Rajasthan: Governor approves to call assembly from August 14 with three conditions
Amidst the ongoing political crisis in Rajasthan, the governor has approved convening an assembly session from August 14 on three conditions.
Jaipur: Rajasthan Governor Kalraj Mishra on Wednesday approved the convening of the assembly session from 14 August. Amidst the ongoing political crisis in the state, the governor approved the review proposal sent to the Ashok Gehlot government’s cabinet for the fourth time last night. Orders were issued to call the assembly from 14 August.
The Gehlot government had been demanding to call the assembly session from July 31 and earlier three proposals were sent to the governor, which was rejected by the governor.
Importantly, the governor had previously placed a condition based on these three points. One, the assembly session should be called with 21 days clear notice, so that all members of the assembly have a reasonable time and opportunity to attend.
Two, in any case, if action is taken to obtain a vote of confidence, it must be in accordance with the order of the Supreme Court. It should be decided that all members join voluntarily.
Three, in view of the Covid epidemic guidelines, it should also be clarified about how social distances will be maintained during the assembly session.
