The AICC would now take a call on whether to remove Pilot and the other rebels from the party. The AICC could also decide on removing Pilot from the post of PCC Chief.
Meanwhile Congress leader, Priyanka Gandhi has urged Pilot not to leave the Congress.
Not attending the CLP was fine, but you should not leave the party, Pilot was told.
