He informed Ashok Gehlot, Rajasthan CM, about the incident, said Singh.

Malinga said that he, too, had offers but he declined. He had talked to Sachin Ji, who asked him to change sides but he refused by saying that this is not right, he will not do it for money. He further said that in BSP, one has to give money to get a ticket, while on the contrary in Congress and BJP, that is not the system. Sachin Pilot had said money is not an issue, you ask what you want and you will get.

There is no comment from Pilot on this allegation yet.

Malinga said that BJP had never reached out to him, and neither had he talked to them.

He added that he has no hostility with Pilot but he is speaking the truth.

On 12 July, former deputy CM Sachin Pilot declared revolt by claiming to have the support of more than 18 legislators. Since then Rajasthan jumped into a political crisis.  Although, he couldn’t prove the support of more than 18 legislators by the next day.
