It's raining resignations in Raj Cong after Pilot's sacking

Jaipur, Jul 14 (IANS): Soon after Sachin Pilot was removed as Deputy Chief Minister and Pradesh Congress Committee president, Rajasthan NSUI president Abhimanyu Poonia on Tuesday also tendered his resignation.

Poonia said that around 400-500 members holding certain posts in the Youth Congress, National Students' Union of India (NSUI) and Seva Dal have resigned to protest against the development.

Meanwhile, over 50 Congressmen have also resigned in Tonk, Pilot's home constituency in Rajasthan to protest against his sacking.

District Congress President of Pali Chunnilal Chadwas has also resigned from the party.

Meanwhile, Pilot in a tweet said: "My heartfelt thanks and gratitude to all those who have come out in my support today. Ram Ram sa."

Retweeting the post, Poonia said: "We will defeat slavery and will make the struggle win (hamein gulaami ko harana hai aur sangharsh ko jitana hai) #RajasthanKaPilot."

He said that he resigned from the post in support of Sachin Pilot. "Our conscience is alive, so is our self-respect. #SachinPilotkesaath," he said on Twitter.

The Congress on Tuesday sacked Sachin Pilot from the posts of Rajasthan's deputy chief minister as well as the party's state unit chief and also cracked the whip on the rebel party leader, removing his loyalists Vishvendra Singh and Ramesh Meena from the state cabinet.

Meanwhile, protests were staged in many pockets of Gujjar dominated areas as Pilot is a favourite of the community.

High alert has been sounded in Gujjar-dominated areas in Dausa, Ajmer, Tonk, Sawai Madhopur and Bharatpur to avert any untoward incident.

    Sad to see Congress Party is getting decimated by none other than itself. It's surprising that there is no one else in the party capable of leading it other than the one family. Congress Amma is solely responsible for the destruction of the age old party of common man of India.

    Useless and In competent Queen, Princess and Prince, are responsible. They are thinking that Indira Gandhi Poster will bring back them power. They totally forgot, majority voters from Indira's era either passed away and remaining people disappointed with family management.

    This so called Queen ( who loved only Power NOT nation ) targeted Andra Pradesh Young Congress leader Jagmohan Reddy, Since he was NOT ready to become slave. Result - he was brutally harassed , Bank a/c frozen and Jailed without any proven charges. But time and KHUDRAT has given its answer. Jagan became CM with his own capacity. Secondly present Punjab CM never allowed Prince to come to Punjab for election campaign. Last month Scindia Episode and Now Pilot episode.

    Its sad day for India. Without strong opposition, democracy will not survive and its lead to dictatorship and Mother and son totally responsible for this.

    Sad to see India going to an era of Autocracy, without any opposition.
    Only a relieving fact is the hope that these youngsters when in BJP will raise their voice against bad practices of BJP if any. And also it gives a second set of leaders for the party to march ahead.
    I am really sad for Congress, not that I am a fan of Congress, but it feels sad to see even your enemies getting dissolve slowly!

    Nothing to loose sleep over about. Congress has to get rid of the Scabies.
    Once all the infections have jumped the fence, sickness will start from fool of Kamal.
    Meanwhile Covid survivors and students who suffered to survive will make
    Up their mind.
    In 2025 Chowkidar, Dubey, Congress and Galwan ,Delhi, Goli will be fresh 🥊 punch points. Pakistan will be irrelevant. Congress . ?nevermind., then Who?
    Who will rule out Nepal Ram?
    Till then save your savings and try to float. Jumla will fill your potli.
    Happy that DK Congress Birserr are silent.

    Talented people are there in every party. He should start his own regional party, instead of being yet another slave to the 2 gujjus in bhakatha Janatha party. The 2 cute boys changu and mangu worshipped by bhakathas, will ensure gujju power like 1000 year hitler's reich (atleast on paper).

    Already deputy CM and state congress President and in his early 40's ? He was treated like a King in Congress Now he will be treated like a Slave by BJP, just like Scindia. This smart man fell for the BJP's PM Cares fund trap.

    The so-called high command is totally at fault for not being able to retain Sachin Pilot. Sachin, along with Jyotiradhya Scindia are very talented and qualified young men who could have shouldered the responsibilities of reviving the sinking Congress, The so called high command should never have allowed things to come to pass and all differences should have been nipped in the bud.

    Alas, this sleeping high command is only interested in the Gandhi family and the interest of the nation is never at heart. Instead of sacking Sachin Pilot, Sonia Gandhi should have been sacked and an efficient and able person should have taken her place. The only option now left is for the youngsters to resign en masse and form a new party. The useless old Congresswalas can remain in the party and lick Sonia's boots. I am afraid, the BJP's dream of making India Congresss mukt is coming true. That will indeed be a very sad day for the democracy.

    No, its one family calling the shots & Rahul Gandhi & Sonia Gandhi's incompetency and poor leadership is the cause. No point in blaming others when its own party member, a young & dynamic leader with leadership quality & charisma rebels.
    Congress has learnt nothing from 2019 Lok Sabha defeat. God save the party & its good leaders & its grass root workers.
