Sachin Pilot slams CM Ashok Gehlot over Kota infants' deaths, says can't escape responsibility

After the Opposition BJP, now Rajasthan Congress president and state's Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot too has come out and slammed Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot for the deaths of over 100 infants in Kota's JK Lon Hospital.

"One can't escape responsibility by weaving a web of numbers. We shouldn't be talking about what happened in the past. We should rather be fixing responsibility of what is happening at present," Sachin Pilot said on Saturday.

This is the first time a Congress leader, that too the state president and deputy CM, has criticised the Congress's own government in Rajasthan.

"Itne sare bacchon ki maut hui hai. Jimmedari tay karni hogi. Vasundra ji ne kuch galat kiya to janta ne unhain hara diya. Magar ab toh hamari jimmedari banti hai (So many children have died. We have to fix responsibility. People voted out Vasundra Raje for her wrongs. But now it's our responsibility)," Sachin Pilot said.
