Sachin Pilot says only the Congress-NCP can run an inclusive government in Maharashtra. In the city to campaign for Congress candidate Bhausaheb Bhoir,the Union Minister of State for Communications and IT said: “Our party does not seek votes on the basis of language and religion like other parties do. We can work for welfare of people regardless of caste and religion. Only a party with an inclusive philosophy like the Congress can work for the development of the state.”

Addressing a rally in Thergaon on Saturday evening,he asked voters to back young candidate Bhoir.

“Many parties talk about the need to bring youths into politics. But it was the Congress party that first gave young people a chance to enter politics and work on nation building,” said Pilot.

He added that Rahul Gandhi has given a boost to the confidence of the youth in India. Under his leadership,any one with the capability and desire to work for the welfare of people would definitely be given a chance,he said.

“BJP and Shiv Sena are busy with intra-party disputes. BJP is still debating what Hindutva means. It kept on harping on building the Ram Mandir for many years. But when it came to power,it didn’t build it because had it happened there wouldn’t have left any issue to talk about,” said Pilot.

Referring to the battle between Shiv Sena executive president Uddhav Thackeray and Maharashtra Navnirman Sena chief Raj Thackeray,he said,“Instead of working on development policies brothers are fighting on who is the greater Maratha; uncle and nephew are fighting over the same issue.”

“One must see the philosophy and the intention of the party before voting. It was the Congress-led UPA during whose tenure acts like Right to Information Act and National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (NREGA) were implemented. Under NREGA,a jobless person can demand employment from the collector. If the government fails to provide him employment within 15 days,the government would have to pay him allowance,” said Pilot.


He added it was the Congress-led UPA that waived loans of farmers to the tune of Rs 72,000 crore.
