WITH Rajasthan chief minister Ashok Gehlot set to resign from his post to file his nominations for the Congress Presidential Elections, a high political drama started in Rajasthan with several MLAs threatening to quit the party and demanding the continuation of Gehlot as CM. As the impasse prevails in Rajasthan, the BJP took a potshot at the Congress and said that the current situation in the state calls for a President's Rule.

The saffron party also called the ruling Congress the "government of camps", with the BJP state chief tweeting "God save Rajasthan". "The current political situation in Rajasthan is pointing towards President's rule. Chief Minister @ashokgehlot51, why are you doing drama? Why is there a delay after the cabinet has resigned? You too should resign,” Deputy Leader of Opposition Rajendra Rathore commented on Twitter.

"This 'naatak' shouldn't happen, enough with this drama. Sometimes they stay in hotels for days, the other times the leaders who run the govt go into another party, nothing can be more unfortunate," Rathore further said.

BJP state president Satish Poonia said the trends for 2023 assembly elections have started showing in the state. "There is not so much uncertainty in today's India-Australia cricket match as there is about the leaders in the Congress party of Rajasthan. The meetings of MLAs are going on separately, the political hypocrisy of resignations is going on separately. What rule will they enforce? Where will they take Rajasthan, God save Rajasthan," he said.

Union minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat said the government is all set to work from a hotel. "The government of camps. Ready to go back to the camp again!!" he tweeted.

Meanwhile, Union Minister Anurag Thakur also attacked the Congress and said that they don't want to serve the public. "I think less entertainment happened in 'Bharat Jodo', now it has started in Rajasthan. This fight of Congress shows that they just want to enjoy the power, don't want to serve the public. Congress has neither direction nor a leader," he said.

High drama unfolded in Rajasthan Sunday evening as a group of Congress MLAs loyal to Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot reached the assembly speaker's residence to submit their resignation ahead of a legislature party meeting which was called to decide on his successor.

The development suggested a worsening power struggle between the chief minister and Sachin Pilot who was tipped to be Gehlot's replacement after he declared his candidature for the Congress president's post.
