Jaipur (Rajasthan) [India]: Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot questioned the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for targeting the ‘Gandhi family’ and said that the BJP just levels false allegations on a family that has the highest credibility in the country.
‘They won’t say anything, just make false allegations and are obsessed with the ‘Gandhi Parivaar’. For the past 30 years, no one from the Gandhi family has become Prime Minister… For 30 years, this family has lived without any position, they are just managing the Congress party’ Ashok Gehlot said while speaking to reporters in Jaipur.
‘Why does this cause so much anguish to the BJP, why does it bother them? … Why do they target them, they should target us, we work in the field…? Why are they afraid of them? This means that this family has the highest credibility in the country…’ Ashok Gehlot added.
Earlier on Wednesday while addressing an election rally in Rajasthan Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that the winds of change were blowing in the state and the people of the state were fed up with the Congress.
‘ The entire state of Rajasthan is saying this, the Congress is exiting the state and the BJP government is coming. In Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh, the Congress is decimated and now it is the turn of Rajasthan. Just like our mothers and sisters clean every corner of the house during Diwali, just like that we must also clean up the Congress from every corner of the state’ the Prime Minister said.
Addressing a public rally, BJP national president JP Nadda said ‘On one side is the BJP and on the other is the corrupt Congress party. The BJP is mindful of your rights and strives to uphold and safeguard them while the Congress deprives you of your rights. The Congress is synonymous with corruption.’
Rajasthan is set to undergo assembly polls on November 25, and the counting of votes will be done on December 3.
In the 2018 assembly elections, the Congress won 99 seats, while the BJP won 73 seats in the 200-member House.
Ashok Gehlot eventually took the oath as CM with the support of BSP MLAs and independents.
