Rajasthan political crisis: All Updates

IBNS | @indiablooms | 26 Sep 2022, 01:10 pm

The Rajasthan Congress once again fell into a crisis after over 90 of its MLAs loyal to Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot threatened to quit. The rebel MLAs demand either Gehlot, who is set to contest the Congress presidential elections, or his pick to be the Chief Minister of the state. Reports claimed the Congress top brass want former Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot to replace Gehlot if the latter is elected to the Congress chief's post.
