Rajendra Singh Gudha: Sacked Rajasthan Minister Rajendra Gudha ‘dragged out of assembly’ by Ashok Gehlot MlAs | Jaipur News

JAIPUR: Rajasthan’s assembly had to be adjourned on Monday after the sacking of minister Rajendra Gudha sparked unruly scenes in the House, stirring up a red paper with alleged details of irregular financial transactions.

The former Rajasthan minister and Congress leader also alleged that around 50 people “attacked and expelled” him from the state assembly.
“About 50 people attacked me, punched me, kicked me, and Congress leaders dragged me out of the assembly,” Gudha said.

He further claimed that the speaker of the Rajasthan assembly did not “allow” him to speak.
“There were accusations against me that I am with BJP. I want to know, what is my fault?” Guda said.

Gudha, who was sacked as state minister on Friday after cornering his own Congress government in the assembly, approached speaker CP Joshi’s chair with a “red newspaper” and had a discussion with him.
While Gudha was waving the red colored newspaper, the speaker asked him to go to his room.
After some time, Gudha approached the minister for parliamentary affairs, Shanti Dhariwal, and confronted him as he stood up to speak.
Ugly scenes were witnessed at this time and BJP MLAs also created a riot and stormed the House pit over the issue of “red diary”.
The speaker then adjourned the House session.
Before the Chamber started in the morning, Gudha said he would “reveal” details about the “red newspaper” in the assembly. He said that the diary contained some “secrets”.
Gudha said he will go among the people on Tuesday and reveal the “secrets” of the diary.
Elaborating further, the sacked minister claimed that the paper was “secured” by him during an income tax raid on the residence of RTDC Chairman Dharmendra Rathore.
Gudha said that during the raid, Prime Minister Ashok Gehlot had asked him to go to the Rathore residence to secure the diary, which he did.
He claimed that the diary, allegedly written by Rathore, contained details of the money given to the MLAs and has the names of Ashok Gehlot and his son Vaibhav Gehlot.
Opposition leader Rajendra Rathore told reporters that what happened in the House was shameful.
“Gudha wanted to give a statement and he should have been allowed to,” he said.
Rajendra Rathore had raised the issue of the red diary and it created quite a stir during Zero Hour. It was when Gudha entered the House and went straight to the well and approached the speaker’s chair.
Meanwhile, Union Minister and BJP leader Gajendra Singh Shekhawat expressed curiosity and concern at Gudha’s mention of a ‘red paper’.
Shekhawat said: “I want to ask Ashok Gehlot, what is this ‘red paper’? Why is there concern in the government about it?”
Gudha was not present in the Chamber during Question Time.
