After Gehlot, minister targets Pilot for zila poll jolt

JAIPUR: Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot camp politician and youth and sports minister Ashok Chandana on Tuesday claimed that some “Jaichands sold to BJP a year ago” defeated Congress in the panchayat polls while remaining in the party.
His remark was seen as an indirect attack on former deputy CM Sachin Pilot and his loyalist MLAs, one of whom allegedly played a key role in cross-voting in the Jaipur zila parishad election that resulted in Congress losing to BJP despite a majority on Monday.
On Monday night Gehlot, too, made a veiled attack on Pilot, saying that people responsible forhorse-trading in panchayat polls were the same people who had tried to topple the state government earlier. The remark was in reference to Pilot’s revolt against his leadership in July 2020. Despite a Congress majority in the Jaipur zila pramukh poll, the discord started after cross-voting and rebellion by two elected Congress members.
