JAISALMER/JAIPUR: Urging PM Narendra Modi once again to restrain BJP from trying to topple an elected government, Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot on Saturday accused Union ministers Dharmendra Pradhan and Piyush Goyal of being among the other big names “secretly” involved in the horse-trading conspiracy allegedly orchestrated by Jal Shakti minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat.
“The PM should step in and stop the tamasha (drama). Shekhawat’s involvement in the conspiracy is now known. He should resign on moral grounds. Many others like Pradhan and Goyal are secretly involved. We know this but we aren’t bothered. All we care for is democracy,” he said.
While targeting BJP, Gehlot sought to convey the message that for all the desert sand kicked up by his public fallout with sacked deputy CM Sachin Pilot, he was still open to welcoming back all the Congress dissidents with “hugs” if the high command wanted so.
“There is no pressure on me. The party has trusted and given me a lot. I have thrice been a Union minister, thrice an AICC general secretary, thrice a PCC chief and thrice a CM. What else would I want?” Gehlot told reporters before flying back to Jaipur from Jaisalmer, where he got his flock to shift on Friday to keep “poachers” at bay.
