The Congress government in Rajasthan is finally safe . The Ashok Gehlot government which faced rebellion due to former Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot and his MLA’s won the trust vote in the assembly thus ending the political turmoil in the desert state. It was a forgone conclusion when Sachin Pilot and the rebels were back in the party fold.
The motion of confidence moved by the Congress government was passed by voice vote. Replying to the debate on the motion, Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot criticised the Bharatiya Janata Party, accusing it again of trying to bring down his government.
“I will not let the government topple at any cost even if you make all attempts,” he said.
During the debate, the opposition BJP accused the Gehlot camp of blaming it for the infighting within the Congress.
Sachin Pilot, who was sacked as deputy chief minister after he rebelled against Gehlot, intervened in the debate, saying he would fight for the party.
Pilot further stated, the vote of confidence which was brought by the govt has been passed with a very good majority today in the #Rajasthan Assembly. Despite various attempts by the opposition, the result is in favour of government.
