'Remove Sachin Pilot' resolution passed at Raj CLPJuly 14, 2020 13:35
Breaking news from the Congress Legislative Party (CLP) meeting at Fairmont Hotel in Jaipur. 102 MLAs are present and have unanimously demanded that Sachin Pilot should be removed from the party.
The second meeting of Congress Legislature Party in two days began Tuesday morning with Rajasthan's Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot turning down appeals to participate. Ahead of the meeting, Congress general secretary Avinash Pande made another bid to reach out to the rebel leader, who had skipped the first CLP meeting at Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot's home on Monday. Eighteen other Congress MLAs had also not attended Monday's meeting, according to sources. But independents and MLAs from other parties participated, expressing support for Gehlot. Tuesday's meeting was said to be a second chance for Pilot, who is also the president of the state unit of the party. But MLAs considered close to Pilot were again not seen there, and are calling for a floor test in the 200-member state assembly.
