Sachin Pilot congratulates Rajasthan's new Congress chief amid political crisis

Former Rajasthan Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot congratulated state's new Congress chief Govind Singh Dotasra on Wednesday.

Pilot also hoped that the new chief will take care of the party workers whose hard work helped Congress to form the government in the state.

Pilot's statement came after Dotasra formally took over as Rajasthan Congress chief.

Pilot was Congress chief in Rajasthan before he was sacked from the post earlier this month.

He was sacked after he rebelled against Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot.

Pilot was the Congress president in Rajasthan for six years.

He was widely credited for leading party to victory in 2018 assembly polls.

Meanwhile, CM Gehlot trooped to the residence of Governor Kalraj Mishra.

This came after Raj Bhavan returned his proposal to convene session of state assembly for third time.

The state government had proposed Mishra to reiterate its demand to convene assembly session from July 31.

Gehlot government, however, didn't mention whether it will seek a trust vote in the House.

Earlier, Mishra had suggested a 21-day notice period to convene the House.

He had sought clarity on session’s agenda and also advised live-streaming of the floor test, in case it was held.

Mishra had also asked about Covid-19 pandemic-related precautions in the assembly.

'Unhappy MLAs should attend assembly session': Gehlot to rebel legislators

Expressing confidence that his government will complete its full term, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Thursday said 'unhappy MLAs' should attend the assembly session as they have been elected on Congress symbol. Gehlot said he wants rebel MLAs to attend the assembly session next month and also took a veiled dig at MLAs supporting former Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot, saying they were 'playing the lap of BJP'. "I still want that those unhappy MLAs should attend the assembly session as they have been elected on Congress symbol. It is my responsibility to ensure that they are seen standing with the government in front of the public," he said. Meanwhile, Rajasthan Governor Kalraj Mishra agreed to convene assembly session on August 14. Speaking on it, the Chief Minister said he was happy that the governor has finally accepted his request to call the Assembly. Gehlot also attacked BSP chief Mayawati and alleged that she is making remarks under pressure from BJP. "Mayawati's complaint is not logical as all six BSP MLAs merged with us. She is giving a statement under pressure from BJP. The Centre is using ED, Income Tax, CBI and hence she is forced to give such a statement," he alleged.
