July 24, 2020: Rajasthan chief minister Ashok Gehlot on Friday met Governor Kalraj Mishra seeking a session of the assembly on Monday.



Gehlot called on the Governor soon after Rajasthan High Court ordered ‘status quo’ in the case against Congress, on the petition filed by Sachin Pilot and MLAs against disqualification notice.



While Gehlot was meeting the Governor, his supporters raised slogans at the Raj Bhawan.





Earlier, Gehlot said, "We want Assembly session to be convened in order to discuss issues including corona and the political situation... We believe that because of certain pressures, Governor is not giving directions to call the session."



"We want to start the State Assembly session from Monday. Everything will be clear then. I had a telephonic conversation with the Governor and requested him to take a decision on this immediately," Gehlot told reporters.



"We are going to the Governor to request him to not come under pressure (and call Assembly session)... varna fir ho sakta hai ki pure pradesh ki janta agar Raj Bhawan ko gherne ke liye aagai, to hamari zimmedari nahi hogi," warned the CM.



 



Earlier in the day. the Rajasthan High Court directed to maintain ‘status quo’ in the case against Congress, on the petition filed by Sachin Pilot and MLAs against disqualification notice. The HC also made the Centre a party in the case. Additional Solicitor General will represent Centre in the court.
