Pilot says he is not joining BJP

NEW DELHI: “I am not joining the BJP,” Congress leader Sachin Pilot said on Wednesday, asserting that the speculation about his switching sides was being fuelled by certain leaders in Rajasthan to tarnish his image.
Pilot’s remarks come a day after the Congress sacked him as Rajasthan’s deputy chief minister and the party’s state unit president. Two loyalists of Pilot were also dropped from the state Cabinet.
“I have worked very hard to bring the Congress party back in the government and defeat the BJP,” he said.
In an apparent reference to chief minister Ashok Gehlot’s camp, Pilot said some leaders in Rajasthan were trying to fuel speculation that he is joining the BJP and that he would like to categorically state that he was not doing so.
“Such a speculation is being fuelled to tarnish my image,” he said.
