New Delhi: “I am not joining the BJP,” Sachin Pilot said on Wednesday, asserting that he had worked hard to defeat the saffron party and bring the Congress back to power in Rajasthan.

Pilot told PTI that some leaders in Rajasthan were trying to fuel speculation that he is joining the BJP and he would like to categorically state that he was not doing so.

His remarks come a day after the Congress sacked him as Rajasthan’s deputy chief minister and the party’s state unit president.

Two loyalists of Pilot were also dropped from the state Cabinet.

  1. It seems the section of Congress party is hell bent to subjugate genuinely devoted young men and women come what may. Kamal Nath till the end he had to resign is an example. Sonia Gandhi loves loyalists of Rajev Ganhi more than her son Rahul Gandhi, at the cost of new ideas that come from the youth and people do look up to them for leadership. Yesterday Mani Shankar Aiyar the man who was trying to be prophetic calling one a Chaiwala and mocked at him that better he serves tea at Congress convention and raised unnecessary controversy. He was in-charge of Goa when Goa Congress won more seats than BJP and he was so busy with what even the newly elected Goa Congress MLAs could not contact him while the BJP made its way to power. Should BJP be blamed and such men be the honorable. He was expelled from congress party when Rahul Gandhi was the Chief of Congress. And from behind the curtain someone whom everyone knows pulled the string and Mani was right on his place. He was speaking on channel India Today and he was talking of Sachin that for him it is time to honor him or dishonor him etc. It was another man pawan Khera a congress spokesperson who has little or no responsibility except that he has to stick to his brief. All such people were throwing sermons at Sachin who single handed fought the mighty Modi and shown him the door. It was Ashoke Gehlot who led the congress to humiliating defeat who was interested in his only son’s to be elected as MP while he lost for which Gehlot made public displeasure public. Ashok Gehlot as CM opf Rajasthan tried his best to get his son elected to the Rajasthan Cricket Board President which he failed to make again and compromised to make him the Treasures of the Rajasthan Cricket Board. All these months that Ashok Gehlot made all efforts to demonize his deputy while Sonia Gandhi kept doing hospital and home also making some statements while Rahul Gandhi making all effort to keep himself afloat. India needs Congress party but not of the Gandhi family or its loyalists who have all been seen making money and waiting to be Minister only when party comes to power. Sachin has a long struggle to undertake all these years he fought the communal BJP led by RSS now he will have to fight the Gang within the party. All the best Sachin!
