Jaipur: Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Thursday said that his government will prove its majority amid the political crisis in the state.
“The majority is with us, all Congress MLAs are united,” Gehlot said. Adding that even without the rebel legislators, his government will prove its majority.
Gehlot’s remark came a day before the Rajasthan’s High Court’s verdict on the petition of 19 rebel MLAs, challenging the disqualification notices served to them.
“They [the rebel MLAs] are calling us and saying that they are unable to come out,” he added. “I hope that some of them, when they come out, will vote with us.”
On Thursday, the Supreme Court rejected Rajasthan Assembly Speaker CP Joshi’s petition against the High Court’s order to defer action on the disqualification notices sent to the 19 rebel legislators. The top court allowed the Rajasthan High Court to announce its verdict on the petition of the MLAs on July 24.
