An MP of the ally party of the Bharatiya Janata Party has come out and revealed that former Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje is the one who is helping the Ashok Gehlot to stay in power.
Hanuman Beniwal, the MP from the Rashtriya Loktantrik Party has alleged that it was in fact the BJP leader Vasundhara Raje who is helping Ashok Gehlot in the political crisis of the Congress party. Ever since the crisis has played out, Vasundhara Raje has not issued a statement and hasn’t been seen in public space too. The MP said,
“Former CM Vasundhara Raje is trying her best to help the minority Congress government of Ashok Gehlot. She has even called up several congress legislators to enable this.”
In another tweet, the MP alleged that Raje has called up every MLA in Sikar and Nagaur from the Jat community and has asked them to keep away from Pilot. He also claimed that he has proof to back it up.
Rahul Gandhi Intervenes
Rumor has it that former Congress president Rahul Gandhi has intervened in the Rajasthan political crisis and has made an attempt to reconnect former Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot and Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot.
The political crisis in the state of Rajasthan continues to stay grim. Even as Ashok Gehlot has sidelines Sachin Pilot, he still needs to secure his government. The Rajasthan government, when it was elected, was termed as the comeback victory of the Congress party. Many expected Pilot to assume the post of Chief Minister but was made the deputy instead. A year later, Sachin Pilot has been sacked by the party from the post.
Rahul Gandhi has reportedly asked his Congress workers to let Pilot know that the door of the part is always open for him to return to his position. During a meeting with the National Students Union of India, Gandhi is believed to have said,
“If anybody wants to leave the party, they will. It opens the door for young leaders like you.”
