Rajasthan governor snubs Ashok Gehlot for third time

Rajasthan Governor Kalraj Mishra today rejected Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot’s request for an assembly session for the third time.

The media has reported that the Governor has reportedly returned the proposal to call a session on Friday with the comment that a 21-day notice is necessary and expressing concern about the coronavirus situation.

Soon after the snub, the Chief Minister went to the Governor’s House to meet him for the fourth time since the Congress rebel crisis broke out earlier this month, pushing the party’s government in Rajasthan to the brink, a media report said.

“I am going to meet him to find out what he wants. Whether he seeks a notice of 21 days or 31 days to call assembly session, we will be victorious,” Ashok Gehlot told reporters before going to Raj Bhavan.
