“Fake news” was how the Congress dismissed reports that Sachin Pilot was in touch with the Gandhis. Not only that, Mr Pilot is still in talks with the BJP, sources in the party said shortly after its Rajasthan MLAs passed a resolution to penalize anyone indulging in anti-party activities.
“Sachin Pilot is not in direct touch with any of the Gandhis, sources in Congress said. The talks are being conducted only through emissaries and via media,” a leader said.
“The Congress understands he is still in touch with the BJP and negotiating with them despite his denial,” the leader added. The party, he however added, was still ready to listen and reach out to him.
