Jaipur, July 30
Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Thursday claimed that the “rates of horse-trading” within the state had elevated after it was introduced that the Assembly session would start from August 14.
“After the assembly session was announced last night, the rates of horse-trading have increased. Earlier, the first instalment was of Rs 10 crore and second was of Rs 15 crore. Now it has become unlimited and all know who is doing horse-trading,” Gehlot advised reporters.
Targeting Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati for her statements in opposition to him, Gehlot accused the previous Uttar Pradesh chief minister of appearing on the behest of the BJP.
Her complaining was not justified, Gehlot mentioned.
The impasse over convening the Rajasthan Assembly ended on Wednesday with Governor Kalraj Mishra agreeing to name a session from August 14.
The Raj Bhawan announcement got here a few hours after the Ashok Gehlot Cabinet despatched a fourth proposal to the Governor for summoning the Rajasthan Assembly, mentioning August 14 as the brand new date. PTI
