    Pilot told PTI that some leaders in Rajasthan were trying to fuel speculation that he is joining the BJP and he would like to categorically state that he was not doing so.

    Minutes after his removal as Rajasthan deputy CM, rebel Congress leader Sachin Pilot said, "Truth can be rattled, not defeated".

    Rebel Sachin Pilot's removal from the posts of Rajasthan deputy chief minister and Congress state unit chief on Tuesday evoked mixed reactions from the party leaders, with a section of them still hoping for resolution of the matter and the rest blaming the young leader for his haste.

    Most of the leaders, however, described the turn of events as "unfortunate" and "sad".
