Diwali is over, the election campaign has once again gained momentum in Rajasthan as the election day of November 25 draws near and political fireworks explode with enthusiasm. It is nothing more than the attacks launched by incumbent Congress chief Ashok Gehlot against Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The BJP’s electioneering seems to have yet to gain momentum and there is the odd resistance among the saffron party cadre; It is said that these cadres were not happy with the election of more than 40 candidates for the 200-member parliament and that, in their opinion, they were “non-performing” people. Who needed to be replaced?
With rebel party workers threatening to inflict serious damage on the BJP, it has no option but to wait for another visit from the chief minister, who remains the party’s superstar campaigner in the state. In the past few months, Prime Minister Modi has made 12 visits to Rajasthan and all of these visits have been used to criticize the Gehlot government.
Except for Gehlot and to some extent Mamata Banerjee in West Bengal, no other chief minister in the country has been at loggerheads with the prime minister on such different issues. So much so that Tamil Nadu chief minister MK Stalin described Gehlot as the “eyes and ears of states other than the BJP”.
