Gehlot tells INC high command his govt in trouble again

Here are the three reasons for the complaint from Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot to Sonia Gandhi when things appear quiet in the state


The latest statement of Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, who had once not so long ago managed to save his government, has created a sensation again. He has complained to the high command of the Indian National Congress (INC) that the game of toppling governments has started again. He said the government of Maharashtra, being run by INC’s coalition with the Shiv Sena and the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), is not safe either.

A reference to the BJP in the complaint comes across a veiled reference to Sachin Pilot.

The statement has irked the BJP that has said Gehlot is “shaky” and that he lacks “ courage” and “morale”. The party ruling at the centre said Gehlot was proving incompetent to run the Rajasthan government and, hence, he was “crying wolf”.

Gehlot has specifically mentioned Rajya Sabha member in his statement. Scindia and Pilot are friends. Even when there was a confrontation between Gehlot and Pilot, Scindia, who had joined the BJP, had protested against casting aspersions on his pal.

The pilot faction has so far not reacted to the development.

Why Gehlot has ‘panicked’

Well, he actually might not have. As not only the Rajasthan chief minister but also one of the star campaigners of the INC, he knows that the national focus now is the West Bengal election due in 2021, as the assembly poll in Bihar is over. Within the INC, he wishes to be seen as leading the charge against the rival. While the ‘return’ of Pilot on the previous occasion proved he had never gone in the first place, the drama kept the BJP busy issuing clarifications and refutations, said a political observer in Jaipur.

Secondary in the scheme of things of the INC veteran is the impending changes in the state cabinet, political appointments and new teams of Rajasthan Congress. If the INC high command is impressed by the complaint, it will keep privileges from going to the Pilot faction.

Finally, Gehlot also wishes to be seen as the saviour of the INC government in the state and again, the journalist, who has covered Rajasthan Congress for about three decades, said.

I think around 2 dozen states have similar organizations. They're not a rogue paramilitary force.
