Given the reasons, I think that he should take responsibility for Vaibhav’s defeat. There will be a post-mortem of the party’s defeat in Jodhpur seat to find out why we could not win.”

Jodhpur has been Ashok Gehlot‘s stronghold for several years and he was elected five times from the Lok Sabha seat. He had reportedly taken part in over 130 rallies and road shows, 93 of them in Jodhpur alone. His son, however, lost to the BJP, which took 24 of the 25 seats in the state, with one seat going to its ally. In his maiden election, Vaibhav Gehlot lost to Union minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat by a margin of 2,74,440 votes.

After the poll debacle, Congress president Rahul Gandhi had also reportedly criticised Gehlot for putting his son above the party.

Later on Tuesday, Gehlot attended an iftar party hosted by Pilot at the headquarters of the Congress’s state unit in Jaipur.

Before the iftar began, Pilot spent some time with Gehlot and Ministers Raghu Sharma, Govind Singh Dotasara, Pratap Singh besides other leaders in his chamber at the party office.

Both Gehlot and Pilot sat together with other leaders at the iftar attended by a large number of people from the Muslim community, MLAs and the party’s office-bearers and members.

Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala rejected the ‘misleading news of any differences between Sachin Pilot and Ashok Gehlot’.

Mamata Banerjee slams BJP over Mahua Moitra expulsion from Lok Sabha says betrayal of  parliamentary democracy

The West Bengal CM and Trinamool Congress boss said she felt sad to see the attitude of the BJP. She said the BJP did not allow Mahua Moitra to explain her stand.



West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday slammed the BJP over Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra’s expulsion from the Lok Sabha after a debate on the cash-for-query allegations. She said the move was unacceptable and betrayed India’s parliamentary democracy.

Talking to the media, Banerjee said she felt sad to see the attitude of the BJP. She questioned how the BJP can betray parliamentary democracy. She said the BJP did not even allow Mahua to explain her stand in the House. She added full injustice had been done to the expelled MP.

Banerjee said the Trinamool Congress stands in full support of Moitra. She said the BJP could not defeat the Trinamool in elections, so they have resorted to vendetta politics. She said Moitra will return to Parliament with a bigger mandate. Banerjee said the BJP thought it can do whatever it wants as they have a brute majority. She added that a day will come when the BJP will not be in power.

After her expulsion from the Lok Sabha, Moitra told reporters outside Parliament that said will fight it out over the next 30 years inside and outside Parliament, inside the gutter and on the streets. She accused the BJP of hating Muslims and women. She claimed Adani was buying all of India’s ports and airports. She said Adani shareholders are foreign investors and the Home Ministry was giving them clearance to buy India’s infrastructure.

Reacting to her expulsion, Moitra said there was no evidence of any cash, any gifts anywhere. She said she had been expelled for sharing her Lok Sabha portal login. She said there are no rules governing the sharing of logins. She said tomorrow the CBI will be sent to her house and she is going to be harassed for the next six months.

Many Opposition parties have supported Moitra over the way she was expelled without getting a chance to put forth her stand.

Watch: Giriraj Singh says Mamata Banerjee doing thumka at film festival is not appropriate, Lok Sabha MP Mahua Moitra reacts

The official handle of Trinamool Congress shared the video in which Giriraj said thumka and also swung his body from side to side. The TMC said this video evidence shows Singh not just uttering the word thumka twice but also making gestures that leave no room for misinterpretation.



BJP MP Giriraj Singh has stirred a controversy on Wednesday after he criticized West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee’s participation in the Kolkata International Film Festival where she was seen shaking a leg with Bollywood actor Salman Khan. In video circulating on social media Giriraj Singh was seen saying that Mamata Banerjee doing thumka at the film festival is not appropriate.

Lok Sabha MP strongly protested the comment. Giriraj Singh clarified later that he used the word jashn and not thumka and he was not wrong in criticizing Mamata Banerjee for celebrating film festival when West Bengal is riddled with corruption. Singh added the TMC leaders are exaggerating my words.

The official handle of Trinamool Congress shared the video in which Giriraj said thumka and also swung his body from side to side. The TMC said this video evidence shows Singh not just uttering the word thumka twice but also making gestures that leave no room for misinterpretation. The party said Singh’s denial is another textbook example of BJP strategy to engage in shameful conduct  and then brazenly defend it.

The party added Union Minister Giriraj Singh bjp now joins the list of leaders who made degrading comments about Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. The TMC said it is evident the BJP leaders find it incredibily hard to fathom a woman in power challenging their authority. The party said the BJP’s archaic mindset is steeped in gender biases is blatantly on display.

Lok Sabha MP Mahua Moitra said Giriraj Singh’s words against the only woman chief minister of India is shocking. She told Giriraj Singh that the reason they danced in Bengal is because they don’t have to put up with the likes of him. She said the misogyny and patriarchy that is practiced by the BJP every single day tell a different story altogether.
