Jaipur: Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot has been sacked as Rajasthan Deputy Chief Minister, says Congress leader Randeep Surjewala. Govind Dotra has been appointed as the new Rajasthan Pradesh Congress Chief.
After a Congress Legislature Party meet for the second consecutive day here, senior Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala announced that Pilot has also been removed as the chief of the Pradesh Congress Committee as part of the disciplinary action against him.
“Congress made Sachin Pilot a Union minister in his 30s, a deputy chief minister in his 40s. We have given Sachin Pilot many opportunities. He has been an MP, MoS and a state party president. I am sad that Sachin Pilot and some of his colleagues have fallen for a trap laid by the BJP. This is unacceptable,” said Surjewala.
