Gehlot took a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, asserting that his speeches lack substance. Emphasizing that the state assembly election is not "Modi Ji's election," Gehlot stated, "We will talk about development. Congress will repeat government in Rajasthan, and the BJP will not be visible after today."
Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, after casting his vote in Sardarpura, expressed confidence in the Congress’s victory, stating that the BJP is apprehensive about losing in the state.
Gehlot took a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, asserting that his speeches lack substance. Emphasizing that the state assembly election is not “Modi Ji’s election,” Gehlot stated, “We will talk about development. Congress will repeat government in Rajasthan, and the BJP will not be visible after today.”
His son, Vaibhav Gehlot, echoed this sentiment, stating, “I believe Congress will get a majority in the state. BJP is nervous as they know that they will lose in the state.” He dismissed allegations against him, including those related to the Red Diary, as fabricated.
Gehlot highlighted the government’s dedication to the people over the last five years, and he expressed confidence in the seven guarantees promised by the Congress, describing their credibility as “very high.”
As the elections in Rajasthan unfold with voting on 199 assembly constituencies, the ruling Congress is vying for another term, while the BJP aims to replace the Ashok Gehlot government, relying on the popularity of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Elections in the Karanpur constituency were adjourned due to the passing of Congress candidate Gurmeet Singh Koonar. Adequate security measures have been implemented to ensure peaceful and fair elections, and the counting of votes is scheduled for December 3.
In the 2018 elections, the Congress secured 99 seats, and the BJP won 73. Gehlot assumed the Chief Minister position with the support of BSP MLAs and independents. The political landscape in Rajasthan continues to evolve, setting the stage for an impactful electoral outcome.
