Rajasthan Political Crisis LIVE Updates: Will Continue Working for Better India, Tweets Sachin Pilot After Calling a Truce; SC to Hear Merger Pleas of 6 BSP MLAs


Rajasthan Political Crisis LIVE Updates: Former deputy chief minister Sachin Pilot, who engineered a rebellion against the Ashok Gehlot government with 18 more MLAs, late last night tweeted that he stood firm “in my belief & will continue working for a better India, to deliver on promises made to the people of Rajasthan & protect democratic values we cherish” after returning to the party fold post a month-long political crisis in the state. Thanking interim chief Sonia Gandhi as well as Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, Pilot’s tweet came hours after the Congress said Pilot will work in the “interest of the Congress” and a three-member committee will be set up to address the grievances expressed by him and other aggrieved MLAs, signalling an “amicable resolution” of nearly a month-long Rajasthan crisis ahead of the crucial assembly session from August 14.

The meeting between Rahul Gandhi and Pilot at the former party chief’s residence, where Priyanka Gandhi Vadra was also present, lasted two hours during which they had a “frank, open and conclusive” discussion. While the Congress did not give details of what transpired in the Rahul-Pilot meeting, AICC general secretary (Organisation) KC Venugopal said in a statement that following the meeting, Sonia Gandhi has decided that the AICC will constitute a three-member committee to “address the issues raised by Pilot and the aggrieved MLAs and arrive at an appropriate resolution thereof”. “Shri Sachin Pilot has committed to working in the interest of the Congress party and the Congress government in Rajasthan,” it added. On his part, Pilot said, “We raised issues of principles before the Congress leadership, and welcome their assurance of a time-bound redressal of our grievances.”
