Rebel Congress leader Sachin Pilot, ousted as deputy chief minister and party state unit president, ha said he is not going to join the BJP, on Wednesday (July 15).

“I am not joining the BJP. I would like to make it clear that I have no plans to join the BJP. It is an attempt to malign me by linking me to the BJP,” Sachin Pilot told NDTV.

He said that he was still a member of the Congress, a day after he was stripped of his posts of deputy chief minister and the party’s Rajasthan unit president for revolting against Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot.
