Appointment of the CM's advisors is unconstitutional, BJP slams Gehlot

JAIPUR: The Rajasthan Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has expressed strong opposition to Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot's appointment of six media consultants, calling it unconstitutional.

Ashok Gehlot appointed six MLAs as advisors on Monday, November 22. Dr Jitendra Singh, Dr Rajkumar Sharma, Danish Abrar, and three Independents, Sanyam Lodha, Babulal Nagar, and Ramkesh Meena, are the members of parliament.

However, Rajendra Rathore, the BJP's deputy leader in the opposition, claims that these positions are constitutional and has written to Rajasthan Governor Kalraj Mishra to raise concerns about the nominations.

In fact, Rathore has threatened to take the case to court. According to him, the Chief minister just distributed posts to appease the disgruntled faction. "Appointing advisors on post for profit without adopting a law in the Assembly is unconstitutional, and such appointments may never be made," he continued, citing Article 191A of the Indian Constitution. Rathore claimed that the Congress has been beset by infighting since taking power in Rajasthan, and that the party is now attempting to appease disgruntled legislators by appointing parliamentary secretaries and advisers above the constitutional limit.
