The Congress government in Rajasthan is on the brink just three months after the party lost Madhya Pradesh. Rebel leader Sachin Pilot was sacked as Deputy Chief Minister and removed as state party chief after he skipped a second meeting of MLAs today despite the leadership reaching out to him several times. Two ministers who have joined him in his revolt were also dropped. Sachin Pilot was “ensnared” by the BJP to bring down the Ashok Gehlot government, the Congress said, announcing his expulsion from the cabinet. Sachin Pilot, whose demands reportedly included Chief Ministership, is set to be the next high-profile exit from the Congress after Jyotiraditya Scindia, following an almost identical script.
