Quite in contrast to celebrations after its resounding success in K’taka the Congress faces a irritating corn in the feet following the combative stance between chief minister Ashok Gehlot and Sachin Pilot.

The schism surfaced just a week after Pilot started his Jan Sangharsh Yatra from Ajmer to demand action by Gehlot against alleged corruption by the previous Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government led by Vasundhara Raje.



Although Pilot said that his march was not against anyone in particular, the tone of it being anti-Gehlot was set.

“It looks like the CM’s leader is not Sonia Gandhi but Vasundhara Raje,” Pilot had said after Gehlot at an event in Dholpur remarked that Raje did not let Pilot’s 2020 rebellion succeed.

“In 2020 (when Sachin Pilot rebelled), Vasundhara Raje said that it is not Rajasthan’s tradition to make governments fall using money. Was she wrong? I will never forget what I went through back then,” Gehlot had said.

Both leaders are slated to meet Mallikarjun Kharge in Delhi on Friday, 26 May, to decide the strategy for the upcoming Rajasthan elections but will the Congress president be able to engineer a peaceful resolution like he did in Karnataka?

The Rajasthan Congress infighting needs to be looked at from four key aspects:

Pilots intentions were clear. What he wanted is not hidden.

He wanted to replace Ghelot and become the chief minister whereas he said that he had three major demands and till end of May.

What after that?


Disbanding of Rajasthan’s public service commission and its reconstitution

Compensation for those affected by government job exam paper leak cases

A high-level probe into charges of corruption against the previous Vasundhara Raje government.

But the time has passed already and Sachin Pilot has nearly missed the bus.

Will he launch a new outfit? Or join the BJP?
