When asked for a comment on Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot's recent remarks on the 2020 coup, his former deputy Sachin Pilot on Monday said his focus right now was to bring back the Congress government in the state.

"Earlier also, CM Ashok Gehlot had said many things about me like 'Nakara', 'Nikamma '. I don't take his statements otherwise as he is experienced, senior & a father figure... Right now my focus is to bring back our govt in the state," news agency ANI quoted Pilot as saying.

Adding that Gehlot's statement should be taken in the "right spirit", Pilot said that former Congress chief Rahul Gandhi recently praised his "patience level".

"A few days back, at an event in Delhi, Rahul Gandhi had praised my patience level. If a leader like Rahul Gandhi is appreciating my patience level then I think no one should unnecessarily get disturbed by his statement & take it in a right spirit," he said.

Earlier on Saturday, Ashok Gehlot launched a scathing attack on Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and Union Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, alleging he was in connivance with Congress leader Sachin Pilot in 2020 to topple the government in the state.

Gehlot said Shekhawat's remarks prove that he was the "main character" in the attempt to topple his government.

"Now you are taking the name of Sachin Pilot that he missed (opportunity). You have proved it that you were in connivance with him," he told reporters in Sikar.

Shekhawat had said at a meeting in Chomu town of Jaipur that Pilot missed the opportunity and had the government changed, water would have reached state areas through the Eastern Rajasthan Canal Project.
