‘Name-calling’ serves no purpose: Sachin Pilot on Gehlot’s ‘gaddaar’ remark | India News,The Indian Express

Citing differences with Ashok Gehlot, Sachin Pilot in 2020, along with his supporters, left Rajasthan and stayed in BJP-ruled Haryana before being cajoled by the Congress high command to return.

“Unbecoming of someone with such experience to use such language, I’ve always refused to do so,” Pilot said as quoted by the news agency PTI.

“Name-calling and mud-slinging serve no purpose; it’s time to unitedly fight BJP to defeat it, strengthen Rahul Gandhi’s hand,” added the Congress Rajasthan MLA who was in Madhya Pradesh to take part in Congress’s “Bharat Jodo Yatra”.

Earlier in the day, Gehlot, in an interview with news channel NDTV, called Pilot a “gaddar” (traitor) and said he cannot replace him as he had revolted against Congress in 2020 and tried to topple his own government.

“The MLAs will never accept someone who has revolted and has been dubbed as a gaddar. How can he become the chief minister? How can the MLAs accept such a person as the chief minister? I have proof that Rs 10 crore each were distributed to the MLAs holed up in a Gurugram resort for toppling the Congress government in Rajasthan,” Gehlot told NDTV.

Gehlot said if Pilot had apologised to the MLAs and won them over, things would have been different.
