Pilot following Scindia's footsteps, claims Gehlot govt in minority

Pilot following Scindia's footsteps, claims Gehlot govt in minority

Jaipur, Jul 12 (UNI) Amid the ruckus in the ruling Congress in Rajasthan, Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot on Sunday claimed support of 30 MLAs and said the government, led by Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, is now reduced to minority.

However, Congress leaders on Mr Gehlot's side, debunked the claims made by Mr Pilot and said that he should mention the names of those MLAs, who were supporting him.

Sources said that Mr Pilot would skip the Congress Legislative Party meeting on Monday. Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has started efforts to get the Congress MLAs in his favour, while three independent MLAs have also spoken of supporting Mr Gehlot.

Congress Observors Randeep Surjewala and Avinash Pandey have also reached Jaipur. Mr Pandey denied having knowledge of Mr Pilot's claim of the Gehlot government being in minority.

The Congress MLAs have started arriving at the Chief Minister's residence. On the other hand, many senior Congress leaders are trying to save the government.

Sources in the Congress have claimed that all the MLAs are in support of Mr Gehlot and the government is completely safe. Ajay Maken has also reached Jaipur.
