Ashok Gehlot submits revised proposal to the Governor to convene the assembly session
The series of questions and answers between the Governor and the government in Rajasthan continues. In the latest development, the Rajasthan government has submitted a revised proposal to the Governor requesting him to allow the assembly session from July 31st.
The Ashok Gehlot’s government also replied to the queries raised by the Governor Kalraj Mishra related to the commencement of the state assembly session.
However, it is reported that the note submitted by the government does not carry any mention of the vote of confidence in the assembly.
Moreover, the tussle on the ‘21 days’ notice period’ concern is still alive. As per the reports, Rajasthan Transport Minister Pratap Singh said that out of the 21 days, 10 days have already passed since we first raised the matter to the Governor. He further said that if this was the clause, the Governor should have given the date in the first meeting itself.
The Chief Minister of Rajasthan Ashok Gehlot also informed that he has already apprised the Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the developments in the state. He said he has requested the Prime Minister to “get the matter seen”.
Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has been trying hard to save his government in Rajasthan after he sacked Dy CM Sachin Pilot from his position in the government and the party. Gehlot is claiming to have the majority with him. The Chief Minister claims the support of 102 MLAs, just one past the majority mark of 101 in the 200-member Rajasthan assembly.
