WATCH – Congress leader Sachin Pilot sits on day-long ‘anshan’ in Jaipur against his own party
Despite stern warning from party leader not to against its own party in public, former Rajasthan deputy chief minister Sachin Pilot sat on a daylong fast at the Shaheed Smarak in Jaipur on Tuesday.
The Congress leader, who is demanding action in cases of alleged corruption during previous BJP government in the state led by Vasundhara Raje, reached the Shaheed Smarak Sthal and sat for the day-long protest, with Mahatma Gandhi as his backdrop.
He was joined by his supporters, who sat surrounding him. Experts in the business believe that Pilot’s move might add more trouble for party high command, which is already facing issues in Rajasthan’s Congress cadre.

Pilot is alleging that the Ashok Gehlot-led government failed to investigate cases of alleged corruption during the BJP rule in Rajasthan and said his day-long fast is to press for action.
Earlier on Sunday, All India Congress Committee in-charge of the state Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa on Monday night issued a stern warning to Piliot and said any protest against its government will be seen as anti-party activity and goes against the party’s interest.
