Gehlot vs Pilot over Rajasthan crown: Fresh crisis for Congress as 92 MLAs resign


In a fresh crisis for Congress in Rajasthan, around 92 MLAs from CM Ashok Gehlot’s camp have tendered their resignations to the assembly Speaker, CP Joshi. The development comes amid talks of a change of guard in the state after CM Gehlot announced his interest to become Congress President. The Sachin Pilot versus Ashok Gehlot battle seems to be on again. According to sources, the MLA, who resigned, could be moved to hotels.

The chaos erupted ahead of a crucial CLP meeting in Jaipur. Congress observers Mallikarjun Kharge and Ajay Maken, along with Gehlot, reached the chief minister’s residence where the Congress Legislature Party meeting was to be held. Pilot reached there separately. About 25 legislators were present there, sources said.
