Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said the fight, which was to save democracy, will continue. This statement comes after former deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot after meeting with Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Ganmdhi Vadra reached a amicable solution to the month- long crisis.
Further, on being assured by the party that the issues raised by him and his camp of MLAs will be resolved, Sachin Pilot returned to Congress and said he had never hankered for any post and was only raising ideological issues.
“All our MLAs stayed together for such a long time. This is a victory of the people of Rajasthan. It is our duty to serve the people of the state,” said Gehlot, who had struggled to keep intact the numbers of his government in the state, with his MLAs huddled in hotels in Jaipur, and later Jaisalmer.
Gehlot said : “The fight is to save democracy and it will continue. All our MLAs stayed together for such a long time. This is a victory of the people of Rajasthan. It is our duty to serve the people of the state. It’s natural for MLAs to be upset. The manner in which this episode occurred and the way in which they stayed for a month, it was natural. I’ve explained to them that sometimes we need to be tolerant if we have to serve the nation, state, people and save democracy.”
Meanwhile, reacting to the Pilot and rebels return, Gehlot said , it is his duty as the chief minister to address the grievances of his MLAs and party members and will listen to the problems raised by those who are miffed with him.
