Rift in Rajasthan Congress widening, party MLA demands Ashok Gehlot be replaced with Sachin Pilot

Recently, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot blamed Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot for the defeat of his son Vaibhav from Jodhpur constituency. Following this development, Congress MLA Prithviraj Meena suggested that Pilot should replace Gehlot.

The Congress party in Rajasthan seems to be in troubled waters as rebellious voices within the party are growing with each passing day. Ever since the party suffered a humiliating defeat in the recently concluded Lok Sabha elections, it is struggling with internal conflicts in Madhya Pradesh, Karnataka, and Rajasthan.

Recently, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot blamed Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot for the defeat of his son Vaibhav from Jodhpur constituency. Following this development, Congress MLA Prithviraj Meena demanded that Pilot should replace Gehlot. He also recommended Gehlot to take responsibility for the party’s miserable poll performance in the state.

Talking to media persons in party’s Jaipur office today, Meena said, “A Chief Minister is responsible for an election defeat when the party is in power and when it is in the opposition, the responsibility lies with the party president.” Meena accused Gehlot of being obsessed with his son. He condemned Gehlot’s statement asking Pilot to take responsibility of Vaibhav’s defeat in Jodhpur.

Meena blamed Gehlot for the loss and said, “The statement by the Chief Minister is totally wrong and against the interest of the party. He himself should take responsibility for the Jodhpur seat.”

A few days ago another Congress MLA Harish Chandra Meena had gone on hunger strike and had staged a protest against his own party’s government in Rajasthan. The MLA was protesting against the inaction of the government in the death of a truck driver after allegedly being thrashed by the police.

Meanwhile Pilot announced that in the aftermath of the party’s dismal performance in the Lok Sabha elections, booth wise reports have been sought to assess and evaluate the factors leading to the drub.


Addressing the media, Pilot said that Congress bagged much fewer seats across the country than expected. He added while Congress President had already taken responsibility for the party’s poor show, more needs to be done in this regard. Therefore, they would prepare a roadmap after analyzing the ground situation in different states in preparation for the upcoming state elections.

Congress failed to win even a single seat out of 25 seats in Rajasthan. In Uttar Pradesh, 63 out of the 67 fielded candidates even lost their deposits.
