Congress claims of having stable government in Rajasthan
Jaipur : Two senior Congress leaders rushed to Jaipur on Sunday to ease out differences between chief minister Ashok Gehlot and his deputy Sachin Pilot that left the government in state in crisis.
Two central observers – Randeep Singh Surjewala and Ajay Maken – attended a late-night meeting of Congress legislators held at the residence of Gehlot even as a message released by Pilot’s team claimed he had the backing of over 30 MLAs.
“All Congress MLAs are in touch with me and the government in Rajasthan is stable and will last its full term,” said Avinash Pande, in-charge of Rajasthan affairs in the Congress.
Congress, on the other hand, blamed BJP for all the crisis in the state.
“Congress is strongly working together. BJP is deliberately diverting the present situation. This conspiracy has been hatched by BJP,” he said.
But the BJP rejected these claims.
“We are not even thinking about forming a government in the state. This government will fall of its own ‘karma’ (deeds),” said Rajasthan unit chief Satish Poonia.
