Team Sachin Pilot releases video showing support of MLAs to him
New Delhi : Sachin Pilot's team has released a video of around 15 MLAs sitting together as Congress faces a political crisis in Rajasthan. The Deputy Chief Minister, who has openly rebelled against his party, on Sunday claimed he has the support of 30 MLAs and that the Ashok Gehlot government is in minority.
However, Sachin Pilot cannot be seen in the video which was shot on an undisclosed location. He has claimed support of 30 MLAs.
According to a news report he is believed to be camping out of Delhi as he was believed to have visited Manesar near the national capital.
Congress, on the other hand, has continued its claims of having the majority of support and said he only has around 16 MLAs. Later in the day, they revised the figure to 10 or 12.
This came after 12 MLAs were found missing from the meeting called by Gehlot at his residence on Monday morning.
After the meeting, Congress estimated that Mr Gehlot's government has the support of 106 MLAs.
While the number means a majority in the 200-member state assembly, it is a comedown from the 117 it had earlier.
