Rajasthan Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) chief Sachin Pilot on Wednesday attacked BJP government for wasting public money on anniversary celebrations of the Raje government despite ‘lack of any achievements’.
While addressing workers’ conference in Ramganjmandi during his Kota division visit, Pilot said the government celebrated completion of its one year in office, for which BJP ferried a large number of party workers to Jaipur, whereas common man was absent from the celebrations.
Such celebrations would have been justified if common people would have attended it, he said.
“The state government appreciated itself for the ceremony, whereas, in reality, it has no achievements in its account in the one-year term,” said Pilot. He alleged chief minister Vasundhara Raje-led state government has failed on all fronts.
Pilot said Congress will emerge with better results in the panchayat polls in the state. “People will not get mislead by the false assurances of BJP,” he said.
The state Congress chief said the party will oppose the mining policy of the state government ‘since there is no reservation for any categories in it, including disabled persons and other categories’.
“The new mining policy is based on ‘first come first serve’ which is inappropriate, as only BJP leaders and its ministers would arrive first for the mining,” he alleged.
Divisions surface in Congress
Divisions within Ramganjmandi unit of Congress surfaced during workers’ conference in presence of Pilot on Thursday. Former Congress candidate from Ramganjmandi in 2013 assembly polls Babubal Meghwal accused former minister Ramgopal Bairwa of neglecting his supporters.
He also expressed dissatisfaction over recent PCC formation. Supporters of Meghwal and Bairwa raised slogans against each other but somehow Congress leaders controlled them.
