Jaipur: Congress MLAs spent Monday night in a resort near Jaipur after a legislature party meeting, where they expressed support for Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, with Deputy CM Sachin Pilot’s rebellion threatening the government.

A resolution adopted at the Congress Legislature Party meeting urged strong disciplinary action against any party office-bearer or CLP member who does anything to weaken the government or the party.

Gehlot flashed the victory sign along with Congress MLAs who attended his meeting in Jaipur, asserting that his government is safe.

The Congress has called another meeting of its MLAs today and invited rebel Sachin Pilot who remained cold to the overtures.

Meanwhile, the Sachin Pilot camp released a video of loyalists relaxing at a hotel in Manesar. The 10-second video was shared late at night on Pilot’s official WhatsApp group.

In the video, 15-18 MLAs of the Sachin Pilot camp could be seen lounging around in the garden of the hotel, an indication that the Deputy CM is still estranged from the Congress.
