Rajasthan Government crisis Today Latest News Updates: Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala said that the party’s door are open for Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot, the rebel leader who has claimed that he has the support of over 30 party MLAs in the state’s 200-member assembly.
As many as 100 MLAs arrived at Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot’s residence in Jaipur to prove the government’s majority amid the political crisis in Rajasthan on Monday. Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala said the party’s door are open for Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot, the rebel leader who has claimed that he has the support of over 30 party MLAs in the state’s 200-member assembly.
Earlier in the day, the Congress had issued a whip to all its MLAs, mandating everyone’s presence in the legislative party meeting. The move to test the political waters of Congress in the state comes just four months after the party let Madhya Pradesh slip from its grasp. This has once again underlined the leadership vacuum in the party and how its sense of drift is deepening faultlines within: old versus young, second-generation leaders versus those who rose through the ranks.
Meanwhile, the BJP is watching closely to see if it can find an opportunity put up an alternate arrangement in Jaipur. But the party is not yet ready to take any step, a source said. “We are just watching the situation. The game still does not appear to be set for the BJP,” a senior party leader said.
