Sachin Pilot says he felt badly insulted on being called NIKKAMMA !

The Rajasthan crisis seems to have almost come to an end after the truce arrived between the warring leaders of Rajasthan Congress viz Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot n former deputy CM Sachin Pilot after the intervention of Rahul Gandhi n Priyanka Gandhi.

However, despite this truce the MLAs of Ashok Gehlot camp are still annoyed n furious after the reapproachment saying that those who have undignified and insulted the Congress party through gross indescipline by revolting publicly n bringing bad name to the party are being honourably brought back with supposed plum positions in the Cabinet whereas those who have stood with the chief minister strongly especially the six BSP MLAs n independents have not been assured anything. These are the reservations amongst the Ashok Gehlot camp MLAs who had been camping in a hotel away from their families for over a month siding with Gehlot solidly.

On the other hand even after the truce former rebel leader n deputy CM while answering to the question of NDTV reporter has openly said that he as a competent leader n human being felt personally n very badly about the most insulting comments of Ashok Gehlot pronouncing him as NIKKAMMA N AWAARA. This is not acceptable in a civilised society from the mouth of the chief minister of his ( Ashok Gehlot’s) stature. He said he was badly hurt n felt insulted.

On the other hand when the media men asked the same question to Rajasthan CM about his utterings Nikamma etc for his one time deputy Sachin he had no answer but to change the track, accusing the BJP for trying to topple his government. Now 14 th August is nearing, the day Rajasthan assembly session commences to decide Ashok Gehlot’s fate.

Thanks to Priyanka n Rahul Gandhi to have brokered the truce between extremely adamant n annoyed Sachin Pilot , his loyalists 18 MLAs n Gehlot that incumbent CM Ashok Gehlot is today looks highly over confident of winning the floor test which otherwise was on the razor thin majority of 101 MLAs with BSP case already in the courts.

Meanwhile, Sachin Pilot and his 18 MLAs highly opposed to Ashok Gehlot has been back to Jaipur after over a month’s stay in Manesar hotel away from their respective families with an assurance by Central high command of getting selected important cabinet berths n resolving other issues as well.

The ousted tourism minister in Sachin Pilot camp Vishwendra Singh has termed the Ghar Vapsi as the 50, 50 draw of IPL match with the team having come back to pavilion after the orders of the umpires, Rahul Gandhi n Ashok Pilot, though the test match is still to take place.

After the truce while Ashok Gehlot has been victorious to the core with rebel Sachin Pilot having lost his deputy CM’s post including the Rajasthan Congress president’s important post he has been assured of a central assignment, may be of general secretaryship of AICC n a future CM candidate from Rajasthan.

An assurance has also been sought to give few important cabinet berths to his senior MLAs. It may be recalled that his two cabinet ministers Vishwendra Singh n Bhanwar Lal Sharma had already been divested of their cabinet portfolios by Ashok Gehlot when SACHIN too lost his deputy CM ship.
