Congress chief Sachin Pilot has been surrounded just like the heroic Abhimanyu who dies in a one-against-all battle within the Mahabharata, a member of his camp advised NDTV on Thursday, following a no-holds-barred assault on the politician by his bete noire Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot.
“Sachin Pilot has been surrounded like Abhimanyu. And like him, he is aware of the best way to penetrate the Chakravyuh,” Rajasthan minister Rajender Singh Guda advised NDTV, referring to the epic battle formation that the warrior was capable of thwart earlier than perishing.
Mr Guda was responding to Ashok Gehlot brazenly calling Mr Pilot a “gaddar” (traitor) for the primary time, in an interview with NDTV, and saying he may by no means be made Chief Minister, in a dare to the Congress management.
“Ashok Gehlot doesn’t hearken to Sonia Gandhi. The Chief Minister ought to say why the MLA who was with Sachin was made a minister. When Sachin’s MLAs took Rs 10 crores (a cost that Mr Gehlot made), why did he make him a minister?” he requested, referring to himself.
“Those that are actually calling Sachin a traitor ought to have taken a stand earlier. Congress Excessive Command ought to take disciplinary motion [against the comments],” Mr Guda mentioned.
