Sachin Pilot questions Vasundhara Raje’s association with Rajasthan, tries to play ‘outsider’ card

Congress had called PM Modi and Yogi Adityanath as 'outsiders' during the campaign for Karnataka elections.

As Rajasthan moves closer towards the State Assembly elections, a war of words between the Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has erupted in Rajasthan. Congress President Sachin Pilot has gone into a pitched verbal battle with Rajasthan’s chief minister, Vasundhara Raje, questioning her personal root’s and origin in the state, as per reports.

Sachin Pilot has hit out at the incumbent BJP CM by questioning her ‘association with the state’ while claiming that ‘he has been in Rajasthan since he was two-and-a-half-years-old’.

“I came to this holy land when I was 2.5 years old. However, our Chief Minister has been associated with this land when she was 22-23 years old,” said Sachin Pilot while addressing a rally in Rajasthan.

The BJP MLA and Rajasthan Chief Minister, Vasundhara Raje, in reply to Pilot’s comment, lashed out by saying, ‘Meri Doli yaha aayi thi aur meri arthi bhi yahi se jayegi’. (I came here after marriage and my final rites will also be held here). She reportedly added that Pilot should tell people about his paternal and marital home instead.

Earlier too, Sachin Pilot had taken a dig at the Chief Minister saying that she could be changing her assembly seat in the coming elections due to unpopularity in her present constituency Jhalrapatan. Pilot had also pointed to alleged differences between Raje and BJP president Amit Shah.

BJP spokesperson Satish Poonia, however, had said, “This is all baseless talk. Even if that happens, a change of constituency is not unconstitutional.” Poonia also rebuffed Congress’ claims about differences between Raje and Shah.

Congress’ habitude had compelled them to adopt the same rhetoric during the run-up to the Karnataka assembly polls as well. Rahul Gandhi and his party had played the ‘Bahari’ card calling Prime Minister Modi and Yogi Adityanath as “outsiders” with respect to Karnataka. Even during the UP elections campaign, Priyanka Gandhi had called PM Modi an ‘outsider’.

Rajasthan is set to hold assembly elections on December 7. The results will be declared on December 11 along with 3 results of Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan, and Mizoram.
