Bhairon Singh Shekhawat said, “As Union Minister of State and State Congress President at that time, I had met the then Governor Baliram Bhagat and Prime Minister PV Narasimha Rao and opposed the idea of toppling the elected government, and said that this Is against democratic values. Even the people of Rajasthan did not want such a tradition to be established here. ” The Chief Minister said that following all the norms, six MLAs of Bahujan Samaj Party had joined Congress. He decided to form the Congress Legislature Party in his party to form a stable government and ensure development work in their respective areas within the ambit of law. He said at the end of the letter that he is confident that all the MLAs will stand with the truth and work for the development and prosperity of the state.
