Amid the ongoing political crisis in Rajasthan, the Congress Legislature Party is to meet in Jaipur sometime from now. Legislators have started coming for this meeting. A whip has been issued by the Congress party that whoever does not come to this meeting, strict action will be taken on it. Meanwhile, the Sachin Pilot Group claims that there are thirty MLAs in their support, who will not attend this meeting.
How many MLAs support Sachin Pilot?
- In Rajasthan, the Congress is divided into two factions, in which case their claims are being made on behalf of everyone. Sachin Pilot’s faction claims that they have about 30 MLAs, while more may come together.
- And soon these MLAs can submit their resignations to the assembly speaker. On the other hand the Congress is denying this claim, but only about 75 Congress MLAs were able to reach the meeting held at Ashok Gehlot’s residence on Sunday night, which has alerted the Congress.
What does Rajasthan’s number game say?
- In Rajasthan, the Congress and its allies have an absolute majority and the BJP is far away. If some MLAs change the floor, then there is no big crisis on the government of Rajasthan.
- Rajasthan Assembly has a total of 200 seats, out of which Congress has 107 MLAs besides it has the support of some other independent MLAs, whereas BJP has only 72 MLAs.
- Now if according to the claim of Sachin Pilot, 30 MLAs change the floor, then Ashok Gehlot government may face a crisis.
Cross-border battle over the issue?
The battle of cross-border is going on since the assembly elections in Ashok Gehlot and Sachin Pilot in Rajasthan. But at present, this dispute deepened when Ashok Gehlot accused the BJP of toppling the government, and warned some traitors inside the party. A group was formed to investigate this, which sent a notice to Sachin Pilot for questioning. However, such notice was also sent to CM. After this, the dispute increased. At the same time, Sachin Pilot’s term as state president is ending and by-elections and panchayat elections are also to be held in Rajasthan.
