Meanwhile, Pilot’s nameplate has also been removed from Congress headquarter in Jaipur. The grand old party has appointed State Education Minister Govind Singh Dotasara as the new Pradesh Congress Committee chief.
On the other hand, Rajasthan Governor Kalraj Mishra has accepted CM Gehlot’s proposal to remove Sachin Pilot as Deputy CM, and Vishvender Singh and Ramesh Meena as ministers.
Speaking to reporters, after meeting Mishra CM Gehlot accused BJP of hatching conspiracy to topple the Congress government in Rajasthan.
“High command was compelled to take the decision because since a long time 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”, said the Chief Minister.
The disciplinary action against Pilot comes soon after the Congress MLAs passed resolution to issue show-cause notice against all those who skipped the second CLP (Congress legislature party) meeting on Tuesday.
Notably, Congress leaders had called two meetings on Monday and Tuesday and appealed to Pilot to attend these in order to pacify him. However, as he remained absent, disciplinary action was taken against him.
