“ANI and others had come to take my quote. They requested about Mr Scindia alleging that the Congress is sidelining Mr Pilot and so he’s upset. To that I responded about Scindia, that he’s within the BJP, so we do not want certificates from him. However by mistake Sachin Pilot’s identify was taken. I did not realise my mistake then. I had truly mentioned this about Scindia, not Pilot. I do know pilot has clearly mentioned he’s not going to the BJP,” Mr Punia clarified on digital camera.
It’s clear within the video that query was requested about Scindia ji and my reply was about Sh Scindia and by slip of tongue I took Sachin Pilots’ identify as a substitute of Scindia. Mistake is regretted https://t.co/hYws6XefKX
