In the clip described on social media, he was heard asking RBSE chairman DP Jaroli to meet him and delete all pending files, stressing that he could not stay as education minister for too long.
“Files will not be in my office for an hour. You come on Monday. I will dispose of all your files in a minute.”
“Meng do-panch din ka mehman hun” (I can only stay for a few days), he says, “Do whatever you want from me done”
The video was released just days before Congress general secretary Ajay Maken’s planned visit to Jaipur on Tuesday, his second visit in recent days.
Maken, who is in charge of the AICC of the party’s state unit, and Casey Venugopal, another general secretary, arrived in Jaipur on Sunday to lobby for the vacant post of Ashok Gehlot’s Council of Ministers.
After meeting with state congressional leaders, Makin said there was no dispute between them over cabinet expansion.
He said they left the decision to party command.
Supporters of former deputy chief minister Sachin Pilot are seeking a share of the vacant berths in ministries and other posts after last year’s battle between his camp and Gehlat’s loyalists.
The video shows Dotashra sitting next to Rakesh Parik, a MLA from the pilot camp, and talking to a group over tea.
Dotashra protesters questioned his appointment as the head of the Rajasthan Congress, saying he was only a “junior” member of the Gehlot cabinet.
The Congress leader recently received the same mark from two of his relatives in an interview with the Rajasthan Administrative Service (RAS) and was blocked by the opposition after questioning the election process.
However, no evidence of wrongdoing was presented.
