Calling it an end to the month-long political crisis in Rajasthan politics that started with the rebellion by then deputy chief minister Sachin Pilot, Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot-led Rajasthan Government on Friday won vote of confidence in the State Assembly.
The motion of confidence moved by the Congress government was passed by voice vote while the 19 MLAs who stood by Sachin Pilot during the crisis voted in favour of Gehlot.
As the detailed list of who all voted for Ashok Gehlot, the Congress party has 107 MLAs with the support of Independents and allies while BJP has 72 members in the 200-member Legislative Assembly.
“I will not let the government topple at any cost even if you make all attempts,” said the Chief Minister referring to BJP leaders after the win with a clear majority.
Putting complete faith on Congress, Sachin Pilot in his first reaction said that a roadmap has been prepared to address all the issues that were being raised. ” I have complete faith, that roadmap will be announced timely,” he said.
Special seating arrangements were made in the Assembly to maintain social distancing in view of the novel coronavirus pandemic. The House later adjourned to meet again next Friday.
