"Sachin Pilot should wait patiently for his turn"- Minister Veerappa Moily
On the political crisis in Rajasthan, senior Congress leader and former Union Minister M Veerappa Moily said that the general secretaries in charge of the states have not done their job and at the All India Congress Committee (AICC) level to strengthen the Sonia Gandhi-led organization needs improvement. Former Union Minister Veerappa Moily supported Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and said that rebel leader Sachin Pilot should wait patiently for his turn. Moily said that many youths are encouraged in the Congress party, but they need to be tested. You cannot just ignore the giants.
"Rajasthan crisis can be stopped"- Veerappa Moily
Former Karnataka Chief Minister Veerappa Moily said that many youth of today do not have patience at all. They need to be firm. Sachin Pilot may be eligible for the post of Chief Minister, but he should have waited for his turn. The 42-year-old leader was quickly appointed MP, Union Minister, Deputy Chief Minister and PCC President. Former Union Minister Veerappa Moily said that the AICC General Secretary in-charge of the states is not cautious and does not understand the problems faced by the local party units. Rajasthan crisis can be stopped. They (General Secretary) do not bring to the attention of the central leadership. Immediate corrective action should be taken in Rajasthan.
Congress leader Veerappa Moily said that these days we are not doing such an exercise whether it is in the north-eastern states, or Madhya Pradesh or Karnataka. There is also a lack of vigilance from the High Command at times. As a result, when everything is done, only then they become terrorized, this should not happen. Veerappa Moily, who was Congress incharge of Andhra Pradesh, Assam, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Puducherry, said that I used to go to all states. Used to listen to workers' complaint, these days it is not done. Now those people have been given charge of the states, who have no time to go or live there. Nor are they visiting the districts.
Veerappa Moily said that you have to understand the aspirations of the leaders not only at the state level but also at the district level. The Congress has to be strengthened by putting up loyal leaders. BJP just waits for the opportunity. Non-BJP governments target them and they catch these aspiring youths (from other parties) who are decent.
