Watch: Sachin Pilot's response to Ashok Gehlot's 'nikamma' jibe

While Sachin Pilot has made truce with the Congress party, questions are now being raised on how he would get along with CM Gehlot. During the peak of the crisis in Rajasthan, several Gehlot backers had launched  a tirade against Pilot and his loyalists. The Chief Minister himself had once referred to Pilot as 'nikamma' and accused him of conspiring to topple the state government with the help of the BJP. Gehlot had said that Pilot had a meteoric rise in the party but he used his innocent face to get a sway over the media and provoke MLAs to rebel against his government. Sachin Pilot has now responded to the jibes and said that some of the things that were said were saddening and added that he would never cross the Lakshman Rekha in attacking anybody. In a jibe at Gehlot, he said that the Chief Minister is elder to him and he would refrain from responding to his attacks but added that the facts are now out for everyone to see. Watch the video for all the details.

'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.
