Congress sacks Sachin Pilot as dy CM Rajasthan for ‘working at the instance of BJP’

Srinagar: Accusing Sachin Pilot of working at the instance of BJP to topple the state government, the Indian National Congress party has sacked the latter as deputy CM and state party chief, on Wednesday.

According to a report published by a Delhi based newspaper Times of India, the development was not a surprise as efforts by the Congress to get Pilot to withdraw his rebellion failed even as his supporters upped the ante by demanding a change of leadership.

The report said that party’s school education minister and Jat leader Govind Singh Dotasra, seen as “neutral” in state politics, was named the new PCC chief. The decision to remove Pilot came after a meeting of the Congress legislature party (CLP) called for strict action against rebels on Tuesday.
