It is believed that the political power play in the state began as the Rajya Sabha elections date is nearing and it will be held on June 19.
As per updates from the EC, three seats of the state are going for the polls — two of them are expected to go to the Congress and one to the BJP.
Joshi made the allegations as the Congress MLAs were taken to a luxury resort in Jaipur for a meeting called by Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot.
He sought action against identified elements for corrupt conduct, attempts for destabilising the government.
“It has come to my knowledge that like Karnataka and Madhya Pradesh, attempts are being made to destabilise the government in Rajasthan,” he said in the complaint.
