Political News, State, (New Delhi), February 5:-Rajasthan Congress chief Sachin Pilot on Sunday said that the recent Congress victory in key bypolls in the state has busted the “myth” of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) being an election-winning machine and sent out a message that its “jumlebaazi” (rhetoric) will not work.
Pilot, who campaigned intensely and worked at the grass- roots level for the two Lok Sabha constituencies and one Assembly seat, said the outcome would also have a bearing on the upcoming polls in other states, including Karnataka.
“The myth that the BJP is an election-winning machine and cannot be defeated at the hustings at the booth level, that myth has been put to rest now,” he said. “The whole pracharak, vistarak and the booth management … take pride in saying that they are the best apparently… (It) has now been proven that we can defeat them if the Congress party workers work with zeal,” Pilot said.
Pilot claimed the tide was turning against the BJP and hailed Congress president Rahul Gandhi for taking on the BJP aggressively. “Every statement Rahul Gandhi makes at least 15 ministers start challenging that, which shows the nervousness in the BJP camp at the way Gandhi is attacking and aggressively campaigning,” he said.
