Hyderabad: Senior Congress leader and Rajasthan MLA Sachin Pilot expressed optimism about the Congress party coming to power in the coming Telangana assembly elections scheduled for November 30.
Addressing the media at Gandhi Bhavan on Monday, Pilot noted a positive response from the people and anticipated a strong reaction to the visits of Rahul Gandhi, Mallikarjuna Kharge, and Priyanka Gandhi.
He remarked that the aspirations of the people in Telangana had not been fulfilled since the formation of the state, citing increased unemployment as a significant concern.
Pilot emphasized the need for a change in government, claiming that the BRS government had failed to deliver on its promises, lacking credibility and failing to address issues such as job creation and unemployment benefits. Drawing parallels with the recent Karnataka elections, he predicted a similar outcome in Telangana and urged voters to support the Congress for a positive change.
Stressing the tradition of changing the government in Rajasthan every five years, Pilot expressed confidence in the Congress forming the government again in the state, breaking the established pattern.
He highlighted the perceived lack of support from the central government to Rajasthan and suggested that people voted against the BJP in response.
Sachin Pilot also revealed that the high command would decide the chief ministerial candidate for Rajasthan.
