New Delhi, Jul 15, 2020: The political crisis in Rajasthan has come to a boiling point. Sachin Pilot, who has remained silent through the dramatic turn of events since the crisis began five days ago, will finally speak out on Wednesday.
Sachin Pilot will hold a press conference on Wednesday, where he is expected to give his first public response to a slew of allegations levied against him by Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot.
Accused of trying to topple the Congress government in the state, Sachin Pilot was on Tuesday removed from his post of Rajasthan Deputy Chief Minister and state Congress chief.
Two of Sachin Pilot loyalists, who were ministers in the Gehlot cabinet, were also replaced.
The cryptic tweet Sachin Pilot posted after his sacking on Tuesday triggered speculation in political circles about what the future might hold for the young leader who became an MP at the age of 26 in 2003.
Sachin Pilot said, "truth can be rattled, not defeated". He again tweeted thanking "all those who came out in my support".
Even as the Pilot camp leaders have maintained that they do not intend to join the Bharatiya Janata Party, an MLA has indicated that Wednesday could store a few surprises.
Congress MLA Vishvendra Singh, who was sacked from his ministerial berth on Tuesday, said on Twitter: "Today was 20-20. Test match from tomorrow. Now just wait and watch what happens ahead".
