Bengaluru: At a time when the Congress has miserably failed to keep its house in order, its senior leader Digvijay Singh has blamed BJP for the Rajasthan political impasse and urged rebel Sachin Pilot to stay with the Congress.
"The BJP is behind the crisis in Rajasthan," Singh said.
"Age is on your side. Ashok (Gehlot) may have offended you, but all such issues are best resolved amicably. Don’t make the mistake that Scindia made. BJP is unreliable. Nobody who joined it from any other party has succeeded there,” he added.
"Sachin is like my son. He respects me and I also like him. I called him three-four times and also texted him. He didn't revert. He used to respond immediately earlier," he said.
"It is good to be ambitious. How can one move forward without having ambitions, but along with ambition, one must also have commitment to your organisation, ideology and the nation," Singh said further.
On the issue of Pilot forming a new party, he said, "I heard that he (Pilot) may form a new party. But what is the need for it. Has Congress not given him anything? He was made an MP at 26, a Union minister at 32, the state Congress president at 34 and deputy chief minister at 38. What else does he want? Time is on his side.”
Presently, the Rajasthan high court is hearing a case related to Speaker serving a disqualification notice to Sachin and his aides.
Sources say that Sachin is also in talks with the BJP and has not minced word in asking for the CM’s post.
