Sachin Pilot takes charge in Chhattisgarh, advocates separation of politics and religion

Raipur After the recent change in government in Chhattisgarh, the Congress party is strategically preparing for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. The newly appointed State In-Charge, Sachin Pilot, who is also the General Secretary of the All India Congress Committee, arrived in Raipur on Thursday for a two-day visit to the state. Addressing the media at Raipur’s Swami Vivekananda Airport, Pilot shared insights into his first visit to Chhattisgarh, expressing readiness for the impending Lok Sabha elections. He emphasized the party’s commitment to strengthening its organizational structure, deploying workers in the electoral field, and returning with double the strength to present a robust opposition. Pilot assured that the public would unmistakably sense the presence of a formidable opposition. During his media interaction with media, Pilot highlighted that discussions on the ‘Nyay Yatra’ to be undertaken by Rahul Gandhi would take place on Thursday, followed by a meeting of the election committee on Friday. The meeting aims to collect feedback from representatives of all Lok Sabha constituencies, shaping the party’s election strategy. Responding to questions about not visiting Ayodhya, Pilot stressed the importance of keeping politics and religion separate. He affirmed the party’s focus on addressing public issues rather than engaging in politics based on religious grounds. Pilot remarked that refraining from temple visits is a matter of personal faith and underscored the need to concentrate on pressing issues. Addressing internal conflicts within the Congress, he urged party members to overcome differences, emphasizing the necessity of consolidating the Congress and the Indian coalition’s strength for the upcoming 2024 elections. In light of the 2023 election defeat, Pilot asserted that victory and defeat are inherent aspects of politics, emphasizing that no Congress worker is demoralized. He called for activating the Congress flag in every village and town in Chhattisgarh, dismissing the BJP’s claim that “Pilot will crash” and noting his familiarity with the BJP’s propaganda machinery. Pilot criticized the impact of the central government’s ten-year tenure, stating that every section of society has suffered and emphasized his efforts to secure votes by prioritizing emotional issues.
