Jaipur / New Delhi:
Bahujan Samaj Party has issued a whip to all its six MLAs in Rajasthan to vote against the Congress if a floor test is done to check the strength of the Ashok Gehlot government. Mr. Gehlot is struggling to save his government after Sachin Pilot and the legislators rebel against him.
All the six Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) MLAs were merged with the Congress, which may technically lead to conflict according to this definition, with no BSP MLAs in the Rajasthan Legislative Assembly.
The party led by former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati had approached the Election Commission during the Rajya Sabha election to consider these six MLAs as BSP MLAs, but the Election Commission refused to intervene as it is the speaker’s domain. .
Late on Sunday, the BSP issued a whip to R Gudha, Lakhan Singh, Deep Chand, JS Awana, Sandeep Kumar and Wajib Ali.
“Notices have been issued to the six MLAs separately as well as collectively, stating that since the BSP is a national party, there can be no merger of the six MLAs at the state level, unless the BSP has The merger does not happen. ” National level. If they violate it, they will be disqualified, ”BSP national general secretary Satish Chandra Mishra told news agency ANI.
In another motion by Governor Kalraj Mishra to convene assembly session on 31 July, Mr. Gehlot said that the agenda is a coronavirus epidemic. The Governor turned down the first motion, saying that it did not mention the date or reason for the assembly session.
Winning the trust vote, the Ashok Gehlot government will get relief for the next six months. But if the trust vote is now held, when the 19 rebels are to be disqualified, the rebels can vote against their own party. Even if they are disqualified later, their vote will still be counted.
The BJP seems to have done the math. It has 76 MLAs in the 200-member Rajasthan Legislative Assembly and the party will need the support of at least 25 more MLAs to form the government. But the BJP sees an additional 10 MLAs as a buffer.
Today, the Supreme Court is expected to examine the issue of powers of assembly speakers and whether there is any merit in the decisions of the courts.
Sources have said that the Congress is divided on how to pursue the case in the Supreme Court. One section wants the party to get its petition out of court and handle the case politically.
