Rajasthan Congress MLAs, who are supporting Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and staying in Jaisalmer, visited Tanot Mata Temple on Saturday.

The visit of the legislators to the temple comes ahead of the Rajasthan Assembly session, which is scheduled to begin on August 14.

Congress MLAs, who are supporting Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot are lodged at the hotel since July 31. They were seen singing songs, watching movies, and doing yoga there.

The MLAs were lodged at Jaipur's Fairmont Hotel after differences between Gehlot and his former deputy Sachin Pilot came out in open triggering a political crisis in the state.

The Congress had accused the BJP of indulging in horse-trading to bring down the Gehlot government. However, BJP has rejected the allegations.
