Former Chief Minister of the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir and National Conference vice-president Omar Abdullah shared a fleet in which he indicated that he want Sachin Pilot’s coup attempt to fail without naming him.
In his Twitter fleet he said “I’ve never wanted a coup attempt to fail more.”
Omar’s tweet came after the new political crisis has erupted in Rajasthan. CM Ashok Gehlot has alleged the BJP of conspiring to topple his government by indulging in horse-trading, a charge denied by the opposition party. Meanwhile, claiming that the party has support of 109 MLAs, Rajasthan Congress has issued whip to MLAs for CLP meeting today
It is reportedly said that there are some ego clashes going on between Gehlot and Sachin.
The leaders admit that there is “deep distrust” between the two, manifested multiple times in the last one-and-a-half years. Referring to Scindia’s exit in MP, a former Union minister and AICC general secretary went to the extent of saying that “nothing is guaranteed in such situations”.
The tussle between Gehlot and Pilot began much before the Congress came to power in Rajasthan in December 2018. The feud came to the fore during candidate selection for the Assembly elections, too, and escalated when the high command decided to give the experienced Gehlot a third shot at Chief Ministership, with an eye on the Lok Sabha elections around the corner.
