Malinga alleged on Monday that Sachin Pilot, the then deputy chief minister and state president of the party, had discussed with him about leaving the party and offered money for it.
Pilot dismissed the charge as ‘baseless and regrettable’ and said that this statement has been made available to the MLA and he will take strict legal action against them. The Congress has removed Pilot from his posts on charges of involvement in the conspiracy to topple the Gehlot government.
At the same time, Malinga, who stayed in a hotel here with the Gehlot camp MLAs, has said that they have not received notice and they have nothing to say in the matter.
