Jaipur: Congress party has removed Sachin Pilot from the post of Deputy Chief Minister and PCC Chief, announced Congress leader Randeep Singh Surejewala on Tuesday.
“Sachin Pilot, Vishvendra Singh and Ramesh Meena have been removed from the posts of Deputy Chief Minister and Ministerial posts respectively. Sachin Pilot has also been removed as the Rajasthan PCC Chief,” said Surjewala.
“Sachin Pilot, few Congress Minister and MLAs got involved in the conspiracy to topple the Congress government by getting entangled within the trap of BJP,” he added.
The decision to sack him was taken after the Congress legislative meet on Tuesday, where Sachin Pilot skipped the meeting despite receiving an ultimatum from the Congress high command.
Rajasthan’s education minister Govind Singh Dotasra was on Tuesday named as the new chief of the Congress’ Rajasthan unit in place of Sachin Pilot.
