Sacked minister from Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot-led Cabinet, Rajendra Singh Gudha was expelled from Congress on Monday. Gudha was sacked as minister of state on Friday after he cornered his own Congress government in the assembly.
Earlier in the day, Gudha was marshaled out of the Rajasthan Assembly after he created a ruckus and engaged in a scuffle with state Parliamentary Affairs Minister Shanti Dhariwal.
Gudha entered the House with a red diary, which he claimed contained “explosive” details, and waved it in front of Speaker CP Joshi. He did not stop there and also put down the mike of the Parliamentary Affairs Minister Dhariwal.

The incident took place when Dhariwal was proposing to expel Gudha from the House.
On seeing the tension rising, Congress MLA Rafiq Khan intervened leading to a scuffle between him and Gudha.
As the brawl escalated, the Speaker adjourned the proceedings of the House.
The Speaker then directed Gudha to be thrown out of the house. Marshals were called and he was ousted.
Gudha, who held charge as minister of state for Sainik Kalyan (Independent Charge), Home Guard and Civil Defence, Panchayati Raj and Rural Development, was sacked on Friday evening, hours after he cornered the state government over the law and order situation and women safety in the assembly.
