CM Ashok Gehlot has handed over the investigation of his MLAs being lured by BJP to the SOG. Your say?
It’s a political drama by chief minister Ashok Gehlot. His allegations are baseless and mindless.

It took Gehlot 69 days to interact public representatives by way of video conferencing. It may have completed a lot earlier.
