Pilot should have waited more for yatra: Randhawa
New Delhi: With the Congress having sweeping victory in Karnataka and hopes of repeating the government in Rajasthan, State incharge Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa also seems to have softened his stance towards former Deputy CM Sachin Pilot. He referred to his past relations with the Pilot family and called him a younger brother. However, Randhawa said that the timing of Sachin’s visit was wrong and he should have waited a little longer.
Randhawa was talking to the media in New Delhi on Sunday. Pilot’s ‘Jan Sangharsh Yatra’ regarding paper leak and corruption entered its 4th day on Sunday.
Terming Pilot’s yatra as his personal journey, Randhawa said the timing is wrong. “When Karnataka was voting, he should have waited. We all should first talk about the Congress,” he said. “He is a little aggressive. One should be ambitious, but not overambitious. He has got a lot of time in the party. Congress is not like BJP. Our leaders are given more than they think. I will see who provoked, I didn’t not raise matters before I became the in-charge,” he said.
Regarding election face, Randhawa said that Rajasthan, MP and Chhattisgarh will contest elections unitedly. “Will contest elections with only one face, double face will not come. Gehlot is a very old leader, he has Congress in his heart and mind. He has the most experience in AICC,” he said.
