Rajasthan mlaJaipur : The Congress on Friday removed two of its MLAs from its primary membership for allegedly being involved in the conspiracy to topple the Ashok Gehlot government.

The party also demanded an FIR against BJP leader and Union minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat for allegedly bribing the legislators in Rajasthan.

The Rajasthan High Court is slated to hear a petition filed by former deputy chief minister Sachin Pilot and 18 MLAs against the disqualification notices issued to them by Assembly Speaker C P Joshi. The notices were served after the ruling party complained to the Speaker that the MLAs had defied a party whip to attend two Congress Legislature Party meetings, on Monday and Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Pilot sprang a surprise Thursday by reaching out to senior party leader and former Union minister P Chidambaram even as he approached the Rajasthan High Court to challenge the disqualification proceedings initiated against him and 18 other MLAs. Pilot spoke to Chidambaram, a permanent invitee to the Congress Working Committee, over phone in a reach-out that came days after the Congress stripped him of the posts of Deputy Chief Minister and president of the Rajasthan PCC.
