New Delhi: With another political drama stewing in Rajasthan between Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot, Twitter was flooded with people taking sides in the feud.

To begin with, the Congress is in a tizzy, yet again.

Veteran leader Kapil Sibal is extremely worried—and so should be the party.

P. Chidambaram’s son Karti takes a fairly roundabout way to make his point about the crisis in Rajasthan — with help from Google.

Sacked spokesperson Sanjay Jha made it clear whose side he’s on.

We are deeply grateful to our readers & viewers for their time, trust and subscriptions.

Quality journalism is expensive and needs readers to pay for it. Your support will define our work and ThePrint’s future.


Wordsmith Shashi Tharoor elevated the issue to loftier heights…

Senior party spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala knows the BJP playbook by heart and predicts what will follow the IT raids conducted today on people close to Gehlot.

As for the BJP, it’s not saying much although newly-minted leader Jyotiraditya Scindia expresses sympathies for his former Congress colleague. Hmmm.

Meanwhile, economist Kaushik Basu has an epic theory on what will happen if people from the Congress keep crossing over to the BJP. That’s one way of looking at it.

Moving on to West Bengal, both Sambit Patra and Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga were amongst many BJP leaders outraged by the death of BJP MLA Debendra Nath Ray, found hanging outside a shop in Kolkata.

Bagga had some choice words for West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee.

And why is BJP’s National General Secretary Kailash Vijaywargiya publicising Ray’s body?

Gujarat Police Constable Sunita Yadav was transferred from her position after she detained a deputy minister’s son for violating lockdown rules. Here, the Indian Police Federation reminds the police supervisors of their duty.

Actor Juhi Chawla makes a fairly accurate ‘slip’.

And finally, cricket legend Sir Vivian Richards cannot ‘keep calm’ about the fantastic four-wicket test match win by West Indies against England on Sunday.
