Jaipur: In another twist of events, Governor Kalraj Mishra has allowed Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot to convene the Assembly session from August 14. Governor’s nod came just after the Gehlot-led Congress government sent another proposal to hold the Assembly session. The Governor, however, has directed that all necessary arrangements for the prevention of COVID-19 spread during the session should be made.
Following the Governor’s nod, Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot will host the Congress Legislative Party (CLP) meeting today. According to reports, Congress state president Govind Singh Dotasara and spokersperson Randeep Surjewala will also attend the meeting.
