Speaking out for the first time after he was removed as Deputy Chief Minister and PCC Chief in Rajasthan , Former Congress leader Sachin Pilot has made it clear that he is not joining the BJP.
Pilot told PTI that some leaders in Rajasthan were trying to fuel speculation that he is joining the Bharatiya Janata Party and he would like to categorically state that he was not doing so. Pilot further told CNN News 18 , I have fought and defeated the BJP so why should I join them.
Meanwhile, Notices has been issued to Sachin Pilot and 18 other party members, for not attending Congress Legislative Party meetings. If they don’t respond within 2 days, then it will be considered that they are withdrawing their membership from CLP, said Rajasthan Congress in-charge Avinash Pande.
He said the party has filed a petition before the speaker for dismissal of such MLAs. If replies by the MLAs are not found to be justified, it is up to the speaker to decide for action, he added. A total of 19 party MLAs, including Pilot, were absent from the CLP meetings.
