Rajasthan BJP does not have the number, why is it bringing no-confidence motion against Gehlot government?
The crisis over the Ashok Gehlot government was averted after Sachin Pilot’s resentment in Rajasthan was eased. In such a situation, the trust vote of the Gehlot government was certain to be sealed in the assembly session starting on August 14, but at the last moment, the BJP has also surprised everyone by taking bets. However, let us tell you that the BJP does not have a number in the Rajasthan Legislative Assembly. Despite this, the party has announced on Thursday that it will bring a no-confidence motion against the Congress government of the state.
Rajasthan BJP President Satish Poonia has said that the way in which he has tried, he may propose a vote of confidence but we are also fully ready to bring a motion of no confidence. This government may count its head tomorrow, but I think public opinion has fallen in the eyes of the public.
Let us understand how the arithmetic of data can be done in Rajasthan Legislative Assembly:
– Rajasthan Assembly has a total of 200 seats and the support of 101 MLAs is needed for a majority.

After the displeasure of Sachin Pilot, 19 MLAs of his camp have also joined Congress. Due to this, the party now has the support of 107 MLAs. Not only this, Gehlot has also withdrawn the suspension of two MLAs.
– It is believed that Master Bhanwarlal Meghwal will not be able to reach the house due to ill health. In such a situation, the Congress will have the support of 106 MLAs of its party.
– Congress party has 10 independents, two from Bharatiya Tribal Party, BTP, one CPI (M) MLA with Congress.
Subhash Garg, an MLA of the National Lok Dal, is also with the Congress. In this case, the number of votes of Congress is 121. At the same time, three independent MLAs of Pilot camp also vote for Congress, then Congress will have the support of 124 MLAs.
Here, the BJP has 76 votes, including the support of 3 MLAs of the National Democratic Party and an Independent. In such a situation, the no confidence motion of the BJP is certain to be dropped.
Let us tell you that six MLAs of the Bahujan Samaj Party, which merged with the Congress, will be able to vote during the trust vote in the Rajasthan Legislative Assembly starting tomorrow. The Supreme Court, hearing a temporary stay petition against the merger of BSP MLAs into Congress, has denied this.
The court has dropped this decision on the single bench of Rajasthan, which is hearing the case. In the petition, the Supreme Court was told that the assembly session is going to begin, so they should take immediate action on this matter. But, during the hearing today, a three-judge bench said, “We will not interfere in this case as the matter is already being heard in the High Court.”
