Senior BJP leader Kirodi Lal Meena on Tuesday asked Rajasthan state Congress chief Sachin Pilot to clear his stand on reservation to Gujjars and Meenas in the state. Rajasthan will go to polls on December 7.
Meena, who is a five-time legislator and seen as the patriarch of the Meena community, said Sachin Pilot "was already a chief minister for the Congress" so he should clear his stand on reservation to Gujjars and Meenas.
"His father Rajesh Pilot had got ST category status to Gujjars so the state Congress chief should clear his stand," Meena told reporters.
"Though, people might ruin the Congress dream of coming into power, Sachin Pilot, who is apparently the party's CM candidate, should clarify on the reservation issue," Meena said.
Gujjars are not covered under ST category in Rajasthan whereas Meenas get the benefits under the category.
