The Sachin Pilot camp’s long-pending demand on Cabinet reshuffle may get delayed due to the Assembly session.
BTP has got the support from the forces in Jharkhand, so we supported Congress and they helped us to keep BTP at a bay, BJP leader Kataria said
In his address on completion of two years of Congress government in Rajasthan, the chief minister Ashok Gehlot may have claimed to have fulfilled 251 of 501 promises, as mentioned in the party’s manifesto ahead of the assembly polls, but the road ahead for the government is full of challenges.
FIR had been lodged on Oct 1 at Jaipur’s Police station against Lokendra Singh who is the media manager of former Dy CM Sachin Pilot and Sharat Kumar, a Rajasthan-based senior journalist working with Aaj Tak news channel.
In the morning, Rajasthan Parliamentary Affair Minister Shanti Dhariwal had moved the motion of confidence in Rajasthan Assembly.
In the 200-member Rajasthan Assembly, Ashok Gehlot-led Congress had the support of 107 MLAs.
The Congress seems confident of winning the trust vote with the support of 107 MLAs in the 200 member assembly. The BJP has 72 members.
With the disgruntled MLAs led by Pilot back in the party-fold following the intervention of the top leadership, the Congress is likely to pass the floor test.
Sachin Pilot and Rajasthan Chief Minister Gehlot shook hands in a moment marking the return of the sacked deputy chief minister and 18 other dissident MLAs to the party-fold, after the intervention earlier this week by the top Congress leadership in Delhi.
Even though the Congress party has brokered an understanding between Gehlot and Pilot factions for now, there are various challenges that lie ahead for smooth functioning of the government in Rajasthan.
The opposition party's decision comes days after an 'amicable resolution' of the nearly month-long political cisis in Rajasthan.
In an apparent reference to the return of Sachin Pilot and other rebel MLAs, the CM Ashok Gehlot said that he told the MLAs that they have to bear and work in the interest of people.
A Congress leader said the legislators in Ashok Gehlot camp objected to the statements by Sachin Pilot and other dissident MLAs on their return. The chief minister has asked them to stay calm.
The changing political realities, coupled with the lure of clinging on to power even among those who hold constitutional office, demand today that the powers of a Governor be redefined, writes Jaiveer Shergill.
Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said, 'The political crisis in Rajasthan Congress stands resolved amicably by the intervention of none other than Rahul Gandhi himself.'
'We raised issues of principles before the Congress leadership and welcome their assurance of time-bound redressal of our grievances,' Sachin Pilot said after meeting Rahul Gandhi.
BJP legislative party leader Gulab Chand Kataria claimed a unity in the Congress ranks can only be temporary.
When asked whether the party’s doors for Sachin Pilot camp have been closed, Govind Singh Dotasra said, 'Doors were open. They have run away. We have not asked them to go.'
