Rajasthan High Court today resumed hearing on the petitions by Sachin Pilot and 18 other rebel Congress legislators against the disqualification notices served on them by state assembly Speaker CP Joshi. The hearing on a writ petition filed by the rebel MLAs will resumed at 10 am.
The high court had on Friday directed that no action be taken against Camp Pilot until Tuesday and had deferred the hearing of their plea challenging the state assembly speaker’s disqualification notices.
The Special Operations Group of the Rajasthan Police is investigating the allegations of horse-trading to bring down the Ashok Gehlot government. The police said they had gone to get a voice sample of Bhanwar Lal Sharma on Friday. The Congress had alleged that the rebel MLA has been caught on tape discussing bribes from the BJP.
Sachin Pilot and 18 rebel MLAs supporting him have been staying at two resorts in Manesar since he openly rebelled against his party and was seen as a threat to the Ashok Gehlot government last week.
