Rajasthan Elections 2023: The election campaign for Rajasthan Assembly 2023 has gained momentum. The period of attack and counterattack has begun. BJP leader Shehzad Poonawala said that 3 different Congress parties are contesting elections in Rajasthan. One is Gehlot’s Congress, the second is Pilot’s Congress and the third is the family based Congress. He further said that there are discussions that there was tension between Rahul Gandhi and Ashok Gehlot during ticket distribution. Rahul Gandhi did not come to campaign for the Gehlot government. Instead of Bharat Jodo Yatra, Rahul Gandhi will be taking out Congress Jodo Yatra.
On the upcoming elections in Rajasthan, Union Minister Prahlad Joshi said late on Monday night that I want to ask Congress who is its face. Have you declared that he is Gehlot? There is no picture of Rahul Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi, Kharge or Pilot in your (Congress) posters, there is only Gehlot’s picture.
Karnataka government minister Priyank Kharge hit back and said that even 15 percent of the public does not know who is the national president of the Bharatiya Janata Party. If anything good happens, PM Modi’s photo appears, if anything bad happens, Nadda’s photo appears. They should be concerned about the economic condition of the country. Karnataka Government Minister Priyank Kharge further said that we are at number 111 out of 125 countries in the Global Hunger Index. The Indian rupee is at 83.50 against the dollar. They used to say that when the Prime Minister comes to power, it will become Rs 15. They should worry about these and not about whose photo is where.
Chief Minister’s face not declared in Congress
The debate between Ashok Gehlot and Sachin Pilot in the Congress party is well known. On this, Congress leader Pilot says that Congress always decides on the name of the Chief Minister after winning the elections. At the same time, he also claimed that there is no Ashok Gehlot faction or Sachin Pilot faction in Congress. He said that I am saying this on the basis of the response we have received from the public.
Delay in getting ticket to Dhariwal, close to Gehlot
With the release of the first list of Congress, the eyes of politics were fixed on three close associates of Gehlot, Shanti Dhariwal, Mahesh Joshi and Dharmendra Singh Rathore. Even after list after list came out, no announcement was made regarding the names of these three. Here, there is a lot of discussion in politics about Shanti Dhariwal, who fiercely rebelled against the observers who had come from Delhi on 25 September last year. He also challenged the high command regarding this. Due to which Sonia Gandhi was also angry with Dhariwal. An indication of this was also seen in the recent meeting of the Central Election Committee.
On the other hand, Sachin Pilot was also very upset with Dhariwal. There is a discussion in politics regarding this that, during the ticket selection, Sachin Pilot expressed his protest against Dhariwal’s ticket. Due to this, Dhariwal had to wait for his ticket till the seventh list.
