New Delhi: The ongoing political crisis in Rajasthan took a dramatic turn on Saturday after Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said that he is open to welcoming back the Congress rebels led by his former deputy Sachin Pilot. “Those who were engaged in the conspiracy to destabilise the government in Rajasthan confess to the party high command and are forgiven, I would also embrace them”, said Gehlot, while speaking to media in Jaisalmer.
He also asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to intervene and stop the ‘tamasha’, referring to the alleged horse trading show being run in the state. “Prime Minister should stop the tamasha going on in Rajasthan. The rate for horse-trading has increased here. What tamasha is this?,” he asked.
The Rajasthan Chief Minister also lambasted Union Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat and asked him to step down from his post on moral grounds as his name has appeared in the Sanjeevani Cooperative Society embezzlement case.
