Rebel Congress leader Sachin Pilot moved court on Thursday against the disqualification notice issued by the Rajasthan assembly speaker CP Joshi to him and other MLAs supporting him.
The ruling Congress has sought their disqualification from the assembly for ‘anti-party activities’
Despite Pilot categorically ruling out joining the BJP amid the power tussle within the Rajasthan unit, the Congress has alleged that he was colluding with the opposition party to topple the state government.
On Tuesday, the Congress sacked Pilot, credited with leading the party’s successful 2018 assembly election campaign, both as deputy chief minister and also from the Pradesh Congress Committee chief posts. His two loyalists were also sacked as ministers.
