New Delhi: Congress leader Sachin Pilot was on Tuesday removed as the deputy chief minister of Rajasthan and from his position as the state unit chief.
The action came after Pilot did not attend the second round of meetings convened by the Congress to discuss the political crisis in the state. A number of senior Congress leaders had reached out to Pilot since Sunday to resolve the faceoff with Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot.
The Congress had warned of action against all those who skipped the meeting.
Pilot is camping at a hotel in Delhi with some legislators who support him in the ongoing tussle.
