Jaipur : A day after Sachin Pilot and Ashok Gehlot announced truce and pledged to work together a twist was seen in the Assembly on Friday. Sachin Pilot's seat, which was used to be next to Ashok Gehlot, has been shifted near the opposition benches and ex deputy CM has a different take on it.

"When I came to the house and found that my seat had been changed, I was wondering why. When I sat there (pointing to the government benches), I felt safe. Now I am next to the opposition. Then I realized that I have been sent to the sarhad (border). That is because only the bravest and strongest warrior is sent to the border," said Sachin Pilot during his address.

The 42-year-old leader dropped his revolt against CM Ashok Gehlot last week after he met with the party majors Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi.

The Chief Minister had, in a blistering, unfiltered attack on Mr Pilot over the last few weeks, had even called him "nikamma, naakara (useless)". He also sacked Mr Pilot as his deputy.

He also mentioned in his address that how the MLAs have come together stronger and sharper than earlier.

"During this debate, many things will be said, much will be revealed. But whatever we had to say or do, me and my friends, we have received our cure. We consulted a doctor in Delhi and we are back now. We all stand united". His reference was to a meeting on Monday with Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, in which he agreed to a patch-up after being assured that a party panel would look into his grievances against the Chief Minister.
