In Rajasthan after days of uncertainty created by , Rajasthan Governor Kalraj Mishra who finally made up his mind on Wednesday issued orders convening an Assembly session from August 14.
This comes after Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot-led Cabinet sent fourth proposal to Mishra seeking to convene Assembly session.
“We have again sent a proposal to Governor Kalraj Mishra seeking to convene the Assembly session. We hope that the Governor will accept the proposal this time and announce the date to begin the session soon,” said Rajasthan Minister Pratap Khachariyawas on Wednesday.
Earlier in the day, Mishra had asked the state government to deliberate on the need for 21-day notice period and maintaining social distancing norms in case confidence motion is moved while returning the third proposal sent by Gehlot to convene an Assembly session.
Mishra had on July 27 said that Raj Bhavan had never intended “not to call” the Assembly session and asked the Gehlot government to deliberate on three points including a 21-day notice period for convening a session and maintaining social distancing norms.
He had said the statements from the state government make it clear that it wants to bring a trust vote but there is no mention of it in the proposal sent for convening the session.
Rajasthan Congress is in turmoil after simmering differences between Sachin Pilot and Gehlot came out in the open. Pilot was removed as the Deputy Chief Minister and the state unit chief of Congress.
The Congress has accused the BJP of indulging in horse-trading to bring down the Gehlot government. The BJP has rejected the allegations.
