Sachin Pilot in Tonk

JAIPUR: Following the recent reconciliation meeting at Congress President Mallikarjan Kharge’s residence, Sachin Pilot has reiterated that there will be no compromise on the three demands presented on May 15. The former deputy chief minister has once again reminded the government of the ultimatum, emphasizing the importance of addressing the issues raised.

During a visit to rural areas in Tonk, Pilot underlined that the promises made to the youth on public platforms were not mere rhetoric. He emphasized the necessity of fulfilling commitments and stressed that there can be no compromise on any of the three demands.

Addressing the matter, Pilot stated, “I discussed these matters in Delhi two days ago, and everyone is well aware of them. I want to emphasize that action must be taken, particularly against corruption. There has been rampant looting during the BJP rule, and it is imperative to hold those responsible accountable. Justice for the youth is paramount, and compromising on that front is not an option. I hope the government will promptly act upon what I expressed on May 15. This is widely known, and I await action. We had discussions just two days ago, and it is the responsibility of the state government to take action on these issues.”

Pilot continued, stating, “The assurances made publicly to my young colleagues, the commitments undertaken—these are not mere words. They are not baseless claims. If there are any inaccuracies, they should be pointed out. The Congress party has always stood against corruption and has been supportive of the youth. It is important to ensure justice for the youth and investigate the corruption that occurred during the BJP government’s tenure. There will be no compromise in this regard.”

Drawing attention to the Congress party’s stance, Pilot added, “The Congress party, under the leadership of Rahul Gandhi, has repeatedly reiterated its zero-tolerance policy towards corruption. We cannot, under any circumstances, accept corruption. The Congress party has consistently supported the youth and provided opportunities for them to engage in politics.”

Expressing concern over potential injustices faced by the youth, Pilot stated, “If any wrongdoing occurs against the youth, if they face injustice, I understand their plight. The party has always been against such practices. I cannot compromise on these two issues: corruption and the future of our youth.”

Highlighting recent conversations, Pilot remarked, “Just two days ago, I had a discussion in Delhi. The party is well aware of the demands I made to the Congress leadership, including the president. On the 15th, during my speech, both Ashok Gehlot and I raised the corruption cases that surfaced during Vasundhara Raje’s tenure under BJP rule. These issues have been brought to public attention multiple times by various Congress leaders. It is crucial that they are effectively investigated.”

Regarding the Rajasthan Public Service Commission (RPSC), Pilot emphasized the need for urgent action, stating, “Numerous positions remain vacant within the RPSC, and some appointments could be improved. Therefore, radical changes must be implemented. The functioning of the RPSC requires a significant overhaul. We have countless children who face tremendous challenges while migrating to cities, struggling to find accommodations. They spend their hard-earned money and dedicate years of effort. If they are deceived, it is essential to financially support these individuals. This issue was raised, and I believe the government will take appropriate action.”
