Jaipur: Sachin Pilot has been removed as Deputy Chief Minister and Rajasthan Pradesh Congress Committee Chief, announced Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala on Tuesday.

Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala today speaking to reporters on Sachin Pilot in Jaipur.

“Sachin Pilot, Vishvendra Singh and Ramesh Meena have been removed from the posts of Deputy Chief Minister and Ministerial posts respectively. Sachin Pilot has also been removed as the Rajasthan Pradesh Congress Committee president,” said Surjewala.

Govind Singh Dotasra has been appointed as the new Pradesh Congress Committee president, he added.

“Sachin Pilot, few Congress Ministers and MLAs got involved in the conspiracy to topple the Congress government by getting entangled within the trap of BJP,” he added.

The decision was taken after a Congress Legislature Party (CLP) meeting at the Fairmont Hotel in Jaipur, Rajasthan earlier today.

The Rajasthan Congress is in turmoil over the past few days. While Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has blamed the BJP for attempting to destabilise the

State government by poaching MLAs, Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot has been camping in Delhi.
A controversy broke out in Rajasthan after Special Operation Group (SOG) sent a notice to Pilot to record his statement in the case registered by SOG in the alleged poaching of Congress MLAs in the State.
