Mere Speech Not Going to Draw Votes This Time, Today India is in Pain: Sachin Pilot
Speaking at the India Today Conclave 2019, he said: "Institutions have been systematically dismantled. That’s a very very big set back to the nation."
Deputy Chief Minister of Rajasthan and currently serving as the president of Rajasthan Pradesh Congress Committee, Sachin Pilot spoke at the India Today Conclave 2019 about the upcoming general elections and on what it will be fought. The following are the few noteworthy quotes from his discussion with journalist Rahul Kanwal:
– We must always remember India’s fight against terrorism; it’s against insurgency; it’s against attacking our soil by covert methods. It’s not against a nation-state as far as the attack on terrorism is concerned. Whether the prime minister is from “A” party or “B” party, it doesn’t matter.
– Institutions have been systematically dismantled. That’s a very, very big set back to the nation.
– Next election will be fought on the farmland of India, in the alleys of streets of countries and people will ask pertinent, relevant question to the BJP.
– It would have been more appropriate if honourable prime minister should have been called for all-party meeting straightaway, he should have addressed the nation, not the BJP workers.
– Mere speech is not going to draw votes this time; it happened five years ago. Today India is in pain.
– When the wind changes panna pramukh, voter list these all go away.
– I have never heard the word mob lynching five years ago.
– When BJP wins, he (Rahul Kanwal) is all praise for BJP when BJP loses even then you praise the BJP.
– BJP is desperate to win the election; it’s not hunger.
– We are working doubly hard after winning the election.
