Rajasthan governor’s refusal to act on the Cabinet’s advice to convene the assembly session violates Constitutional scheme and Supreme Court rulings. It’s mala fide and deplorable. Raj Bhawans during the Narendra Modi regime increasingly resemble those during the Indira Gandhi government. Governors must stop acting like the Centre’s political agents.

  1. No one cares what congress dalals in the media think of Rajasthan Governer. The governer ia doing hia job and that job is not to dance to the tunes of a discredited congress and a spineless , corrupt media. Fact is why has Gehlot to ahout from rooftops that he has a majority in the assembly. No one has asked for the floor test, certainly not the BJP, then why this billigerence. Is he afraid that his MLAs might defect ? Is he not sure of his flock ? When in Karnatak, where BJP was in opposition and was asking for a floor test, the speaker denied it the oportunity and the BJP had to move court and got the floor test after a month in which the BJP won. That means the congress-JDU there did not have the strength and hence the speaker dilly dallied to deny the BJP a shot at power amd tried to avoid floor test. But in Rajasthan who has asked for floor test ? No one. So why is Gehlot nervous ? Why is he jittery ? And why are congress loudspeakers in the media not raising this question and instead blaming the governer ? Shem on such partisan journalism.

  2. When gehlot is convinced about his majority, why should he make such a mess of things, including dharnas and dancing like a drunkard in trance? He can take up issues systematically and win the vote of confidence coolly. But his hurry shows he is hiding something and do things in a huff. After all, gehlot is supposed to be a senior leader with a glorious past and balanced head. He need not spoil his name in this way with all these street plays to please someone in delhi.

  3. Smt Indira Gandhi has left behind a rich vein of pure gold for successor governments to mine. However, if there is a desire to uphold the core values and principles of the Constitution, the precedents would have to be found during the tenure of her father.

  4. The Governor’s action / inaction is an acknowledgement / admission that CM Ashok Gehlot enjoys the confidence of the Vidhan Sabha. He is winning the perception battle, big time.
