Gehlot also added that “nobody would have ever heard in history that a party’s state head is busy toppling his own government”
JAIPUR| Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Monday once again launched a scathing attack on his former deputy Sachin Pilot saying that he always knew that he was “worthless” and “good for nothing”, but kept quiet in party’s interest.
Gehlot said while addressing a press conference, “Hum jaante the ye nikamma hai, nakara hai, koi kaam nahi kar raha hai, khali logon ko ladwa raha hai. Main yahan koi baingan bechne nahi aaya hun, main koi sabzi bechne nahi aaya hun, CM banne aya hoon (I knew that he was useless, good for nothing, and was only there to induce fight among people. I am not here to sell vegetables. I am the CM). But still we did not question this in the interest of the party.”
“Rajasthan is the only state where no demand was raised to change the PCC president in seven years,” the chief minister said, adding that Pilot “used to talk about a conspiracy to topple his government but nobody believed that he (Pilot), having an innocent face, good command over English and Hindi and influence over the media across the country, can do this.”
Gehlot also added that “nobody would have ever heard in history that a party’s state head is busy toppling his own government.”
Gehlot also claimed that some MLAs who were crying that their phones were snatched away, wanted to return. Earlier in the day, Congress MLA Girraj Singh alleged that Pilot offered him Rs 35 crore to join the BJP.
