Rajasthan political crisis: Live updates
The decision to sack Pilot was taken yesterday after a CLP meeting at the Fairmont Hotel in Jaipur, Rajasthan.
At the meeting, as many as 102 MLAs unanimously demanded that Pilot should be removed from the party.
The Rajasthan Congress

is in turmoil over the past few days. While chief minister

Ashok Gehlot

has blamed the BJP for attempting to destabilise the state government by poaching MLAs, Pilot has been camping in Delhi.
A controversy broke out in Rajasthan after special operation group (SOG) sent a notice to Pilot to record his statement in the case registered by SOG in the alleged poaching of Congress MLAs in the state.
