Prime Minister Narendra Modi slammed the Ashok Gehlot-led Congress government in Rajasthan on Monday, saying the chief minister has conceded defeat and is pleading with the BJP not to halt initiatives in the state.
PM Modi stated at a public event, “…CM Ashok Gehlot is aware that the countdown for Congress’s farewell has begun.” Gehlot Ji is convinced that he will go, which is why he has already congratulated the BJP. He is demanding that his projects not be halted once the BJP takes power in Rajasthan. I’d like to thank Gehlot ji for officially admitting that the BJP will win power in Rajasthan.”
Further attacking Gehlot, the PM said the CM was preoccupied with securing his seat in the state, while his party was preoccupied with stealing it.
“… Every corrupt person, goon, rioter, tyrant, and Congress leader has considered himself to be the government of Rajasthan.” He claimed that Congress left no stone unturned in its looting of the state.
During his speech, the Prime Minister also emphasized his concern about crime in Rajasthan, saying that the Congress had “destroyed the state” during the last five years.
While speaking at the gathering, the PM became emotional and stated that Rajasthan has the highest “number of cases of crime against women.” “It bothers me that the state is at the top of the crime list, in terms of criminal incidents…Which state ranks first in riots…which state ranks first in incidences of stone-pelting…which state ranks first in episodes of crimes against women and Dalits…which state has the worst name…” Is this why you voted in Congress?” he inquired.
He further stated that only the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) can bring about overall prosperity in Rajasthan. “The development of Rajasthan is the biggest priority of the central government,” he stated.
Earlier in the day, PM Modi announced many development projects totaling over 7,000 crores in Chittorgarh. He stated that the BJP will safeguard the safety of women in Rajasthan. Rajasthan and four other states will hold elections before the end of the year.
