He said differences can be ideological, on functioning or thoughts but in politics, there is no space for vendetta. “I had and have good relations with all leaders,” he said.

“I am happy that the party leadership heard our issue be it related to functioning, development, workers participation, self-respect etc. The AICC has constituted a committee, which in a time-bound manner will address the issues,” said Pilot.

On his arrival in Jaipur, he was mobbed by a huge group of supporters who welcomed him by raising slogans in his favour.

Earlier in the day Pilot had said that his rebellion was never “anti-party” but merely a means to articulate the happenings in Rajasthan

On Monday too he had said that he was not after any post, Pilot had said it was the party that allotted a position and could take it back as well.

Pilot had met former Congress president Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra in Delhi on Monday to end the revolt in the state unit that threatened the survival of the Ashok Gehlot government ahead of an assembly session on August 14.

He put his rebellion in cold storage after the party high command on Monday promised to look into the issues he had him against Gehlot.

He was sacked as deputy chief minister and removed as Congress chief in Rajasthan last month after his differences with Gehlot came to a head.

After Pilot made his peace move on Monday, Gehlot also extended an olive branch on Tuesday saying peace and brotherhood will remain in party.
