In a dramatic turn of events happening in Rajasthan for the past few days that involved Sachin Pilot, Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, and assembly Speaker CP Joshi – Sachin Pilot scored a win in the fight.
Going back, the Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot accused Sachin Pilot of conspiring with the BJP in a bid to topple the Congress government in Rajasthan and sacked him last week. Following this, Speaker CP Joshi served 18 rebel MLAs and Sachin Pilot, when they skipped two meetings of Congress MLAs. As the matter landed in the high court Sachin Pilot and the MLA’s argued that they never intended to quit the party, but they want a change in the leadership.
The Rajasthan High Court then barred Joshi from conducting disqualification proceedings which prompted Joshi along with Kapil Sibal as his counsel to approach the supreme court for a stay on the high court’s ruling.
However, the Supreme court rejected to issue the stay order against the proceedings of the Rajasthan High Court asking why Speaker-a neutral person, should even approach court!! Justice AK Mishra, one of the three judges hearing the case also said: “The voice of dissent in a democracy cannot be suppressed like this' while directing both sides to submit concise written submissions.
