If we’re not heard, then we will definitely go to Delhi, says Pilot’s loyalist

IndiaIf we’re not heard, then we will definitely go to Delhi, says Pilot's loyalist

An MLA from Rajasthan, Pilot’s loyalist said if their issues were not addressed, they will go again to Delhi to meet Congress high command.

A legislator from Rajasthan who is among the MLAs considered to be a loyalist to the former deputy chief minister Sachin Pilot said on Wednesday that if the concerns raised by them are not addressed, then they will once again travel to Delhi to seek a solution from the Congress high command.

If we’re not heard, then we will definitely go to Delhi, says Pilot loyalist Rajasthan MLA
Going back in time, in 2020, the party in Rajasthan underwent a political crisis after Sachin Pilot had taken off with 18 of his loyalist MLAs and camped in Delhi and Manesar in Haryana for over a month.

MLA Ved Prakash Solanki loyalist sided with Pilot during the political crisis last year and said, “The main issue is that the cabinet expansion should take place at the earliest. There are many boards and commissions which are vacant. Party workers who had worked hard to bring the Congress to power in the last Assembly elections should be included in those vacant posts. There are only two-and-half years left in this government’s term. At present, those who have worked for the Congress for many years have not been included in political postings where preference has been given to retired bureaucrats,”

“If it doesn’t rain soon, what can the farmer do? He can hope. We have already committed suicide, it’s nothing new. It is our right to go to Manesar or Delhi and I am saying this once again that if we are not heard here then we will definitely go to Delhi. If communicating our stand to the high command is suicide, then such suicides will time and again take place,” MLA Ved Prakash Solanki told reporters on Wednesday.

He added that Congress workers should get their due in the government and that if needed.

“When Sachin Pilot ji was the state Congress president, he had made promises to the public, to the unemployed and other sections of the society that after the Congress comes to power, these promises will be fulfilled. Those have to be fulfilled after all. Congress workers should get their due,” said Solanki.

Last month, Solanki, who has been vocal in expressing his support for Pilot, had said that some Congress MLAs in the state are talking about their phones are being tapped.

The issues of cabinet expansion and political appointments have been a longstanding grouse among the supporters of Pilot, who have been constantly saying that those who worked to bring the Congress in power should be rewarded.
