Will we wake up only after the horses have bolted from our stables ?
The party is facing its second political crisis within months of a revolt led by Jyotiraditya Scindia in Madhya Pradesh, which ousted the Kamal Nath government in that state.
Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot had called a press meet on Saturday, where he termed the BJP a "shameless party trying to topple the Congress government when it is busy tackling the Covid-19 crisis in the state".
Meanwhile, Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot reached Delhi on Saturday, triggering more speculations about the state government''s fate.
The Deputy Chief Minister of Rajasthan, Sachin Pilot had rebelled against the Congress leadership today. The revolt by the Congress leader might lead to another government collapse, following the Madhya Pradesh government collapse 3 months ago. The deputy chief minister of Rajasthan has the support of 30 MLAs who will be skipping a meeting called by Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot tomorrow. This step by Mr. Pilot might be signaling an exit after Jyotiraditya Scindia. It has been reported that Mr. Pilot has not yet been granted a meeting with the Gandhis. His supporters have signalled that negotiations are not active.
