No-Confidence Motion By BJP Against Gehlot Government
During the month-long tussle between the Gehlot camp and rebel faction of Sachin Pilot, the BJP refrained from demanding even trust vote.
Springing a surprise in Rajasthan, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has decided to move a no-confidence motion against the Ashok Gehlot government after the rebel faction led by Sachin Pilot called a truce. The decision also followed the Rajasthan High Court’s decision to allow the six MLAs, who switched sides from the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) to the Congress, to participate in the assembly session beginning Friday (August 14). During the month-long tussle between the Gehlot camp and rebel faction of Sachin Pilot, the BJP refrained from demanding even trust vote.
The BJP did so saying that it is for the Congress to decide. To repeated queries by journalists, the BJP leaders denied that they were planning a no-confidence motion at a time when the Gehlot government looked vulnerable. However, just ahead of the assembly session, the BJP held a meeting in Jaipur and decided to move a no-confidence motion. The meeting was held by former Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje and Opposition leader in Rajasthan Assembly, Gulab Chand Kataria among others.
