'Tukde tukde Congress in Rajasthan': BJP's salvo on Ashok Gehlot vs Sachin Pilot

(SAI Bureau) The BJP has latched on to the comments by Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and his Congress colleague Sachin Pilot as differences seem to surface again between the two leaders months ahead of the state elections. A video of Gehlot is being shared widely on social media after Pilot apparently lashed out at his own party's government over the paper leak case. "Are kaha ja raha hai koi adhikari, koi neta isme shamil nahi tha.. to paper ki copy to tijori me hoti hai... yeh to jadugari ho gayi. Koi Jadugar hi hoga. (It's being said that no leader or officer was involved in the paper leak case. But the paper's copy is locked up. Some magician must be involved then)," Pilot said at an event, taking a potshot over the probe in the paper leak case. The "jadugar (magician)" comment was seen as a tacit jibe at Gehlot, who is often referred to by that name as far as the Rajasthan politics is concerned. But after this comment, a video of Gehlot was widely shared where he could be heard saying that "a big corona(virus) entered our party". The clip, according to news agency PTI, is of a pre-budget meeting Gehlot had with the representatives of employees' union on Wednesday.
