BSP supremo Mayawati
JAIPUR: BSP supremo Mayawati on Saturday demanded imposition of President’s Rule in the state. The BSP leader is angry with Chief Minister Gehlot for poaching on her party’s MLAs. “The governor should take cognizance of the ongoing political deadlock, mutual distrust and governmental instability and recommend imposition of President's Rule in the state so that there is no more deprivation of democracy in the state.”
In another tweet, she said, “Chief Minister Gehlot violated the anti-defection law, inducting BSP MLAs into the Congress and illegally tapped phones. ” Gehot, who was leading a minority government in 2008, had merged six BSP MLAs into the Congress. He made half of them ministers and the remaining were appointed as parliamentary secretaries equivalent to the rank of ministers. This time too, despite the BSP extending support to the Congress, he managed to lure all the six BSP MLAs to join the Congress much to the chagrin of Mayawati.
