Notably, in unprecedented scenes on Friday evening, the Chief Minister, along with at least 100 MLAs, had protested at the Governor’s official residence-the Raj Bhawan. The protest only came to and around five hours later.

Earlier in the day, CM Gehlot had alleged that the Governor was not calling an Assembly session as he was ‘under pressure from the top’. The Chief Minister wants that an Assembly session be called so that he can prove his majority there; he has claimed the support of 102 MLAs, which is one more than the majority mark of 101 in the 200-seat Rajasthan Assembly.

Governor Mishra, on the other hand, said that he was seeking legal opinion on the issue as the Supreme Court is scheduled to hear the case on Monday. Also, as per reports, he mentioned the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic as a reason why an Assembly session cannot be called.

Later, in a letter to Gehlot, he also slammed the Chief Minister for his protest, remarking that he and his MLAs had ‘started a wrong precedent’.
