"Ultimately Janta Janardan decides fate of govt," says Sachin Pilot
Jaipur: Congress leader Sachin Pilot on Saturday targeted the BJP-led Central government over alleged unemployment and inflation, while highlighting that the people who reign supreme in a democracy have the final say in choosing a government.
This remark was made by Pilot after he casted his vote in Jaipur on Saturday morning. The former Deputy Chief Minister of Rajasthan said that voting is underway at a "robust pace" amid a peaceful atmosphere. Voters are exercising their franchise, he said.
He said that the fate of candidates belonging to different ideologies is ultimately decided by the "Janta Janardan," who "reigns supreme" in democracy.
"Everything is in their hands,' Pilot, the senior Congress leader, said, adding that voters express their opinion when they cast their vote for a candidate of a particular party.
Voting for 199 Rajasthan member assembly is currently underway and will continue till 6: 00 pm.
