New Delhi: Rajasthan Governor Kalraj Mishra, engaged in a mini-battle with Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot amid latter’s ongoing tussle with his now former deputy Sachin Pilot, on Monday gave permission to the state government to convene an Assembly session-something CM Gehlot has been demanding-adding that it was never his intention to ‘not convene the Assembly’.
The Governor, however, also asked the ruling Congress government to deliberate on three aspects before it calls an Assembly session.
The statement then listed the following three aspects which Governor Mishra urged CM Gehlot to deliebrate upon before convening a session:
(1.) Can the government give 21-day notice to the MLAs as it would be difficult to call them at a short notice during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic?
(2.) Can certain conditions be fulfilled in case a no confidence motion is moved in the Assembly session, like ensuring video recording and live telecast of the trust vote procedure, ensuring that the trust vote is held only through ‘yes’ or ‘no’ buttons etc?
(3.) How will social distancing norms be followed in the Assembly?
