“Ajay Maken has been a witness to it. When our MLAs were in the hotel for 34 days, they met Amit Shah, and Dharmendra Pradhan sat with them for an hour.

Asserting that the BJP leaders’ speculations on behalf of their central leadership reveal their anti-democratic mindset, the chief minister expressed faith in the people of Rajasthan, saying they would accept no “unethical” practices and reply to the BJP’s efforts to take political mileage.

“Blinded by the greed for power, the state BJP leaders are doing negative politics by giving statements at the behest of their Central leaders about toppling the government and spreading fear about coronavirus,” said Gehlot in a statement.

“The BJP should know that people of Rajasthan will not accept such unethical acts and will reply to BJP’s measly efforts to take political mileage,” he added.
