New Delhi: The doors of the Congress party are not closed for Sachin Pilot, the party’s National General Secretary Avinash Pande said on Wednesday.
“The party’s doors have not been closed for Pilot,” Pande tweeted. “May God give… good sense and he realises his mistake. I pray that he comes out of the trap of BJP [Bharatiya Janata Party].”
Pilot was removed as the deputy chief minister and Rajasthan party chief on Tuesday, after he failed to show up at a Legislature Party meeting convened by Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot.
But Pilot denied once again on Wednesday that he will join the BJP. The former deputy chief minister said that a few leaders in the state were behind the rumours on him joining the BJP.
“The BJP link is an attempt to malign me in the eyes of the Gandhis,” Pilot said. “I am still a member of the Congress party.” He claimed that he had not decided a future course for himself yet, but “would like to serve the people of Rajasthan”.
