Congress leader and former Deputy Chief Minister of Rajasthan, Sachin Pilot, has made a significant claim in Tonk. He stated that the first list of Congress candidates for the assembly elections will be released in October. He assured that they will contest the elections with strength and aim to form the government once again.
Meanwhile, Pilot has indicated his intention to contest from the Tonk assembly seat. While addressing a public gathering, Pilot said that the party will decide who will take up what responsibility. He appealed to the people, saying that when he contested from Tonk earlier, they had supported him with a significant margin. This time, they need to support him even more.
Taking a dig at the BJP during his speech, Pilot said that the BJP has brought the women’s reservation bill to make noise. They say one thing and do something else. He questioned the need for amendments if they were committed to providing reservations to women.
He said, “Our government had passed the women’s reservation bill in the state legislature, and it could have been implemented. The BJP’s bill will take 6-7 years to become law. There will be a census, verification, and only then will it be implemented. The central government has done all this to create a buzz.”
During the gathering, Sachin Pilot also made veiled criticisms of state-level leaders, suggesting that there is disunity among BJP leaders. He stated that central leaders have little faith in state leaders, which is why central ministers are frequently coming to Rajasthan.
