Jaipur: Two MLAs of a regional party that withdrew support from the Congress government in Rajasthan have announced they will back the administration now, Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said on Saturday.
"Both MLAs of the Bharatiya Tribal Party (BTP) announced their support to the government after meeting their state executive officials and discussing with their demands," Mr Gehlot tweeted in Hindi.
He was seen receiving a letter of support from the MLAs in photos shared by his office.
The two MLAs had become an interesting sidelight in the political drama over Deputy Chief Sachin Pilot's revolt this week when they posted a video on social media, which went viral, alleging that they were being held against their wishes at the luxury hotel where Mr Gehlot has deposited Congress MLAs to ensure they are not flipped.
Losing the two MLAs would have brought down numbers for the Chief Minister as the Congress struggled to keep its flock protected from Sachin Pilot's rebel camp.
