The Rajasthan Congress called off its Monday protest in front of the Raj Bhawan just hours after it accused Governor Kalraj Mishra of resorting to the “worst kind of obstruction of democracy” by raising “superficial and motivated” queries on the Ashok Gehlot government’s demand for convening an Assembly session.
“Tomorrow, Congress workers will protest in front of Raj Bhawans as part of ‘Save Democracy-Save Constitution’ agitation call. But, in Rajasthan we will not do anything like that,” state Congress chief Govind Singh Dotasara said in a tweet.
Meanwhile, amid the political crisis, Governor Mishra on Sunday expressed concern over rising coronavirus cases in the state, and said the number of active cases had tripled since July 1.
Earlier in the day, the Ashok Gehlot government sent a revised proposal to the Governor to call a session of the Assembly on July 31, PTI reported. At the same time, upping its ante against the BJP, Congress launched a nationwide digital campaign, “#SpeakUpForDemocracy”, against the saffron party’s “attempts to violate constitutional and democratic traditions”.
