Rajasthan Congress cancels Monday protest against Raj Bhawan | India News


JAIPUR: The Rajasthan Congress suspended its protest Monday in front of the Raj Bhawan, hours after the party made a national call for agitation to protect the Constitution and democracy.
The head of the State Congress, Govind Singh Dotasara, said in a tweet: “Tomorrow, congressional workers will protest in front of Raj Bhawans as part of the ‘Save democracy-Save the Constitution’ agitation call. But, in Rajasthan, we won’t do anything like that. ”
Earlier in the day, Congress leader Ajay Maken said in a show of solidarity with the Rajasthan government led by Prime Minister Ashok Gehlot, and for the protection of the Constitution and democracy, workers in Congress will hold protests in front of “Gandhian”. Raj Bhawans across the country on Monday.
The Congressional government in Rajasthan is facing a political crisis after a rebellion by the now sacked deputy chief minister, Sachin Pilot, and 18 other MLAs.
Dotasara said: “We have sent a revised note from the state cabinet to the governor and we hope he will give his approval soon to convene a session of the Assembly.”
The Congressional government says it wants to hold the session so that its majority can be proven.
Governor Kalraj Mishra had asked for clarification on six points of state government on Friday, after congressional MLAs held a five-hour dharna on the lawns of Raj Bhawan pressing for an assembly session.
The dharna was canceled, according to Congress, after Mishra said he would comply with the Constitution and would not act under any pressure.
The governor asked Gehlot to resubmit, with the clarifications, his recommendation to convene a session.
