I've been trying to prove this using Dirichlet's principle but I only got to a few results using all possible values for $\displaystyle r = \lfloor\mid\alpha(p_{i} - p_{j}) - r\mid\rfloor$ and considering the sets $\displaystyle [\frac{2}{n},\frac{3}{n}),\cdots\,[\frac{n-1}{n},1)$. I don't see it (Doh)
