August 14, 2020: The Congress government of Ashok Gehlot scored an expected win today in a trust vote in the Rajasthan assembly that capped weeks of turmoil over a rebel crisis that had pushed it to the verge of collapse.





The vote took place a day after Ashok Gehlot's patch-up with sacked deputy Sachin Pilot, who ended his rebellion against the Chief Minister earlier this week.





Mr Gehlot, having established his majority in the assembly, has won a six-month reprieve from any vote challenging his government.





Taking to Twitter Mr Gehlot tweeted, "Winning the trust vote in the assembly is a message to the forces that are trying to destabilize elected governments in the country. Their every tactic failed in Rajasthan. It is the people's unwavering trust in us and unity of our Congress MLAs that has brought this victory”.
