The political feud between Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot and PCC chief Sachin Pilot is intensifying. Despite several measures by the party's top leadership, the rift between Ashok and Sachin is not dying anytime sooner. Ashok Gehlot's fresh comments have expected to add fuel to the ongoing feud.
Ashok Gehlot claimed that Sachin Pilot is behind his son Vaibhav's defeat from Jodhpur Lok Sabha constituency. Jodhpur is Congress bastion and the party has a strong foothold over the constituency. Ashok Gehlot had won from Jodhpur Lok Sabha for five times. However, in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, Ashok's son Vaibhav Gehlot lost to BJP's Gajendra Singh Shekhawat who is now joined in Narendra Modi's cabinet.
Ashok opined that his son Vaibhav's defeat has pained him. He alleged that PCC chief Sachin had made him believe that his son Vaibhav would win from Jodhpur whereas the reality is different. Ashok's followers opined that his son Vaibhav had lost the seat despite CM putting special concentration on Jodhpur. The followers allege that Sachin had worked against Vaibhav fearing that the latter would become a political threat to him in the future.
Meanwhile, Rahul Gandhi has expressed his sivere dissent against Ashok Gehlot. Rahul is of the opinion that CM Ashok hasn't worked for the party's victory but he has only focused on his son's seat. However, Ashok Gehlot's fresh comments on Sachin have become hot topic. Followers of Ashok Gehlot and Sachin Pilot are blaming one another for the loss.
