Sachin Pilot accuses Ashok Gehlot of sitting on corruption cases
All is not well in Rajasthan. On Sunday in a fresh attack on Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, former Rajasthan deputy chief minister Sachin Pilot claimed that he appealed to Gehlot to act on the corruption allegations against the previous Vasundhara Raje government, but received no reply. He has announced that he will stage a one-day hunger strike
Holding a press conference in Rajasthan, the Congress MLA attacked the Rajasthan CM over corruption issues and accused the Ashok Gehlot government of not taking any action against Vasundhara Raje over corruption cases. “Due to inaction by Ashok Gehlot government against corruption cases during Vasundhara Raje regime, our opponents can question whether they are hand in gloves,” said the Congress MLA in the press conference.
The former Rajasthan Deputy CM said that he will go on a one-day fast on April 11 on the anniversary of Jyotiba Phule so as to “ensure that investigation is done on issues of corruption”.
“We had fought hard while being in opposition due to which we came to power. While in opposition, we raised several issues of corruption during the Vasundhara Raje government’s regime. Our credibility will be there when the allegations that we are leveled while being in opposition are acted upon,” Pilot added.
The Pilot stated that the issues of corruption were raised by both Ashok Gehlot and him. “I had written letters to Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on March 28, 2022. However, I did not receive any reply. I again wrote a letter on November 2, 2022, seeking action in those cases of corruption whether it is about mining mafia,” said Pilot during the press conference.
Pilot emphasized that he does not believe in revenge politics but wants to take action on the corruption charges ahead of the state election to show the people that there is no gap between their words and actions.
