New Delhi: The next session of the Rajasthan Legislative Assembly could be held on July 22, as per the media reports. Also, this will depend on the Rajasthan High Court's decision over the plea filed by Mr.Pilot which is expected by Tuesday evening
Last night, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Saturday met Governor Kalraj Mishra which is termed as the courtesy visit, hours after the two MLAs of the regional party has announced that they will back the administration, earlier both the MLAs of the regional party had withdrawn support from the Congress government.
"Both MLAs of the Bharatiya Tribal Party (BTP) announced their support to the government after meeting their state executive officials and discussing with their demands," Mr. Gehlot tweeted in Hindi.
Mr. Gehlot was seen receiving a letter of support from the MLA in the photos shared by his office.
A bench of the Rajasthan High Court comprising Chief Justice Indrajit Mohanti and Justice Prakash Gupta is scheduled to resume hearing on the plea filed by the Tonk MLA Sachin Pilot and other 18 rebel MLAs against the disqualification notice served to them by the speaker CP Joshi for failing to attend two Congress legislative Party meet.
In this political drama, the two MLAs had become an interesting sidelight over the Sachin Pilot's revolt this week they posted a video on social media, which went viral, alleging that they were being held against their wishes at the hotels.
Losing the two MLAs would be brought down the numbers for the Chief Minister as the Congress struggled to keep its flock protected from Pilot's rebel camp.
Mr. Pilot has claimed that he has 30 MLAs who are willing to walk with him if needed from the government in Rajasthan. But Mr. Gehlot says that he has 109 MLAs loyal to him pushing him just over the 101 mark he needs to remain CM.
The division bench of the Rajasthan High Court on Friday began gearing of the petition filed by the former deputy CM Sachin Pilot and 18 rebel MLAs against the disqualification notice issued to them, directed the state Assembly Speaker not to take any action before Tuesday 5.30 pm.
