While some said Pilot was “welcome to join the BJP”, others said the party would consider “all options to overthrow” the Ashok Gehlot government.
“I am not joining the BJP,” Sachin Pilot said on Wednesday, asserting that he had worked hard to defeat the saffron party and bring the Congress back to power in Rajasthan.
Pilot told PTI that some leaders in Rajasthan were trying to fuel speculation that he is joining the BJP and he would like to categorically state that he was not doing so.
