Let us tell you, on Monday, two big Congress leaders rebelled and filed independent nominations on Tonk assembly seat.

After former Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot and two senior Congress leaders contesting as independents on the Tonk Assembly seat, which is considered a Congress stronghold, Pilot’s political ground seems to be slipping.
The resentment of a section of Congress in Rajasthan has now come out openly. On the other hand, former Congress official Ashok Bairwa from SC category, which is considered the vote bank of Congress, has filed nomination after taking ticket from BSP. Due to which SC vote bank also seems to be slipping from the hands of Congress.
The political battle has become interesting with the filing of nomination of local leader and former MLA Ajit Singh Mehta from BJP. At present, Congress leaders and workers seem disappointed with Sachin Pilot’s sluggish election campaign after filing nomination. On the other hand, South Delhi MP Ramesh Bidhuri, who has become the district election in-charge of BJP, is continuously attacking Sachin Pilot and Congress. In such a situation, Sachin Pilot’s troubles seem to be increasing. Now it remains to be seen how Sachin Pilot will control the damaged Congress in Tonk.

Pilots never speak with the common people on local issues, do not solve their local problems. The receipt said that Tonk has not received the train yet. The people of Tonk need local leaders so that their work can be done. He said that the pilot will be defeated with the love and support of the public.
