Union minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat on Friday rejected the Congress’ allegation based on two audio clips that he was part of a conspiracy to topple the Ashok Gehlot government in Rajasthan, saying his voice is not in those recordings and that he was ready to face any probe.
The Congress’ attack on Shekhawat and some rebel Congress leaders, including MLA Bhanwarlal Sharma, came after two audio clips surfaced pertaining to an alleged conspiracy to topple the Gehlot government.
“This is not my voice… Let there be an investigation. I am ready to face any probe,” the senior BJP leader from Rajasthan told journalists after the Congress party demanded his arrest.
AICC spokesperson Randeep Surjewala also demanded the arrest of one Sanjay Jain, whom he described as a BJP leader.
Union minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat has been named along with rebel Congress MLA Bhanwar Lal Sharma in an FIR over allegations of a conspiracy against the Congress government in Rajasthan. The Congress on Friday alleged that investigations have revealed rebel MLAs were plotting with the BJP against the Ashok Gehlot government.
