Rajasthan political crisis LIVE: All eyes on Congress meeting in Jaipur

Even as a political crisis in Rajasthan continues over differences between Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and Deputy CM Sachin Pilot, the Congress has called a meeting of all its Rajasthan legislators today and rushed two central observers – Randeep Singh Surjewala and Ajay Maken – to Jaipur. These are part of the party’s efforts to iron out issues between Pilot and Gehlot, who have differed on a number of issues since the formation of the party’s government in 2018.

Meanwhile, to stem the spread of coronavirus, a 10-day lockdown will be imposed in Pune, Pimpri-Chinchwad and a few other parts of the district starting today. This lockdown will be in force until July 23.
