Sachin Pilot Plans Fast Against Corruption, Accuses Ashok Gehlot of Inaction on Complaints Against Vasundhara Raje
Former Deputy Chief Minister of Rajasthan, Sachin Pilot, has announced a fast against corruption, alleging that Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot did not take any action on complaints made against former Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje. Pilot claims that several complaints were filed against Raje during her tenure, but Gehlot failed to act on them despite being informed multiple times.
Pilot's latest accusations have put the spotlight back on the ongoing power struggle within the Rajasthan Congress. The rift between Pilot and Gehlot came to a head last year, leading to a rebellion by Pilot and his supporters. The situation was eventually resolved, but the latest allegations made by Pilot could reignite tensions within the party.
While the Congress has dismissed Pilot's allegations as baseless and politically motivated, the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has used the opportunity to attack the ruling party. The BJP has demanded an investigation into the matter, accusing Gehlot of protecting Raje.
Meanwhile, Raje has remained silent on the matter, but the BJP has come out in her defense, calling her a "clean leader" who always worked for the welfare of the people of Rajasthan.
The upcoming state assembly elections in Rajasthan have only added to the political drama, with both the Congress and the BJP gearing up for the contest. The people of Rajasthan will have to wait and see how this latest development impacts the political landscape of the state in the months to come.
