Udaipur: Over 80 Rajasthan Congress MLAs have resigned from Congress in fresh crisis. They have submitted their resignation letters to Assembly Speaker, CP Joshi. MLA Shobha Rani Kushwaha, was also at CP Joshi’s residence. She was expelled from the BJP for cross-voting in favour of the Congress in this year’s Rajya Sabha elections.

The Gehlot Team MLAs took a stand against Congress Leader Sachin Pilot and his candidature to be the next chief minister if Ashok Gehlot is elected the Congress chief.
Team Gehlot wants the next CM to be someone who had supported the government during the open rebellion by Pilot in 2020.
Rajasthan Minister Pratap Singh Khachariyawas said that they will discuss about who will be the next CM after Gehlot wins. “Of the 102 MLAs, anybody can become the chief minister. Congress president Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and Ashok Gehlot will decide it,” Rajasthan Minister Pratap Singh Khachariyawas said.
“MLAs consider Ashok Gehlot as its leader. If we can’t say what we want to say to our leader, then who will we say it to? Sachin Pilot is the number one contender. But if the Ashok Gehlot camp puts up a fight, assembly Speaker CP Joshi and the current Rajasthan Congress chief, Govind Singh Dotasra, could be in contention,” he added.
He further said that all the party MLAs are angry and resigning and they will speak with party president about it.
According to India Today sources in the Congress said senior party leader and MP KC Venugopal spoke to Ashok Gehlot on call in regards with resolving the troubleshoot. “Mere bass mein kuch nahi hain (nothing is in my hands),” Gehlot reportedly told the MP, the sources said.

“We have left no stone unturned in maintaining the alliance with respect to Rajasthan, nor will there be any changes in it today. If any new equation is formed after the election of the Congress president, then the decision about the post of chief minister in the state will also have to be taken by the Congress,” tweeted Rashtriya Lok Dal’s Jayant Singh. The RLD is in alliance with the Congress in the state.
