The Rajasthan High Court on Thursday deferred to tomorrow the hearing on a petition filed by Sachin Pilot and 18 other Congress MLAs against disqualification notices issued to them by Assembly Speaker CP Joshi. Congress MLA Prithviraj Meena today moved the High Court challenging the Assembly Speaker’s disqualification notice to 19 legislators considered loyal to former Deputy CM Sachin Pilot.

This comes a day after the Rajasthan Speaker sent notices to 19 MLAs including Sahin Pilot asking them to submit their response in two days by July 17. The Congress has sought their disqualification over anti-party activities.

The Congress has accused Sachin Pilot and 18 other MLAs of conspiring with the Bharatiya Janata Party to topple its Rajasthan government headed by Ashok Gehlot. The chief minister too has levelled this charge against the rebel MLAs, who believed to have been camping in Manesar, Haryana.

The Congress has already sacked Sachin Pilot from the posts of Deputy CM and Rajasthan Congress President. Along with him, two ministers considered close to him were also removed from the ministry. The move came after Sachin Pilot and 18 other MLAs refused to join Congress Legislature Meet in Jaipur, Rajasthan.
