News Desk: The Ashok Gehlot-led Congress government moved a confidence motion as the special session of the Rajasthan Assembly began today. The govt’s decision to seek trust vote was announced at the Congress Legislature Party meeting chaired by Ashok Gehlot, which was attended by his former deputy Sachin Pilot. Gehlot and Pilot came face to face for the first time after the month-long political crisis which began after Sachin Pilot, along with 18 other MLAs of the party, openly rebelled against the chief minister. Meanwhile, the opposition BJP also said it will also move a no-confidence motion during the session. A BJP MLA said the Rajasthan government has gone into a “state of coma” and therefore the opposition party has to move the no-confidence motion.
“Winning the trust vote in the Assembly is a message to the forces that are trying to destabilise elected governments in the country. Their every tactic failed in Rajasthan. It is the people’s unwavering trust in us and unity of our Congress MLAs that has brought this victory”
