Sachin Pilot has made his first response after being sacked from the position of Deputy Chief Minister of Rajasthan. The party also refused to make him President of the state unit of Congress, a position which reportedly was promised to him as part of a peace making deal.
In a tweet in Hindi, Sachin Pilot said that truth can be disturbed, not defeated.
सत्य को परेशान किया जा सकता है पराजित नहीं।

Cracking down on the rebel party leader, the party also removed his loyalists Vishvendra Singh and Ramesh Meena from the state cabinet.
Congress leader and spokesperson Randeep Surjewala announced the decision after a Congress Legislature Party (CLP) meeting held in Jaipur. Surjewala said Education Minister Govind Singh Dotasara will be the new Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) chief.
Surjewala said Sachin Pilot enjoyed the affection and blessings of Congress president Sonia Gandhi and was given political power at a young age. “Yet, he and other ministers were trying to topple the state government as part of a BJP conspiracy,” he added.
