The move comes on a day when party sacked Sachin Pilot from the post of deputy CM and State president of Rajasthan.

"For five years Sachin Pilot gave his blood , tears, toil and sweat for the Congress party between 2013-18. The Congress came back from a wretched 21 seats to 100. We just gave him a performance bonus. We are so meritocratic. We are so transparent," he had tweeted.
