JAIPUR/NEW DELHI :
Rajasthan Governor Kalraj Mishra said that the State Government should undertake to broadcast live the proceedings of a floor test, if it takes place
RAJASTHAN Governor Kalraj Mishra on Monday agreed to summon a session of the State Assembly provided the Government gives a 21-day notice. The condition is part of three suggestions the Governor has made while returning Ashok Gehlot Cabinet’s recommendation that he should call a session of the Vidhan Sabha. This was the second time that Mishra has returned a Cabinet proposal on convening the Assembly, amid the power tussle in Rajasthan. Mishra also wrote that the State Government should undertake to broadcast live the proceedings of a floor test, if it takes place.
It should also ensure precautions during the proposed Vidhan Sabha sitting against the spread of coronavirus, his note said. The Rajasthan cabinet had sent a revised proposal to the Governor for calling the Assembly session from July 31 on Saturday, a day after he returned the Government’s first proposal. Returning the first proposal, the Governor had sought clarifications on six points, after Congress MLAs held a five-hour dharna on the lawns of the Raj Bhawan pressing for a Vidhan Sabha session.
Gehlot knocks at PM, President doors to resolve Rajasthan crisis: THE ongoing political crisis in Rajasthan seems to be now reaching the doors of the Prime Minister and the President as Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Monday revealed that he has spoken to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, apprising him of the deadlock between the Governor and the State Government. Meanwhile, some MLAs have sent a memorandum to the President requesting his intervention to resolve the crisis in the State. The memorandum informed the President of the alleged horse-trading in Rajasthan to topple the elected democratic Government by the BJP.
