Not joining BJP: Sachin Pilot
New Delhi : Former Deputy CM Rajasthan Sachin Pilot has clarified that he is not joining Bharatiya Janata Party and is yet to decide his future course of action.
"I am not joining the BJP. I would like to make it clear that I have no plans to join the BJP. Attempts to link me to the BJP are to malign me in the eyes of the Congress high-command," Sachin Pilot told NDTV, pointing out that he had worked hard to defeat the BJP.
"I am still a member of the Congress party," he insisted, a day after he was removed as Deputy Chief Minister of Rajasthan and the party's chief in the state.
Sachin Pilot was removed from his post after he initiated a revolt against his own party and refused to attend the two meetings called by the CM Ashok Gehlot.
There were speculations that he will be joining hands with BJP, which he has rejected straight away.
Amid reports that he wanted the Congress to name him Chief Minister in place of Ashok Gehlot, Sachin Pilot told NDTV that he has yet to decide on a future course of action. "I would like to serve the people of Rajasthan," he said.
