In an unprecedented turn of events at the Rajasthan assembly on Monday, sacked minister Rajendra Gudha made a dramatic entrance, waving a red diary that he claimed contained evidence of irregular financial transactions. He accused Congress leaders of forcibly removing him from the assembly.
Gudha was removed from his position as the minister of state on Friday after he confronted the Congress government led by Ashok Gehlot during the assembly session. On Monday, during the Zero Hour, he approached Speaker CP Joshi’s chair, engaging in a heated argument. As Gudha brandished the red diary, the Speaker asked him to come to his chamber. Subsequently, Gudha confronted Parliamentary Affairs Minister Shanti Dhariwal with great aggression while he was speaking.
Reports state that Congress MLA Rafiq Khan pushed Gudha, prompting other party MLAs to intervene and attempt to escort the Udaipurwati MLA away. In response, BJP MLAs rose from their seats, creating a commotion and demanding answers about the contents of the Lal Diary. They also symbolically waved red diaries. Amid the chaos, the Speaker adjourned the House until 2 pm.
Prior to the session’s commencement in the morning, Gudha had informed reporters that he intended to disclose details about the red diary in the assembly, stating that it held some significant secrets. After the House was adjourned, Gudha informed the media at the assembly building that he had wanted to make a statement about the red diary, but the Speaker did not permit it. He announced his intention to share the diary’s secrets with the public the following day.
According to Gudha, he acquired the diary during an income tax raid at the residence of RTDC chairman Dharmendra Rathore, and during the raid, Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot instructed him to secure the diary, which he did.
Gudha alleged that the diary, purportedly authored by Rathore, contained details of money provided to MLAs and implicated both Ashok Gehlot and his son, Vaibhav Gehlot.
