Udaipur : Amid the ongoing political crises, the Bhartiya Tribal Party (BTP) has decided to give its support to Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot. The party vice president Paresh Bhai Vasava, in a press conference at Dungarpur, on Thursday, told the media that BTP respects the public mandate and does not want to topple the government which has been elected by the people. Earlier, the party which has two MLAs in the Rajasthan assembly, had asked its legislators to remain neutral and not align either with Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot or his deputy Sachin Pilot.
Speaking to the media, Vasava said BTP would never support anyone who tries to fracture a government unethically, before completion of its term.” We would prefer the Gehlot government to complete its term. Both our MLAs are constantly in touch with the party high command and would act as per directions from the organization” Vasava said. He also said there is no possibility of a floor test immediately, however, if such a situation arise, then the party would act according to the need of the hour. Speaking on the occasion the party president Velaram Goghra said that BTP has always abided by the priniciples of issue based politics.
” It has been our motive to communicate the public’s demand and requirement before the government and get them fulfilled for the general good. We had put forth 5 demands before the government which includes implementation of Maharashtra pattern in Rajasthan, planning in tribal area according to the availability of the natural resources and to give charge of the tribal advisory committee to the Minister of tribal area development” he said.
