CM Ashok Gehlot is taking an aggressive stand this time. If we look at the statements of the CM on different occasions in about 20 days, then the displeasure towards the pilot camp is clearly visible. Here, even Sachin Pilot did not share the stage with CM Gehlot for a long time.

Before the Congress’s Chintan Camp in Udaipur, everything is looking fine in Rajasthan, but political experts are considering it as peace for some time. In the future, there is a possibility of increasing tension between the Gehlot-pilot camps on many issues.

Ashok Gehlot and Sachin Pilot have recently met Sonia Gandhi. Despite meetings with the high command, the tussle between Gehlot and the pilot has not subsided. Supporters of both the leaders are clashing on social media every day.

After meeting Sonia Gandhi on Thursday, Sachin Pilot said on the question of strategy and change of face that the same is being discussed. Sonia Gandhi will decide. This statement of Pilot was linked to the change of CM in Rajasthan.

Gehlot denied this in the program of the Revenue Service Council on Sunday itself and said that do not fall into the rumours. My resignation is lying with the permanent Sonia Gandhi, there should be no discussion of changing the chief minister. Both these statements made it clear that all is not in common between the two camps. Supporters of Pilot are attackers on CM and supporters of Gehlot are attackers on Pilot. Pilots respond only in supporter attacking mode.

Less than a year and a half is left for the elections in Rajasthan. Gehlot is claiming to implement the old pension scheme and repeat the government on the basis of the budget. After meeting Sonia Gandhi, Sachin Pilot said that we have to break the tradition of changing the government. For this, a lot of hard work will have to be done in Rajasthan. The pilot does not agree with Gehlot’s style.

Due to the tussle in the Congress, till now only organization officers have not been able to become district and block level. Pilot is advocating for early completion of pending appointments in the government and the organisation. Pilot is also said to be angry because Gehlot supporters are getting more importance in the government organization.

Political discussions on Gehlot’s attacking stand

The way Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot is attacking the Sachin Pilot camp in his statements, it is being seen as a political signal. Gehlot’s repeated mention of the rebellion of the pilot camp is also being seen as a sign of further changes. Political observers are seeing Gehlot’s remarks only as a strategy to prevent possible changes.
