In Rajasthan, three men were found climbing up in a tank to showcase their support for the Congress leader Sachin Pilot. They demand him to be declared as the Chief Minister of Rajasthan by the winning Congress.
They were found screaming, “Sachin Pilot Zindabad!” from the top of a tank in a video shot by a passerby on his phone.
Rajasthan people have chosen Congress over BJP to lead the state, but there had been a war to decide, who would be the CM of the state. The two-time CM Ashok Gehlot and Sachin Pilot, who is very popular among youth, have been top recommended for the post of the state Chief Minister.
Today morning, a group of protestors from Gujjar community that supports Mr. Pilot has blocked the highway at Alwar. Since yesterday, there has been a sporadic protest in the state, as the Congress won over BJP in the Assembly Elections in Rajasthan.
With a formal announcement made by the party on Friday, Ashok Gehlot was declared as the new Chief Minister for the state and Sachin Pilot will be Deputy CM.
Congress tweeted, “Ashok Gehlot – a stalwart of the Congress party has been appointed CM of Rajasthan. We wish him the best as he takes on this new appointment with vigor, sincerity and a commitment to our democratic values.”
