‘Miffed’ Pilot to embark on five-day yatra against corruption from tomorrow

Jaipur: Raising his pitch against the present regime, former deputy Sachin Pilot on Tuesday announced a five day, 125-km ‘Jan Sangharsh Yatra’ from May 11 over “corruption” and cases of leaking of papers for state government recruitment exams.

Addressing the media here on Tuesday, Pilot said the planned yatra from Ajmer, where the Rajasthan Public Service Commission (RPSC) is headquartered, is not against anyone. “This is on the issue of corruption, this is for the youth who are disappointed due to repeated paper leak cases,” he said.

Pilot also cornered CM Ashok Gehlot for mentioning former CM Vasundhara Raje as a ‘saviour of his government’. “After listening to the CM’s speech in Dholpur, it appears that his leader is not Sonia Gandhi, his leader is Vasundhara Raje Scindia,” he told the media. Pilot’s attack on Gehlot came on a day Rahul Gandhi is in Rajasthan.

Pilot rejected the charge that the dissidents whom he had led took any money from the BJP. “It is condemnable. I deny false and baseless allegations,” he said adding that if there was any evidence, action should have already been taken by the CM. He referred to the boycott in September of a Congress Legislature Party meeting by a majority of the state Congress MLAs, in an apparent show of strength for Gehlot. Pilot said he has been called ‘corona’, ‘gaddar’ (traitor) & ‘nikamma’ (worthless), but the sequence of events reveals who “strengthened” and who is “weakening” the party.
