With the crucial Congress Legislature Party meeting scheduled to take place at 10.30 am in Jaipur, the party has made it clear that any indiscipline would not be tolerated.

The CLP meeting will be attended by All India Congress Committee observers Ajay Maken and Randeep Surjewala and AICC in-charge for Rajasthan Avinash Pandey.

The party has issued a whip to mandate the presence of all the party's MLAs during Monday morning meeting.

Pandey said that "Whip has been issued to give a message to all MLAs to be present and if anybody fails to come strict disciplinary action will be taken against any legislator who doesn't attend the meeting."

On the issue of deputy chief minister Sachin Pilot reportedly being in the national capital he said, "I have tried to speak to him and have sent messages to him also but he has not replied. Pilot is not above the rest. He is like other MLAs and will also have to face action. Party is ready to listen to Pilot but within the frame of discipline."

 

"No indiscipline will be tolerated but I am hopeful that he will turn up for the meeting," he added.

Pande said that 109 MLAs have signed a letter of support to the chief minister.

"As many as 109 MLAs have signed the letter to express full confidence in the Congress government led by Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and in the leadership of Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi. Some other MLAs have spoken to the chief minister over the phone and they will also sign the letter," he told reporters at the CM's residence in Jaipur in the wee hours.

In the 200-member Rajasthan assembly, the Congress has 107 MLAs and the BJP 72.

The Congress also has the support of 10 out of 13 independents, and other party MLAs like Rashtriya Lok Dal (1), which is its ally.

The Congress also considers Bhartiya Tribal Party (2) and Communist Party of India-Marxist (2) MLAs as their supporters.
