Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot accused the Bharatiya Janata Party of trying to de-stabilise the Rajasthan government. Gehlot alleged the party was offering MLAs rupees 10 to 15 crore to switch allegiance.
“We must focus on fighting coronavirus and that is what we are doing but they (BJP) are trying to de-stabilise the government. It wasn’t so during Vajpayee ji’s time but after 2014 there is pride and division on basis of religion,” said Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot
“They used to speak of ‘Congress Mukt Bharat’ but now they are afraid of Congress. The government is stable in Rajasthan, it will complete its full term. We are engaged in preparations to win the next elections ,” said Gehlot.
Fuelled by reports of alleged rivalry between Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and Depuy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has invited the latter for a crucial meeting at 5.30 pm on Sunday.
Meanwhile, Pilot arrived in Delhi today for a meeting with Congress interim President Sonia Gandhi,
The sources added that at least a dozen MLAs from Pilot’s camp are also staying put in Delhi-NCR.
Meanwhile, Congress General Secretary In-Charge of Rajasthan, Avinash Pandey has submitted a report to party’s interim president Sonia Gandhi that mentions there is some resentment of the MLAs that will be taken care of.
