Rajasthan political crisis | Governor doing Centre’s bidding, says Congress

Rajasthan political crisis | Governor doing Centre’s bidding, says Congress”

The Supreme Court on Saturday said that it will hear on July 27 the appeal filed by Rajasthan Speaker CP Joshi against High Court's earlier order to defer anti-defection proceedings against former Dy CM Sachin Pilot and 18 Congress MLAs till July 24.

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi had on Friday accused the BJP of a conspiracy to bring down its government in Rajasthan.

Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Sunday said that leadership is recognised in times of crisis but the BJP government at the centre has made its intention clear by attempting to topple the governments elected by the people when the country is facing pandemic. Further, many landmark judgements by the Supreme Court - in 1974, 1997 and in 2016 - have said that the governor has to follow the advice of the Cabinet on the issue.

The Governor asked Gehlot to submit again his recommendation for a session, clarifying six points. It is also disappointing that the Governor is not calling an Assembly session.

He was participating in the Congress' "SpeakUpForDemocracy" online campaign to expose what it called the designs of the BJP to topple the Ashok Gehlot dispensation in Rajasthan and other state governments run by opposition parties.

The dharna was called off, according to the Congress, after Mishra said he would abide by the Constitution and not act under any pressure. Eighteen other MLAs are backing Pilot.

Another poser by the Governor is - what's your agenda for the session and what's the date from which you want it?

The rebel MLAs are incommunicado and the Congress wants to get them to the assembly, issue a fresh whip for the floor test and force them to take a public stand because dissidents have been saying they don't want to join the BJP.

Earlier, Rajasthan Governor's Secretariat had said that the state government had presented a paper to convene the session of the Assembly at very short notice on the night of July 23. "In the normal process, 21 days notice is required to call a session", it added. He also told the MLAs that they may have to stay put there longer. "Today, BJP is conspiring to topple democratically elected Congress government after doing the same in Madhya Pradesh, BJP is now trying to "murder democracy" in Rajasthan", it said. The governor's import in the question is that no one was asking the government to prove majority, so why should there be a rush.
