The Ashok Gehlot-led Congress government won a trust vote in the Rajasthan assembly today. The special session of the Rajasthan Assembly began today, with the Congress government led by Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot moving a confidence motion. 

The vote took place a day after Ashok Gehlot's patch-up with sacked deputy Sachin Pilot, who ended his rebellion against the Chief Minister earlier this week. Mr Gehlot had planned a trust vote for days, even when he was reduced to a wafer-thin majority of 102 following revolt of Sachin Pilot. By winning the vote he has won a six-month reprieve.

A discussion occurred in the Rajasthan gathering on the Congress' movement for a trust vote. Law and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Shanti Kumar Dhariwal, who postponed the proposition for a trust vote, began his discourse blaming the BJP for attempting to bring down the Ashok Gehlot government. "Ashok Gehlot taught the BJP a lesson in Rajasthan. We did not allow a Goa or Madhya Pradesh to happen here," he said after tabling the motion for a trust vote. He also quipped, without taking names, that "modus operandi" was now "Modi's operandi".
