The most recent incident of Pilot being sidelined was during the state government’s battle with the Covid crisis. Pilot was not part of the core team constituted by the state government to handle it. Gehlot preferred to hold meetings himself, despite Pilot working hard to increase MNREGA work days and taking the sanitisation drive to the rural areas.
Ashok Gehlot sniffed Sachin Pilot’s plots for more than six months and kept AICC on board. He facilitated merger of six BSP MLAs into Congress and ensured outside support of about 18 MLAs, as a buffer against a dozen identified Pilot campers.
The 10-second video was shared late at night on Pilot's official WhatsApp group.In the video, at least 16 MLAs are seen sitting together in a close circle. Pilot is not seen in the video. Six other people can be seen in the video but they could not be identified.
Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal visited Rohmoria in Dibrugarh and announced three schemes totaling Rs.25 crore for finding permanent solution to the problem of erosion caused by River Brahmaputra in the area. Three other schemes were announced by the state government in December last year for a total cost of Rs. 18 crore which are at different stages of implementation.
After 13 Congress MLAs, including Pilot and two ministers, and four Independents stayed away from the meeting, the Congress leadership initiated a carrot-and-stick strategy, asking Pilot to agree to a peace pact while still threatening him and his supporters with disciplinary actions.
During the review meeting held via video conferencing, a presentation was made by the Chairman and Managing Director of New India Assurance providing details about the highlight of the scheme and its status of implementation as on date, an official statement said.

The political crisis in Rajasthan showed no signs of abating with CM Ashok Gehlot holding a show of strength by convening a meeting of party legislators and later placing them in a resort and the camp of his rebellious deputy Sachin Pilot challenging the CM’s claim to numbers while rejecting reports that a compromise was being worked out as being “too little, too late”.
