'Not worried about posts, was a battle of ideology': Sachin Pilot

Weeks after raising the banner of rebellion in Rajasthan and putting the Gehlot government under threat, Sachin Pilot has now made truce with the Congress. This happened after a meeting with Congress leader Rahul Gandhi & Priyanka Gandhi. Speaking to the media, Pilot said that he only wanted to raise some issues that had been bothering him and his supporters. Responding to the statements made by many party leaders against him, Pilot said that there should be some restraint. He added that the party has worked very hard to form government in Rajasthan and thanked the Congress top brass for hearing him out. Meanwhile, Congress leader Shashi Tharoor said that he is glad that Pilot has decided not to leave the Congress and said that he has always been in favour of such young and dynamic leaders remaining within the party fold. Tharoor added that all Congress leaders must come  together to protect the party and the country as well. Pilot's truce with the Congress also brings an end to the suspense over the survival of his government in Rajasthan. Watch the full video for all the details.

'If Rahul Gandhi wants to return…': Shashi Tharoor on Congress leadership

Congress leader Shashi Tharoor spoke on party leadership. He said that a clear cut decision as soon as possible would be ideal. Tharoor said that Congress leader Rahul Gandhi only needs to withdraw resignation to resume as party chief. Congress has been without a president after Rahul Gandhi's resignation. "I think we should be clear about our leadership going forward. I believe its unfair to expect Sonia ji to carry the burden. If Rahul is ready to resume leadership, all he has to do is withdraw resignation. The party will accept him as he was the incumbent president. Congress leaders asking how long can we carry on like this. We would ideally like a clear cut decision as soon as possible. Sonia Gandhi is not an absent leader, but she’s done this for a very long time. The party should inaugurate a process to identify a new leader," Tharoor said.

We would ideally like a clear cut decision as soon as possible."
