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.

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.
