Tonk MLA and former Deputy Chief Minister of Rajasthan Sachin Pilot is on a tour of Karnataka for a day on Wednesday. During this, he said about the politics of Rajasthan and possible cabinet expansion that the party high command decides who will become what.
The pilot said that the party and the government need to work together. We have to make sure we work hard to come back again.
Regarding the proposed cabinet expansion in Rajasthan, the senior Congress leader said that I am constantly in touch with senior leaders. We need to win every election.
We are working towards achieving the target. He also said who will become what, and the party high command in Delhi takes this decision. On joining Prashant Kishor (PK) in Congress, he said he would not like to comment on it.
He criticized the economic reform policy of the Center and said that today we have seen poverty increasing; we have seen rich becoming more affluent. Every sector of the economy is falling apart.
Criticizing the economic reforms, Sachin Pilot said that the All India Congress Committee (AICC) has already given a strong statement against the Government of India. It’s about the monetization plan.
It is privatization vs. disinvestment vs. monetization. Are these our assets? We have roads, railways,s, etc. These are our main strategic assets built up over the past few decades. Assets are making money.
The pilot said that Prime Minister (Narendra Modi) had announced 100 lakh crore for infrastructure in the last three years. India stands today because of the decisions taken by Narasimha Rao as Prime Minister in 1991.
Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman launched the National Monetization Pipeline (NMP) program last month. During this, he had said that the ownership of these properties would remain with the government, only to earn them will be given to other parties. After a few years, these private companies will return it to the government.
On this decision of the Finance Minister, Sachin Pilot said that the Finance Minister says that the thrower will be with the Government of India. Still, when it is with only a few players, it creates a monopoly.
