Jaipur, Nov 21: New ministers will be sworn in today. The step taken by the party & leadership after discussions is sending a positive message across the state. We had raised this issue time & again. I’m happy that party, high command & state government took a cognisance of it. Four Dalit Ministers are being included in the new cabinet, said Congress leader and Deputy Chief Minister of Rajasthan Sachin Pilot.
It’s a message that AICC, state government & party wants representation for Dalits, backward & poor. For a long time, there was no Dalit representation in our government, it’s now been made up for & they’ve been included in good numbers, he added.
Representation of tribals has also been included. I think it was a necessary step that has been taken forward by Congress and the state government, said Pilot.
Congress is working under leadership of Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi & Priyanka Gandhi. Party workers will have to work together to bring forth misdeeds of BJP before people. There are no factions in party. The decisions (of cabinet reshuffle) have been taken together, he said.
I had met party president Sonia Gandhi in Delhi, we discussed a lot of issues. I carried out all responsibilities given to me by the party in last 20 years, with dedication. In the time to come, I will work wherever the party sends me, Sachin Pilot said replying a question on his future role in the party.
