By India Today News Desk: The Congress’s in-charge of Rajasthan, Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa, on Wednesday met with party chief Mallikarjun Kharge, a day after Sachin Pilot observed a fast against his own government demanding action in corruption cases under the previous BJP government in Rajasthan.
Randhawa agreed with the issue raised by Sachin Pilot but objected to the way he raised it. However, Pilot, the former deputy chief minister, had claimed that he wrote two letters on this issue to Gehlot last year but received no reply.

“I will analyse all things and prepare a report as to who is at fault. Action should have been taken in the past but was not done, but this time action will be taken,” Randhawa told news agency ANI, indicating the party high command is likely to initiate action against Pilot.
Another meeting is scheduled to be held at the residence of Congress chief Mallikarjun Kharge on Thursday morning over Pilot’s protest.

Today, Randhawa met with Kharge for about half-an-hour at his 10 Rajaji Marg residence, PTI reported. There was speculation that Pilot might meet Randhawa and other senior leaders, but sources close to Pilot told PTI no meetings were scheduled.
Taking strong objection to the call to undertake a daylong fast by Pilot, Randhawa on Monday evening had said that any such protest against its sitting government would amount to anti-party activity.
The party, however, maintained silence on Tuesday when Sachin Pilot observed the fast.
