Rajasthan BJP to move no-confidence motion against Gehlot govt; Cong to counter


Jaipur, August 13

Hours after the BJP said it will move a motion of no confidence in the Rajasthan assembly against the Ashok Gehlot-led Congress government, the ruling party on Thursday said it will move a confidence motion during the session beginning Friday.

The BJP in Rajasthan will move a motion of no confidence in the state assembly, leader of opposition Gulab Chand Kataria said.

The decision was taken in a BJP legislature party meeting held here on Thursday.

Hours later, a Congress leader said the Ashok Gehlot-led Congress government will move a confidence motion. This was announced Thursday at the Congress Legislature Party meeting chaired by Gehlot.

The session comes days after the top leadership of the Congress announced the return of Sachin Gehlot and 18 other dissident MLAs to the party-fold.

Pilot had led a rebellion against Gehlot, seeking a change in the party's leadership in Rajasthan.

At the CLP meeting held at his residence, Gehlot urged Congress MLAs to forget the acrimony of the past month and move on.

The party has 107 MLAs in the 200 member assembly.

After the BJP legislature party meeting, Kataria told reporters that the motion of no confidence would be moved in the assembly.

Misunderstanding in Cong should be forgiven, forgotten for moving forward: Gehlot

The opposition party’s decision comes days after an “amicable resolution” of the nearly month-long political crisis in Rajasthan.

The Congress had said on Monday that the crisis in Rajasthan was a “closed chapter” and all legislators supporting its government would work towards strengthening the state government and fighting COVID-19 and economic calamities. PTI
