AICC general secretary in-charge of Rajasthan, Ajay Maken, who has been entrusted to sort out differences in Rajasthan Congress, has resumed his work in the state. Ajay Maken, who is on his second visit to Rajasthan, went to Ajmer. He met the Congress workers of the Ajmer division.
Leaders from Ajmer, Bhilwara, Tonk and Nagaur also met Maken. Notably, the leader of dissident MLAs Sachin Pilot was elected as an MP from the Ajmer constituency in the Lok Sabha elections of 2009. As of now, he is a member of the Rajasthan Assembly from Tonk, which is a part of the Ajmer division.
Ajmer division meeting hailed crucial
The meeting of Ajay Maken with the Ajmer division Congress workers and leaders is being hailed crucial. It is because there are a large number of supporters from this area who are with Sachin Pilot.
Moreover, four of the 18 Congress dissidents who were part of the rebellion led by Pilot are still with Pilot. The rebels—Rakesh Pareek, Harish Meena, Mukesh Bhakar and Ramniwas Gabaria— are still loyal to Pilot. During the meeting with Maken, they aired their grievances against Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot.
Dotasara, Sharma accompanied Maken
The Rajasthan Pradesh Congress Committee chief Govind Singh Dotasara and the health minister Dr Raghu Sharma accompanied Maken during his Ajmer visit. Dr Sharma is elected from the Keri constituency of Ajmer district and is considered a Gehlot loyalist.
On Thursday, Maken will meet the leaders of the Jaipur division. The Pilot camp this time is using the meeting of Maken to show their strength and the large scale support that Sachin enjoys.
Pilot’s birthday celebration was show of strength
The large-scale celebration of Sachin Pilot’s 43rd birthday on September 7 is being viewed as a show of strength. In almost all the district headquarters, blood donation camps were organised by his supporters. The success of the blood donation camps indicated Pilot’s popularity.
