He must have spoken to Sachin Tendulkar: Pilot on Bahuguna’s statement

Jaipur, Jun 11 (PTI) Taking a jibe at BJP leader Rita Bahuguna Joshi, former Rajasthan Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot on Friday said that “she may have spoken to cricketer Sachin Tendulkar as he did not speak to me”.

It is worth noting that BJP leader Bahuguna had said in the past that he had talked to Congress leader Sachin Pilot, who is allegedly angry, about joining the BJP.

When Pilot was asked about this, he said in a stern tone, “Rita Bahuguna Joshi said that we have spoken to Sachin, maybe he has spoken to Sachin Tendulkar. They don’t have the courage to talk to me.

It is noteworthy that the political rhetoric has again escalated after Pilot expressed his displeasure over not addressing the issues raised by him in an interview. BJP leader Bahuguna had reportedly said that he had “talked to Sachin”.

Pilot was participating in a dharna organized in front of a petrol pump in Sanganer here as part of a protest organized on the call of the All India Congress Committee against the increased prices of essential commodities including petrol and diesel.

It is worth noting that amidst reports of displeasure of former Rajasthan Deputy Chief Minister Pilot, his supporters have expressed their displeasure over the delay in resolving the issues raised by him. About half a dozen MLAs close to Pilot also met him on Thursday at his residence in Civil Lines.

Earlier, Pilot reached Bhandana, Dausa to pay tribute to his father and former Union Minister Rajesh Pilot on his death anniversary and paid floral tributes at his memorial. He said, “His determination to serve the country with full readiness and dedication and his association with Karmabhoomi is an inspiration for all of us.”

It is noteworthy that on Friday, on the death anniversary of Sachin’s father, a wreath-laying program was organized at his memorial in Bhandana.

At the same time, Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and Congress State President Govind Singh Dotasra also paid tribute to Rajesh Pilot by tweeting.

Meanwhile, another close aide of Pilot, MLA Hemaram Choudhary met him on Friday. Chaudhary, an MLA from Gudha Malani, had sent his resignation from the membership of the Assembly to the Speaker last month.

After meeting Pilot, Choudhary told reporters that he resigned listening to his heart. “People can appeal to me to withdraw my resignation. But I have to decide about this.

Chaudhary had emailed his resignation on May 18 and was in Jaipur for the first time since then. About half a dozen MLAs close to Pilot also met him at his residence here on Thursday.
