Jyotiraditya Scindia, whose defection to the BJP earlier this year contributed to the Congress collapse in Madhya Pradesh, taunted his former party as it faced a rerun in Rajasthan with Sachin Pilot seen to attempt a split.
“Sad to see my erstwhile colleague Sachin Pilot too, being sidelined and persecuted by Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot. Shows that talent and capability find little credence in the Congress,” Mr Scindia tweeted.

Sachin Pilot, the deputy Chief Minister of Rajasthan, is in Delhi with a few MLAs loyal to him amid speculation that he is in talks with the BJP in moves to bring down the Ashok Gehlot-led Congress government.
