RAJASTHAN Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Wednesday met Governor Kalraj Mishra after he returned for the third time the State Government’s proposal to convene an Assembly session. “The love letter has already come. Now, I am only going to have tea with him,” Gehlot told party workers at the State Congress office before heading for the Raj Bhawan.
The State Cabinet had resent a proposal to the Governor on Monday, sticking to the July 31 date for holding a session and refusing to mention that it planned to hold a trust vote. While returning the earlier version of the proposal the Governor had suggested that the session can be called at short notice if the Government says seeking a confidence vote is on the agenda.
“You have sent the letter a third time. What do you want? Tell us, so that we work in that manner,” Gehlot said in his address at the Pradesh Congress Committee office, where Govind Singh Dotasara formally took over as the new chief of the State unit. Call assembly session from Aug 14: Rajasthan Cabinet: The Ashok Gehlot Cabinet on Wednesday cleared another proposal to be sent to the Governor for summoning the assembly, saying the session should begin on August 14. Government sources argued that this meets the 21-day notice requirement on which Governor Kalraj Mishra was insisting.
