Rajasthan Governor Kalraj Mishra had turned down three earlier proposals for Assembly Sessions, saying if Ashok Gehlot government wanted the assembly summoned at short notice, it should specify that it planned to hold a vote of confidence.
The case had been registered against the MLA after surfacing of three audio tapes in one of which he is allegedly talking to Union Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat to topple the Ashok Gehlot government.
In an exclusive interview with Satish Padmanabhan, Congress veteran Ashok Gehlot speaks about his government's plans for Rajasthan, Hindutva and the possible outcome of the forthcoming general elections.
The way the Congress party handled the selection of new Chief Ministers for the Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan, it suggests that the 'high command' culture in the party may have given way to more inner-party democracy. The same cannot be said for the BJP.
