Rajasthan political crisis updates: A fresh desert storm threatens to sweep the ground beneath the Congress party’s feet in Rajasthan with Deputy Chief Minister and PCC chief Sachin Pilot signalling a revolt over differences with Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot. Rajasthan Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot claims 30 MLAs are backing him, which apparently puts Ashok Gehlot government in minority in Rajasthan. Pilot is also likely to skip Rajasthan Legislature Party meeting on Monday, news agency PTI reported quoting a statement issued by the Deputy CM. Pilot is believed to have arrived in the national capital on Saturday night along with a group of 20-25 MLAs who are camping at a Gurugram hotel. According to a PTI report citing sources, MLAs loyal to Pilot have claimed that they cannot stand the repeated undermining by the Gehlot camp. The report further corroborate indications that the summons issued to Pilot by the police’s special operations group (SOG) acted as the last straw in the ongoing rift between the two top leaders in the western state. The Pilot supporters maintain that the SOG’s letter to the Deputy CM to join the probe into attempts to topple the Gehlot government was meant to ‘humiliate him’. The SOG had on July 10 sent a letter to Pilot seeking his availability for recording his statement in connection with the alleged attempts to topple Congress government in the state. Ashok Gehlot and several Congress ministers have been alleging that the opposition BJP was making attempts to destabilise the government, a charge categorically denied by the BJP. The PTI report said Pilot and MLAs supporting him have resolved that they cannot work under Gehlot’s chief ministership after the letter was served to ‘publicly discredit’ the PCC chief. They asserted that while problems existed before too, this letter crossed all limits and such humiliation cannot be tolerated. Meanwhile, Ashok Gehlot has convened a meeting on Sunday night of Congress MLAs and others supporting his government. The meeting is likely to take place at the CM’s residence at 9 pm.
