Making the latest taunt on rebel camp, chief minister said that horse trading rates in have gone higher as new rates have been announced soon after the Assembly session date was finalised on Wednesday

Gehlot on Thursday met the MLAs camping in Fairmont Hotel and said that they will have to stay in the hotel till August 14 as the Governor has given his nod to call a special assembly session from the said date.

Soon after coming from the hotel, Gehlot looked altogether in a different mood and while talking to the media he said, "The rates of horse trading have increased after a new assembly session has been announced. Earlier, the first instalment was Rs 10 crore and second was Rs 15 crore for MLAs. However, now it's going unlimited and everyone knows who is involved in doing horse trading," adding that no one knows who all have collected the first instalment as well.

He also targeted Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati, and accused her of taking the stand at the behest of BJP.

CM also called those MLAs for floor test who were annoyed and said that as they won the elections on sign and symbol, it is their duty to ensure that they stand with the party on the floor.
