We are doing this for Self-respect not for any post, says Pilot supporting MLAs

  • | Thursday | 16th July, 2020

The statement was issued through Pilot’s official WhatsApp group and signed by Congress leaders Vishvender Singh, Ramesh Meena and Deepender Shekhawat.

Congress MLAs with Pilot have released a statement through their official WhatsApp group claiming that they are fighting to protect their dignity.

In a message circulated by the Pilot camp on WhatsApp, they said, “We have for years worked with dedication, devotion and service towards the party. And we are taking a stand to protect our dignity and self-respect at a time when our leader is threatened with notices from the SOG under the charges of sedition and criminal conspiracy.”

The statement was issued through Pilot’s official WhatsApp group and signed by Congress leaders Vishvender Singh, Ramesh Meena and Deepender Shekhawat.

Chief minister Ashok Gehlot removed Pilot, Singh and Meena from the cabinet, post-second CLP meeting. Singh and Meena were cabinet ministers and Shekhawat is a former speaker. Singh was the tourism minister and Meena held the food and civil supplies portfolio.

“This is unprecedented in Indian democracy and the Congress party, for which we have toiled with sweat and blood. Under the leadership of Sachin Pilot we have made every effort in the past 6 years to strengthen the party and bring it to power in Rajasthan at a time when it had been reduced to an insignificant number in the state assembly,” Pilot’s supports said.

“Public humiliation of our leader Pilot is something that is totally unacceptable to us, and those responsible for meeting out this treatment need to be made accountable,” the statement said. “We are seeking to restore our self-respect and are not clamouring for any posts and positions contrary to false reports in the media. We have been senior members of the party for many years and have held many positions within the party and government and are not lured by inducements.”
