Rajasthan has been in headlines for several months for a prominent reason. It is a tussle among the members of the ruling party (Congress).
The rift is so evident that it has not remained hidden. The opponent party has complained that there is a lack of understanding among the party members. In the article, there is a discussion to highlight the political rift in Rajasthan.
Why is the political tussle?
A few months back, Rajasthan witnessed the Assembly results that provided Congress a majority in the state. Two main leaders of Congress, Ashok Gehlot, and Sachin Pilot had been claiming the post for the CM’s chair. But Gehlot became the Chief Minister of Rajasthan by the party’s high command. Sachin Pilot is the deputy CM. The relationship between the two influential personalities started to worsen gradually since then. The hostility has come out in public on several events. As time passes, the bitterness intensifies. The infighting has worsened after Lok Shaba Elections due to several important decisions.
The internal rift between the leaders has put the party in a tight situation. Afterward, there are several disagreements between them about different matters such as candidates to give cabinet berths. The skirmish between the leaders has worsened after Gehlot blamed Pilot for various issues. The deputy CM has also criticized the law and order situation in the state.
Such allegations and cross-allegations are corroding the harmony in Congress. Not only Pilot, but another congress MLA Johri Lal Meena also condemned the present situation of Rajasthan. He blamed the CM of being failed to control the present situation.
Opponent BJP has begun to take potshots at the continuing internal conflict in the higher echelons of the incumbent party. The State president of BJP has claimed that the people in the state have been the worst sufferers.
How do people get affected by political tussle?
The political tussle in Rajasthan has been affecting the party workers. The followers and supporters of both the leaders continue sloganeering to such an extent that has led to the police intervention. There are also clashes among the party followers. It leads to the disruption in different places in Rajasthan. Common men witness such violent situations so they lose their faith in the party. If such a scenario continues, the situations will worsen further.
To conclude, it is time to say that the decision will be crucial for the upcoming days. To amend such situations, the party leaders need to come closer and unanimously try to solve the ongoing internal rift for the betterment of Rajasthan.
