Vote against Congress in Rajasthan Assembly: BSP tells its 6 MLAs
Jaipur : Rajasthan is getting embroiled in political crisis with tussle to save the Ashok Gehlot government in the state. Mayawati-led Bahujan Samajwadi Party has reportedly asked its 6 MLAs elected to the state Assembly to vote against Congress in case of any ‘no confidence motion or any other proceedings to be held during the upcoming session.
The party said that the MLAs will face disqualification under Para 2 (l)(b) of the 10th Schedule of the Constitution of India, if any of them violates the order.
"Notices have been issued to the six MLAs separately as well as collectively, stating that since BSP is a national party, there cannot be any merger at the state level at the instance of the six MLAs, unless there is a merger of the BSP at the national level. If they violate it, they will be disqualified," BSP National General Secretary Satish Chandra Mishra told news agency ANI.
After Sachin Pilot and MLAs under his confidence rebelled against Ashok Gehlot, the Congress has been struggling to keep up with the minimum mark to stay in power.
Earlier on Sunday, Gehlot government had sent a revised proposal to the Governor to call a session of the Assembly on July 31.
