New Delhi: Congress general secretary KC Venugopal Friday dismissed all the speculations over a new political outfit to be formed by party leader Sachin Pilot in Rajasthan.

Venugopal informed that there have been interactions with Sachin Pilot and there is no such plan. He added that the party will contest upcoming polls unitedly.

“…I don’t think so. These are all rumours…To my knowledge, there is no such movement in Rajasthan. I had a word with Sachin Pilot 2-3 times. Don’t worry, we will fight unitedly. Rajasthan Congress will be together. Don’t believe these rumours,” said the Congress general secretary.

Prior to that, Rajasthan Congress In-charge Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa had also put away the speculation on new political party by Sachin Pilot who has been face-to-face with Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot often.

“I am hearing this from you, I think there is no such thing. He (Pilot) did not have this in his mind before and does not have it now,” said Randhawa. He pointed fingers at media for raising such speculations.

Further the in-charge recalled a recently-held meeting of party chief Mallikarjun Kharge and senior leader Rahul Gandhi with CM Ashok Gehlot and his former deputy Sachin Pilot. He said in the meeting, the two leaders — Ashok Gehlot and Sachin Pilot — decided to work unitedly.
