Deepening the cracks within the Rajasthan Congress , Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Thursday continued his rhetoric against his former deputy Sachin Pilot , calling him a " gaddar " (traitor) this time. "A gaddar (traitor) cannot be a Chief Minister," the senior Congress leader told NDTV in an exclusive interview. "The High Command cannot make Sachin Pilot the Chief Minister… a man who doesn't have 10 MLAs. Who revolted. He betrayed the party, (he) is a traitor." In Political Pulse | Sachin Pilot supporters try new move: 'Resolve leadership issue before Rahul Yatra in Rajasthan' The infighting in the Congress has been intensifying between supporters of Gehlot and Pilot for some time now, prompting general secretary K C Venugopal to advise party leaders to refrain from making "public statements against other leaders or about party's internal matters". This came as terms like 'gaddar', 'registered dalal', 'characterless', etc were being hurled between the Gehlot and Pilot camp leaders.
