Former Rajasthan deputy chief minister Sachin Pilot left for Delhi on Tuesday amid an ongoing political turmoil in the state.

Sources close to the Congress leader said he has gone to the national capital for personal work and it has nothing to do with the latest political developments in Rajasthan.

Pilot took a flight to Delhi in the afternoon.

The Congress in Rajasthan plunged into a crisis on Sunday as several MLAs loyal to Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot resigned over a possible move to appoint Pilot as Gehlot's successor, their rebellion erupting just ahead of a Congress Legislature Party meeting.

Upset over the open rebellion in Rajasthan, Congress president Sonia Gandhi sought a written report on it on Monday from party observers Mallikarjun Kharge and Ajay Maken as the chances of Gehlot becoming the party chief receded and other names cropped up for the post.

Meanwhile, Pilot has denied reports that appeared in a section of the media that he has spoken to the Congress high-command about the latest political developments in Rajasthan.
