Rajasthan minister Govind Singh Dostara hints he may be dropped from Gehlot's team
In the clip, Dostara is heard telling RBSE chairman DP Jaroli to come and meet him and get all pending files cleared, stressing that he may not be around as education minister for too long.
Ahead of a likely Cabinet expansion in Rajasthan, a purported clip on social media has been doing rounds in which school education minister and state Congress president Govind Singh Dostara is heard that he may have to step down from his ministerial post.
The video seems from the time he visited Ajmer where he had gone on Saturday to declare the results of the Rajasthan Board of Secondary Education exam. In the clip, Dostara is heard telling RBSE chairman DP Jaroli to come and meet him and get all pending files cleared, stressing that he may not be around as an education minister for too long.
"The files will not remain at my office for even an hour. You come on Monday. I will dispose of all your files in a minute. Mein do-paanch din ka mehmaan hoon" (I may be around only for a few days), he said, adding, "Whatever you want to be done, get it done from me."
The video has surfaced just ahead of Congress general secretary Ajay Maken's planned trip to Jaipur on Tuesday, his second visit in recent days. The visit came amid the lobbying for vacant posts in Ashok Gehlot's council of ministers.
After meetings with state Congress leaders, Maken said there is no conflict among them over a cabinet expansion.
