Congress Jat leader says gehlot is anti-Jat leader

The state Congress initiated disciplinary action against its vice-president and former Cabinet minister Hari Singh for making serious allegations against party president and Union minister C P Joshi and chief minister Ashok Gehlot. On behalf of Joshi, the PCC general secretary Mumtaz Masih issued the show-cause notice to Singh, seeking an explanation on the latter's "anti-party activities" within seven days. "Singh made unfounded statements before media against the chief minister and the PCC president on August 16 and 17. The party takes it as grave indiscipline," Masih told TOI, adding that making baseless allegations against two senior party leaders just before the municipal elections (held on August 18) suggested ulterior motives of the PCC vice-president.
Singh, on the other hand, welcomed the party action against him, saying he had nothing to fear as whatever he said was true. "I am yet to receive the notice, but won't take seven days reply to it. Within three days I can explain how I was right in accusing Gehlot." Earlier this week, Singh had termed the chief minister a casteist, an anti- Jat leader and someone who had promoted large-scale corruption in the government. The Jat leader, in fact, demanded the party high command should set up an independent inquiry committee against him to examine if the charges made by him were false. "The party high command should act on the basis of such an inquiry and punish me only if I am found wrong," the four-time Congress MLA and former Lok Sabha MP said.
