As the Rajasthan election campaign heats up, a war of words between Congress and BJP leaders has intensified. Prime Minister Modi, addressing a rally, asserted that the people of the state have decided not to vote for Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, citing allegations of corruption, riots, and crimes during the Congress government’s tenure.
Modi predicted the Congress’s disappearance after the elections, leading to a swift response from Ashok Gehlot. The Chief Minister accused the BJP of attempting to politicize the Kanhaiya Lal murder case, claiming the accused had ties to the BJP. He expressed frustration over the delay in the case’s investigation by the National Investigation Agency emphasizing that the Rajasthan Police had promptly arrested the accused.
Gehlot dismissed the ‘red diary’ issue raised by the BJP as baseless and challenged them to hand over any evidence to the Enforcement Directorate, Income Tax Department, or CBI. Expressing confidence in a Congress victory, he predicted that the BJP would vanish from the state after the December 3 election results.
The verbal sparring reflects the intense political atmosphere in Rajasthan as both parties strive to make their case to voters ahead of the upcoming elections.
