Appointment of CM's advisors unconstitutional: BJP attacks Gehlot

 
Jaipur, Nov 23 (IANS) Rajasthan BJP has strongly objected to the appointment of six media advisors to Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and termed it unconstitutional.

Gehlot on Monday appointed six MLAs as advisors. These MLAs are Dr Jitendra Singh, Dr Rajkumar Sharma, Danish Abrar and three Independents -- Sanyam Lodha, Babulal Nagar and Ramkesh Meena.

However, BJP deputy leader of opposition Rajendra Rathore said that these positions are constitutional and has written a letter to Rajasthan Governor Kalraj Mishra raising issues on the appointments.

Rathore, in fact, has also warned of taking this matter to the court.

He said that the CM has simply distributed posts to please the disappointed faction.

"As per Article 191A of Indian Constitution, appointing advisors on post for profit without passing a law in the Assembly is unconstitutional and such appointments can never be made," he added.
