Sachin Pilot’s Dausa rally created new takeaways in the Rajasthan politics, as reports are coming in the event was a huge success and a show of strength. Jat leader draws massive crowd on father’s death anniversary, second only to Ashok Gehlot in size on 11th June.
Sachin achieved what he wanted; to keep Congress at tenterhooks. He reaffirmed his three demands at the rally and he is not backing down from them.
Challenging Timing for Congress: Pilot’s Emphasis on Three Demands
His three demands as he started in the 11th May padayatra from Ajmer were:
– Action against corruption by the previous BJP government
– Reconstitution of RPSC and compensation for paper leak victims
– A larger role for him and his supporters in the Congress party
“I stand firm on my past commitments and pledge not to backtrack in the future,” he affirmed unequivocally. With the crowd cheering in support, he reiterated his demand for an inquiry into the alleged corruption of the former BJP administration. Congress leader Sachin Pilot pledged to continue fighting for justice, fairness, and the well-being of youth and farmers.
His repeated statements come with a caveat: he points fingers at his own party. Divergent messages within the Congress may hinder collective stewardship in elections, potentially causing confusion among Rajasthanis and benefiting the BJP.
How the underling BJP is faring in this drama?
Vasundhara Raje’s return stirred the Rajasthan BJP, capturing attention after four years of neglect by state leadership. The BJP is leveraging her charisma and crowd-drawing abilities. Amidst Congress infighting, the BJP has potential gains but shying from a bigger role.
Reports indicate the BJP’s interest in promoting Ms. Scindia, while analysts note the absence of Gulab Chand Kataria’s. Kataria, a prominent figure in Rajasthan politics, made a significant impact as the opposition leader in the Vidhan Sabha before his taking the role of Governor of Assam. Notably, Gulabji’s sway over 30-40 legislative seats in the influential Mewar-Wagad region, encompassing SC, ST, and Jain communities, underscores its importance. To address this, CP Joshi was appointed Rajasthan party chief, leveraging the PM’s works to appeal to voters. Analysts express doubts about the BJP’s strategy, citing their failure to effectively address law and order, female safety, and corruption issues in the state.
Sachin Pilot’s Dausa rally in Rajasthan has created significant ripples in state politics, drawing attention for its success and showcasing his strength. Pilot remains resolute in his three demands, showing no signs of wavering. However, his criticism of his own party raises concerns about unity and effective leadership within the Congress. The BJP, on the other hand, is leveraging Vasundhara Raje’s return, aiming to benefit from her popular appeal. While the BJP stands to gain, it remains a secondary player in the political landscape. The appointment of CP Joshi as Rajasthan party chief and the party’s interest in promoting Ms. Scindia reflect their strategic moves. However, analysts remain skeptical about the BJP’s ability to effectively address key issues such as law and order, female safety, and corruption. As Rajasthan heads into the upcoming elections, the political scenario promises to be dynamic and challenging for all parties involved.
