Sachin Pilot

Lieutenant Sachin Rajesh Pilot is an Indian politician who was the Deputy Chief Minister of Rajasthan and also President of the Rajasthan Pradesh Congress Committee. As a Member of the Congress party, he has represented the Tonk assembly seat in Rajasthan since 2018. Sachin Pilot is best known as the son of the deceased Congress (I) leader, Rajesh Pilot.

Since his childhood, Sachin wanted to follow in the footsteps of his father and wanted to be an Air Force Pilot. However, Sachin was so passionate about flying that he took a private flying license without telling his father. After an MBA from Wharton Business School, he wanted to become a banker. Although his professional education is enough to shed the stereotypical image of a politician, politics comes naturally to him; as he has grown up in that environment.

After he graduated from New Delhi’s St Stephens College, he started working at the Delhi Bureau of BBC. Thereafter, Sachin Pilot went on to work for the General Motors Corporation. While he was studying at Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, he met his love life Sarah Abdullah; the daughter of former Chief Minister of J&K Farooq Abdullah and the sister of former Chief Minister of J&K Omar Abdullah. He co-authored a book titled “Rajesh Pilot: In Spirit Forever” along with his wife Sarah Abdullah, which was published in 2000.

In September 2012, Sachin Pilot became the first Union Minister of India to be commissioned as an officer in the Territorial Army, fulfilling his desire to follow his father’s footsteps to be in the armed forces. After the 2018 Rajasthan Legislative Assembly Elections, Sachin Pilot became the youngest Deputy Chief Minister of Rajasthan. On 12 July 2020, he claimed that he had the support of 30 MLAs and Ashok Gehlot‘s government in Rajasthan was in minority. Following this claim, speculations became rife about joining him the BJP.
