Sachin Pilot meets Rajasthan Congress co-in-charge in Haridwar
Amid political uproar in Rajasthan, Congress leader and former Union minister Sachin Pilot took time to express condolences to Haridwar-based Uttarakhand Congress MLA Qazi Nizamuddin on the demise of his mother. Nizamuddin is also co-in-charge of the Rajasthan Congress.
“I have come for a personal visit to express condolence to Qazi ji on his mother’s recent demise. We have good family relations with the Nizamuddin family and my father also used to meet Qazi Mohammad Mohiuddin, Qazi ji’s father,” Pilot said.
Qazi Nizamuddin’s mother Sayedda Nafisa Khatun (70) passed away on June 4 in Roorkee after suffering heart-related ailments.
Both the leaders held close door meeting at Nizamuddin’s Manglaur-based residence and both refrained from speaking to media on political affairs in particular dissidence in Rajasthan state and party politics.
In capacity of being Rajasthan Congress co-in-charge, the three-time legislator Qazi Nizamuddin is said to have a good rapport with Sachin Pilot. Qazi’s family holds good political ground in Uttarakhand and western Uttar Pradesh. His father Mohiuddin was a five-time legislator in Uttar Pradesh Legislative Assembly.
Shortly after the meeting, Nizamuddin took to Twitter and shared pictures of his meeting with Pilot and thanked him for his visit.
“Senior Congress leader Shri @SachinPilot ji came to my residence today. He paid tribute to my Ammi ji and encouraged us to rise from grief. We are grateful to him for giving us courage in this hour of grief,” he tweeted.
“I pray to God to give peace to the departed soul. My condolences are with you and your family in this sad time,” Pilot posted in response.
