Rajasthan Governor again denies permission to Gehlot government

NEW DELHI, WNS; In a fresh twist, Rajasthan Governor Kalraj Mishra on Wednesday returned the Ashok Gehlot-government’s proposal to convene an Assembly session. It was the third time that the Rajasthan governor returned the Congress government’s proposal demanding an Assembly session.


Rising coronavirus cases cited as a reason

The governor has cited the growing cases of coronavirus in Rajasthan as a reason behind his denial. But, the Gehlot government is adamant on a session from July 31.

Kalraj Mishra has questioned how he can allow the Assembly session when the state has over 40,000 cases of COVID-19. The governor asked how the state government will ensure social distancing in the Assembly.

Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot had earlier met Mishra amid the impasse over calling a session of the state assembly. The meeting, the second in recent days, lasted for about 15 minutes.

Governor wanted 21-day notice

The governor on Monday had agreed to convene Assembly session if the Gehlot government agrees on giving a 21-day notice.

Although Mishra is bound to accept the Rajasthan government’s recommendation for convening an Assembly session, he is allegedly dillydallying in the matter. As a result, no warrant for convening a session clarifying the date and time has been issued by the Raj Bhawan.

“Not convening the Assembly was never the intention,” the governor’s office had said.
