Days after ‘traitor’ slur, Gehlot and Pilot put up show of unity ahead of Rahul’s Bharat Jodo Yatra in Rajasthan


Jaipur, November 29

A day after Congress leader Rahul Gandhi called both Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and his former deputy Sachin Pilot assets to the party, the CM on Tuesday suggested that the matter rests there.

“When Rahul Gandhi has said that our leaders are assets then we are assets… where is the dispute then,” Gehlot said when asked about the former party president’s observation.

Gehlot’s remarks were in sharp contrast to the interview he gave last week to NDTV, calling Pilot, with whom he is caught in a tussle for power, a “traitor”.

Asked to comment, Gandhi had told reporters in Indore on Monday that both leaders were assets to the party.

“This is the beauty of our party that after our top leader says anything, there is no scope (for further argument),” Gehlot told reporters here.

Last week’s jibe by Gehlot – and a sharp response from Pilot – came just days before Gandhi’s Bharat Judo Yatra is scheduled to enter Rajasthan.

The CM said all leaders together will make the yatra a success in the state.
