilot and some of his associates have been swayed by the BJP’s plot and are now conspiring to topple the Gehlot government elected by 8 crore Rajasthanis. It is unacceptable,” Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Sujrewala said during a press briefing, adding that Vishvender Singh and Ramesh Meena have been removed from the state cabinet.
