Rajasthan Political Crisis LIVE Updates: Sachin Pilot and his camp of dissident MLAs may not attend the Assembly Session, CLP meetings until FIRs remain pending against them, sources said. They still maintain that they are not joining BJP, adding that it would be the easiest thing to do, but they were instead fighting for respect, sources said, adding that there has been no decision yet on whether the camp will attend the assembly session or not, and will be done so after consultation with MLAs.

Congress MLAs loyal to Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot shifted from a Jaipur resort to Jaisalmer on Friday, prepared to spend at least the next fortnight holed up in a hotel there. Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot boarded one of the five chartered flights to the city, 550 kms away from the state capital by road. But he indicated he will be back. He told reporters at the airport there will be no compromise with the government’s work as he and the ministers will remain in Jaipur. In Delhi, the Congress approached the Supreme Court against the Rajasthan High Court order restraining the assembly Speaker from acting on the disqualification notices issued to Sachin Pilot and 18 other dissident MLAs.

Here are the LIVE Updates:

Avinash Pande, Surjewala Also in Jaisalmer: AICC general secretary Avinash Pande and spokesperson Randeep Surjewala also travelled to Jaisalmer with the MLAs. The party claimed about 100 people including MLAs from the Congress, allies and independents boarded the flights. The MLAs had remained confined to Fairmont hotel on the Delhi-Jaipur highway since July 13, as the infighting between the Gehlot and the Sachin Pilot factions in the Congress escalated.

‘Has Modi Ever Listened to Atal Ji?’: Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala, in a dig at the BJP government, shared a clip of Atal Bihari Vajpayee saying in an old interview how he would never engage in political horse trading. Congress has been alleging that the BJP government has been trying to topple the Rajasthan government, through horse trading of MLAs, and CM Ashok Gehlot said recently that ever since the okaying of the Assembly Session by Governor Kalraj Mishra, the “rates offered had gone up”.

‘Why Are they Camping if United?’ BJP: BJP Rajasthan president Satish Poonia on Friday questioned why Congress MLAs were camping in Jaisalmer if they were united, hours after the ruling party in the state shifted its legislators to the border district from here fearing “horse-trading”.

All are united, there is no danger, there is democracy. If everything is fine then why is fortification required and who is for sale? Make their names public. Disbelief in the fortification too! After Jaisalmer from Jaipur, Pakistan is ahead.

SOG to Move HC in Audio Tape Case: The Special Operations Group of the Rajasthan Police will move the High Court to take the voice sample of Sanjay Jain arrested after being allegedly caught on audio tapes discussing the “plot” to topple the state government.
