JAIPUR: Lashing out again at dissident Congress leader Sachin Pilot, Rajasthan chief minister Ashok Gehlot on Tuesday said those betraying the party will not be able to face the public.
Gehlot also reiterated that a conspiracy to topple his government was being hatched but said he was confident that they will complete their tenure.
The state government is fighting with coronavirus crisis and at the same time, a leader who was a state Congress president and a few other MLAs in collusion with the BJP were “hatching a conspiracy” to topple it, he alleged without taking the name of Pilot or any other party leader.
"This is intolerable and condemnable. Those betraying the party will not be able to show their faces in public," Gehlot said addressing a Congress Legislature Party meeting at a hotel here.
According to a statement issued by Congress chief whip Mahesh Joshi, Gehlot said efforts are being made to “weaken democracy” in the country but Congress legislators are fighting firmly to save it.
The fight will continue till the victory of truth, he claimed, adding that his government is strong and stable and will continue to serve the people of the state for five years.
The truth will prevail and the state government will emerge victorious in all circumstances, he said.
The CM also said those playing hide-and-seek can never be with the truth. Gehlot also thanked the Bhartiya Tribal Party (BTP) and Rashtriya Lok Dal legislator for supporting the Congress.
The statement said the MLAs in the meeting expressed faith in the leadership of Gehlot, saying they will “together win the battle of truth”.
