Sachin Pilot, the youthful and dynamic chief from Rajasthan who rebelled towards the Congress occasion has nullified any odds of signing up for BJP, and claimed, “For five a long time, I have labored tricky battling the BJP. As element of Rajasthan Congress, I worked to oust the BJP and deliver in a Congress federal government. If another person is producing political overtures, it just cannot be manufactured out that I will sign up for them.” He further claimed,
There is no issue of becoming a member of the BJP”
Pilot is younger, educated and really hard-performing and has the guidance of two dominant caste teams, hence, a CM figure in every perception. But, if he joins BJP, the persons of the condition would just take him like just yet another energy-hungry opportunist. Hence, signing up for BJP could be politically suicidal for him in the very long-expression.
However, if he splits Congress and floats a new outfit with the assist of other youthful leaders who truly feel suffocate in the grand previous get together like- Milind Deora, Jitin Prasada, Priya Dutt, Sanjay Nirumpam, it would be a substantial setback for the Nehru Gandhi loved ones.
Sachin Pilot is not just a collegues but my pal. No one can just take away the fact that all these years he has worked with commitment for the get together. Sincerely hope the problem can nevertheless be salvaged. Unhappy it has appear to this…

Right after Pilot remaining the celebration, Prasada subtly supported his determination and tweeted, “Sachin Pilot is not just a collegues but my good friend. No one particular can acquire away the simple fact that all these decades he has labored with determination for the party. Sincerely hope the condition can nonetheless be salvaged. Unhappy it has occur to this.”
An additional friend leaves the social gathering both equally sachin and jyotirajya were being colleagues & good buddies regretably our social gathering has missing 2 stalwart youthful leaders with fantastic opportunity. I will not think getting ambitious is incorrect. They have worked hard as a result of the most complicated occasions.

Priya Dutt, prominent Congress chief from Maharashtra, also confirmed her guidance to the bash and wrote, “Another buddy leaves the party both equally sachin and jyotirajya were colleagues & good friends regretably our party has missing 2 stalwart young leaders with good probable. I really do not believe staying bold is improper. They have worked tricky through the most tough situations.”
Milind Deora, a distinguished politician from Maharashtra, has consistently ridiculed Congress’s central leadership and maintain of the aged guards on the Congress social gathering. Opposite to Congress’ extreme still left political positions, he has taken a more centrist stance and supported many of the Modi government’s conclusions.
Tharoor, who argued for reform in Congress celebration to align it as centrist instead of still left, could also leave the outdated guards if Pilot floats a new outfit. “I passionately consider that our country wants a genuinely liberal get together headed by centrist experts committed to inclusive politics and respectful of India’s pluralism. All who believe in the founding values of the Republic must work to strengthen @INCIndia not undermine it,” tweeted Tharoor on July 12 following Pilot remaining and has embedded it as pinned tweet now.
Sanjay Jha, a different specialist and company government who was sidelined by the social gathering for criticizing central leadership led by the family members, tweeted, “For 5 years Sachin Pilot gave his blood, tears, toil and sweat for the Congress social gathering between 2013-18. The Congress came again from a wretched 21 seats to 100. We just gave him a overall performance reward. We are so meritocratic. We are so clear.”
Bhupinder Singh Hooda’s spouse and children in Haryana could also join the new outfit as they are not happy with Congress’s central leadership.
If Sachin Pilot floats a new occasion, he could conveniently rout the grand aged party in Rajasthan, and if other leaders from across the place be part of, the old Congress could vanish completely in subsequent couple decades.
To get an plan of how he could sway the election in Rajasthan, appear at what Jaganmohan Reddy did in Andhra Pradesh. Soon after Congress superior command refused to make him CM experience, Reddy fashioned a celebration in the identify of his father- YSR Congress Social gathering- who was a well-liked leader and won 2019 assembly election with a humongous the vast majority, routing Congress help foundation.
Sachin Pilot’s father- Rajesh Pilot- was also a well known chief and he could undertake the playbook by Jaganmohan to defeat Congress as nicely as BJP. Even if his party would not get the vast majority numbers, BJP would be extra than prepared to supply him exterior support to maintain Congress out of electric power.
So much, Congress was routed by regional functions in non-Hindi speaking states one by and these functions were floated by former Congress leaders drifted away.
Mamata Banerjee in West Bengal, Neiphu Rio in Nagaland, Jaganmohan Reddy in Andhra Pradesh, Sharad Pawar in Maharashtra, PA Sangma in Meghalaya are handful of leaders who concluded Congress altogether in their state or designed it third or even more major gamers.
This time, if Sachin floats a new celebration with leaders like Hooda, Prasada, and Chautala- it would be first legitimate endeavor to finish Congress in Hindi heartland. If the new bash succeeds, the old bash is likely to terminate just like Congress (corporation) was eliminated by Indira Gandhi’s Congress (I) in the late 1960s.
