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.

'Delhi eateries, shops to mention if meat served is halal or jhatka': NDMC Mayor

Eateries, shops in Delhi will now have to mention if meat being served is halal or jhatka. This comes after BJP-led North Delhi Municipal Corporation cleared a proposal in this regard. The proposal was recently moved by the Standing Committee of the NDMC. North Delhi Mayor Jai Prakash said the House 'cleared the proposal in its meeting’. “Eateries, shops in Delhi will have to display if they are serving halal or jhatka meat. We approved a proposal, making it mandatory for all eateries, meat shops to display it. They will have to put up posters stating whether they serve/sell halal or jhatka meat,” Prakash said. Jhatka' method is one in which an animal is slaughtered in one go, while in the 'halal' method, an animal is allowed to die after cutting a vein. A similar proposal was cleared by the House of BJP-led SDMC late January. Officials had said eateries, meat shops will have to display it 'clearly and visibly’.
