The Minister of Jal Shakti has been named in the FIR registered by Congress party for conspiring to topple the Ashok Gehlot government by horse-trading, as his voice figured in the audio clips released by Congress. Special Operation Group (SOG) of Rajasthan Police had issued a notice to Shekhawat for questioning.

“I am ready to face any investigation. The audio doesn’t have my voice. If I am called for questioning, I will definitely go,” NDTV quoted Shekhawat as saying.

The department on July 17 had filed two FIRs based on the complaint of Rajasthan Assembly chief whip Mahesh Joshi about three audiotapes that allegedly had a conversation of horse-trading between rebel Congress MLAs and BJP leaders including Shekhawat.
