Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot vs Sachin Pilot: Rajasthan has once again seen a clash between veteran Congress leader and Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and former Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot. Sachin Pilot has recently given such a statement regarding the CM, due to which the distance between the two has started appearing once again.
The hunger strike started 6 days back
It is worth mentioning that earlier the women of three jawans protesting were removed from the protest site outside Congress leader Sachin Pilot’s house here in the early hours of Friday. The police shifted them to hospitals near their residential areas. These heroines have been protesting since February 28 and had started an indefinite hunger strike six days back, demanding a change in the rules so that not only their children but also their relatives can get government jobs on compassionate ground. Their other demands include construction of roads and installation of statues of martyrs in their villages.
Government should listen seriously to the cases of heroines
Reacting to the police action, Pilot told the media in Tonk that the case of the heroines should be heard with sensitivity. He said, ‘‘I still believe that we can fulfill their demand for road construction, house construction and statue installation. This message should not go that we are not ready to listen to the demands of the heroines. It is a different matter whether we agree with them or not, but their demands should be heard keeping ego aside.’’
