Ahead of the Rajasthan Assembly elections scheduled to be held on November 25, prominent Congress leader Sachin Pilot on Friday appealed to people to vote for his party to ensure its victory with full majority which will mark an end to the trend of alternating governments of Congress and the BJP in the state.
Former Deputy Chief Minister of the state, Pilot in a video message which was posted by Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot on X, urged people to elect the Congress government to the power to ‘maintain the progress of the state’.
“Rajasthan Assembly elections are going to be held on November 25. We have conducted several campaigns in the run-up to the polls and the feedback and response from the public suggest that Congress is going to form the government in the state with full majority. The tradition of the alternate governance of BJP and Congress will change this time and once again people will vote for Congress,” Pilot said.
