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."

This came as terms like 'gaddar', 'registered dalal', 'characterless', etc were being hurled between the Gehlot and Pilot camp leaders.
