He added that there is no mention of Deputy Chief Minister's post in the Constitution. He added taht this is just a political post and it is unconstitutional. 

The Deputy Prime Minister is a political position rather than a constitutional position, unlike the position of Vice President of India, according to constitutional provisions. The position of DY PM was first created in 1947 upon the appointment of Sardar Vallabhai Patel as India's first Deputy PM. As a result, India created the position of Deputy Chief Minister.

Notably, in the event that the chief minister is unavailable, DY CM may preside over cabinet sessions and guide the assembly majority. In accordance with the Chief Minister's oath of secrecy, the DY CM also takes one.

Prem Chand Bairwa and Diya Kumari took oath as Deputy Chief Ministers of Rajasthan on Friday.
