In an enormous twist within the Rajasthan Congress disaster, the BJP right this moment introduced that it could transfer a no-confidence movement in opposition to the Ashok Gehlot authorities within the particular meeting session beginning tomorrow. Soon after, the ruling Congress mentioned it could go for a belief vote to show its majority in the home.
If the Chief Minister strikes a Confidence Motion, it’ll supersede the no-confidence movement moved by every other member, in accordance with the foundations.
Chief Minister Gehlot had deliberate a belief vote for days, even when he had a wafer-thin majority of 102, only one greater than the bulk mark within the 200-member Rajasthan meeting. Winning the vote will give him a six-month reprieve.
With the return of Sachin Pilot, whose revolt had briefly endangered the Congress authorities, Mr Gehlot has the help of 125 MLAs. The Chief Minister, on the top of his conflict with Mr Pilot, had accused him of conspiring with the BJP to bribe MLAs to cross over and produce his authorities down, in the identical template as Karnataka and Madhya Pradesh.
The BJP has 72 MLAs and the help of three extra, hardly sufficient to problem Mr Gehlot on the ground of the home. The celebration doesn’t count on any change of coronary heart from Team Pilot both.
Sources say the BJP’s transfer is extra of a technique to power a dialogue within the meeting to nook the Gehlot authorities on varied points.
Till now, the BJP had all the time distanced itself from the Congress disaster and had denied that it could transfer a no-confidence movement in opposition to the state authorities.
The opposition celebration was not even seen to consolidate its flock or plan any technique, with its prime Rajasthan chief, Vasundhara Raje, sustaining silence.
Vasundhara Raje was current right this moment for what was the primary assembly of BJP MLAs for the reason that Congress insurgent disaster broke out early July.
On Tuesday, a day after Sachin Pilot’s patch-up with the Congress management, the BJP cancelled its MLAs’ meet.
“We are reworking our strategy,” the BJP’s Ghulabchand Kataria, Leader of Opposition, advised NDTV, insisting that regardless of the truce, the Congress wouldn’t full its five-year time period.
Mr Gehlot remarked: “The BJP doesn’t know what hit them! They suddenly cancelled their meeting. They realized that their conspiracy didn’t work.”
