Sachin Pilot, who was sacked as Rajasthan’s deputy chief minister and the state’s Congress chief after he rebelled, congratulated Govind Singh Dotasra on Wednesday on being appointed to the post he once held.
“I expect that without any pressure or prejudice, you will give full respect to those workers through whose hard work the government was formed,” he tweeted in Hindi, in an apparent reference to himself and the other dissidents.
“Thank you very much Sachin ji, Dotasra tweeted back.
“I also hope that you will leave the hospitality of the BJP and the (Manohar Lal) Khattar government and come to Jaipur to stand with the Congress government for maintaining the honour of all Congress workers whose hard work formed the government,” he wrote.
