Former Rajasthan CM Allegedly Provided Audio Clips to OSD, Claims Ex-Aide

In a stunning disclosure, ex-Officer on Special Duty (OSD) to former Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, Lokesh Sharma, revealed on Wednesday that Gehlot allegedly provided him with a purported audio clip of a phone conversation. This clip purportedly involves Union Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat and certain Congress figures discussing the ousting of the state’s Congress government in 2020.

Sharma alleged that Gehlot orchestrated phone tapping of rebel Congress leaders, including Sachin Pilot. He asserted that Gehlot personally provided him with audio clips of rebel Congress leaders and their conversations, which were later disseminated to news outlets.

Addressing a press conference, Sharma stated, “Until now, I had claimed to have received these audio clips from social media, but that’s not true.” He detailed the events of July 16, 2020, when Gehlot purportedly handed him a pen drive containing audio clips and asked him to circulate them to the media.

Furthermore, Sharma alleged that Gehlot aimed to portray the BJP’s involvement in the “toppling” of the Rajasthan Congress government. He claimed that Gehlot sought to implicate Gajendra Singh Shekhawat as the main accused and alleged that the BJP, along with Sachin Pilot and other MLAs, conspired to overthrow the government.

Sharma also claimed that during the political crisis, the Rajasthan government monitored the movements of party leaders, including Sachin Pilot, to safeguard the Congress government. He stated that Pilot’s movements were tracked, and corrective measures were taken to address the situation.

This latest revelation adds new dimensions to the political turmoil that unfolded in Rajasthan in 2020, raising questions about the methods employed by political leaders to maintain power and control.
