Ashok Gehlot speaks to PM Modi, writes letter to President over Rajasthan political crisis
Ashok Gehlot had also written a letter to the Prime Minister a few weeks after Sachin Pilot was stripped of his position as deputy chief minister and Rajasthan Congress chief.
Rajasthan chief minister Ashok Gehlot has written to President Ram Nath Kovind and spoken with Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the current political situation in the state.
Gehlot had also written a letter to the Prime Minister on the issue a few days ago.
"The chief minister said that he has spoken to the Prime Minister and apprised him of the current political situation in the state," a Congress leader said, after a meeting at a hotel where MLAs are holed up following rebellion by Sachin Pilot against the Gehlot government.
Pilot has been stripped of his position as deputy chief minister and Rajasthan Congress chief.
The chief minister addressed MLAs at the meeting after a Prarthna Sabha. The meeting was attended by senior Congress leaders also.
