“I told you repeatedly that I was not joining the BJP. It was a fight for self-respect and honour,” said Sachin Pilot, 42, to Gulf News after the prodigal ended his month-long revolt and returned to base - the Congress party. It took intervention from former Congress chief Rahul Gandhi and his sibling Priyanka Gandhi and a two-hour plus meeting in Rahul Gandhi’s home for Pilot to come back on board. The Gandhi family assured him that his grievances would be addressed and that his group of MLAs would get an honourable settlement.

As per news report of Gulf News, Pilot had been divested of his two posts - deputy chief minister and state Congress chief and is unlikely to get them back. A three-member committee to address his issues in a time-bound manner has been set up. It comprises Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, Ahmed Patel, Congress treasurer, and KC Venugopal, organisation general secretary.
