Watch: Congress workers gherao Sachin Pilot’s car, protest violently against ticket distribution in Rajasthan

Congress party workers created ruckus and protested violently at the party office in Kota after Congress high command suspended Spardha Choudhary for a period of six years for indulging in anti-party activities on Friday.

The 2018 Assembly Election season is just heating up and seems like Congress is caught right in the middle of that heat. A video has now emerged of several Congress workers protesting outside Sachin Pilot’s house in Delhi allegedly over ticket distribution for the upcoming Rajasthan Assembly Elections. The protesters even stopped Pilot’s car from leaving the area.

In the video, one can see several Congress workers shouting slogans and protesting against Scindia. One can even hear a woman screaming, asking Sachin Pilot to get out of his car.

The protests have erupted after massive cash for tickets scandal has broken out within the party. Two Congress leaders, one who was suspended by Congress, have alleged that the party exchanged tickets for money in Rajasthan.

Congress party workers created a ruckus and protested violently at the party office in Kota after Congress high command suspended Spardha Choudhary for a period of six years for indulging in anti-party activities on Friday.

After a meeting between high ranking functionaries of the Congress party which included President Rahul Gandhi, Sachin Pilot, Ashok Gehlot and Rameshwar Lal Dudi, the decision to act against Spardha was taken even though her supporters were protesting outside their party president’s residence.

The protesters accused Pilot of sidelining Spardha and giving the Fulera ticket to Hari Singh in exchange of money.

Spardha spoke to Republic TV and said that the party may have suspended her for 6 years, and she attributed her suspension to Sachin Pilot plotting against the workers who have been working for the party for the past 15 years.

She says that Pilot wanted to ‘suppress her’. “He wanted to suppress me, a woman who has made it to the top on her own, because of which everyone reached outside Rahul Gandhi’s residence and wanted answers from Sachin Pilot as to why he doesn’t want us to contest the elections. All the women workers have been sidelined by the party in the state”, she said.

She then lashed out at Congress President Rahul Gandhi and said, “All the big claims by Rahul Gandhi about empowering women and youth, and now when the time came for him to act, he kept quiet. I don’t understand what happens inside, where money is given, from where money is taken. I can’t tell any of this. Congress just talks, and today I gave a befitting answer to them through the protest outside Rahul Gandhi’s residence. If fighting for the people and asking for your rights is indiscipline, then I accept it. Congress will suffer.”

Farmer leader Baran Ramesh Meena alleged that on the order of ex-minister Pramod Jain Bhaya, his ticket was cancelled.

Speaking to Republic TV, he said, “Whatever Rahul Gandhi said about rich not getting ticket and poor getting a chance, it is not happening in our district. This all has happened under the command of Pramod Jain Bhaya. There was exchange of ticket for money. Everyone in the AICC is saying he paid Rs 6 crore to get three tickets”.
