Reports that Sachin Pilot may launch a rival organisation on June 11, the anniversary of his father Rajesh Pilot’s passing, were denied as rumours by the Congress on Friday.
One day before a programme intended to honour Rajesh Pilot on the occasion of his death anniversary, Congress general secretary (organisation) K C Venugopal declared that the party is unified and will run in the next Rajasthan assembly elections as a single body.
I’m not a fan of rumours. The truth is that after talking with Ashok Gehlot and Sachin Pilot, the Congress president and Rahul Gandhi decided to travel together. That is the Congress party’s stance, he said, according to PTI.
When questioned explicitly about rumours that Pilot had started a new political party, he responded, “As far as I know, there is no such thing.”
