He went on to allege that the BJP has arranged the resort and they are managing everything. “The same team which worked in Madhya Pradesh is at work in Rajasthan,” Gehlot said.
Talking about the removal of Pilot from state cabinet, Gehlot said that the party high command was compelled to take the decision because since a long time the BJP was conspiring and resorting to horse-trading. “We knew it was a big conspiracy; now some of our friends went astray because of it and went to Delhi,” Gehlot added.
The Rajasthan Chief Minister went on to say that the attitude was similar to the saying ‘aa bail mujhe maar’ given the tweets and statements of last few months. He was indirectly referring to Pilot’s tweets and statements.
Saying that he has been impartial to all MLAs, he said said no one is happy about the decisions and all tried to reach out but hobnobbing with BJP has taken place.
Apart from removing Pilot, the party also removed his loyalists Vishvendra Singh and Ramesh Meena from the state cabinet.
Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot met Governor Kalraj Mishra immediately after the CLP meeting and apprised him about all the latest developments.
