Rajasthan Deputy Chief Minister and State Congress Committee President Sachin Pilot said on Thursday that senior party leader Rahul Gandhi should now take the responsibility of party president. On the demand for Rahul Gandhi to be made the Congress president again, he said, "The state Congress Committee has passed a resolution regarding this. We all demand that Rahul Gandhi take up the responsibility again. "
Targeting the Modi government at the Center over the deadlock with China, Pilot said, "There is no explanation from the Center on the China matter yet." The country wants to know why our 20 soldiers were martyred in Galvan Valley. "
He further said that the State Congress Committee will organize a 'Salute Day to the Martyrs' at the district and block levels across the state on Friday to pay tribute to the brave soldiers of the martyred country in the Galwan Valley of Ladakh. He said that under this, Congress workers will pay tribute to the martyrs from 11 am to 12 noon and sit at the martyr memorial in their respective areas or the statue of Mahatma Gandhi or related to freedom fighters.
On rising prices of petrol and diesel, Pilot said, "We are already suffering from economic slowdown due to Coronavirus infection. When the price of crude oil is decreasing all over the world, the central government is just breaking the backbones of the people by increasing the price. On June 29, the Congress will submit a memorandum to the President about this.
On the incident of attempted firing on Congress MLA Bharosi Lal from Hindaun, Pilot said that he had spoken to the MLA yesterday and the police had arrested the accused. He said that such an incident with any public representative is a matter of concern.
