Politics in Rajasthan has been taking unexpected shocking twists ever since the young leader Sachin Pilot rebelled. After a sit-in at the Rajasthan governor’s house for almost five hours demanding Governor Kalraj Mishra to convene an immediate assembly session, state Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot dropped a bombshell on Saturday.
Hinting that he is likely to take things to next level, Gehlot stated that he and his legislators are ready to go to the Rashtrapati Bhavan, the President’s official residence at Delhi, and even the Prime Minister’s house. In unusual scenes, “Inquilab zindabad, Ashok Gehlot zindabad” slogans were raised by the MLAs, who were sitting on the lawns, in support of the CM.
Alleging that the ruling BJP is webbing a conspiracy around them, the senior Congress leader accused the Governor of stalling a decision on summoning House session upon pressuring from the ‘top’. It can be collected that Governor Kalraj Mishra also sought a reply on the six points from the state government on why it wants to convene a session.
Rajasthan High Court’s decision on Friday agreeing to hear in detail the challenge against anti-disqualification laws made by 19 rebel Congress MLAs has opened up the debate on a law considered settled on the Tenth Schedule of Constitution.
