Return and perish or perish are two choices for rebellious Sachin Pilot if he doesn’t manage to poach more MLAs from Fairmont hotel in Jaipur within the coming days. a minimum of ten MLAs inside Ashok Gehlot camp have a soft corner for Sachin Pilot but they will not wish to create an existential political crisis for themselves by biological process at this stage. The coup planned by Sachin Pilot now stands foiled and he himself faces tough political choices if he decides to stay in Congress.
Sources say that Rahul Gandhi, himself, was trying to inducein contact with Sachin Pilot to chart out a reconciliation plan with the young leader. Congress supreme headquartersdoesn’t want to determine Sachin Pilot go but also not want to place itself during a spot to nurture political ambitions which don’t suit the plan of the party. Moreover, whatever strength for electoral fight party possesses still lies with old warhorses like Ashok Gehlot.
The easiest choice for Sachin Pilot is to chart his own course at national level politics and creating a distinct segment for himself. But informed sources say that baba-log brigade in Congress isn’t cut out of the fabricwhich might re-start their journey from scratch despite a large following of Lutyen’s Delhi sympathizers, Page-3 party crowd, arm-chair political experts and opinion-makers.
Then, he’s left with the selection to perish – politically, for the nonce, or come to congress fold and perish. Ashok Gehlot has made it very clear to the leaders that though he’s not criticalthe thought of Pilot remaining within the Congress fold but he doesn’t see any role for Pilot in Rajasthan. Congress leadership would also not want to form an example of surrendering to whims of a Young Turk that has already raised a rebellion but the coup failed.
