BJP national president Amit Shah declared that the Assembly elections in Rajasthan will be fought under the leadership of Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje and with a huge majority, She will again become the Chief Minister. Shah said that along with Rajasthan, in Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh, the party will once again form the government and in 2019 Narendra Modi will become the Prime Minister of the country. Amit Shah said this in the concluding session of the two-day meeting of the BJP Working Committee in T0tuka Bhawan in Jaipur on Saturday. He said that tradition of Congress is going to break this time. He said that Vasundhara Raje’s government has done a lot of work in Rajasthan. Several schemes like Bhamashah Yojana, CM Water Swavalamban Campaign, and Gaurav Path have got success in the country.
He said, “Congress is working to spread rumors by doing negative politics. This is an undeclared attack on democracy. Congress President Rahul Gandhi can’t feel his association with the country. Congress can not fight BJP The catholic structure of the Congress has ended. Now, there is a scarcity of corruption in the Congress. “He said,” Our victory is not complete until we win West Bengal, Odisha, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka.
Vasundhara Raje’s Performance
Rajasthan has 200 assembly seats, BJP had trusted Vasundhara Raje on 2003, 2008 and 2013 assembly elections. In the 2013 assembly elections, BJP got more than two-thirds majority. 163 seats were won under the leadership of Vasundhara, whereas the Congress got reduced to only 21 seats, in 2008, BJP came under the leadership of Vasundhara. In 2008, Congress had got 96 seats, then BJP got only 78 seats. But in 2003, under the leadership of Vasundhara, BJP got 120 seats, whereas the Congress got only 56 seats. Since 2013, there have been a total of 17 bypolls in Rajasthan, in which Vasundhara Raje was not successful once. That is why there was an atmosphere of revolt against Vasundhara Raje inside BJP which, bypassing Amit Shah, has declared Vasundhara’s name.
Why is Vasundhara Raje important?
It was believed that BJP could play a bet on any other leader than Vasundhara Raje but Amit Shah has put a break on all the speculations. Amit Shah has given a strong message to party workers, MLAs and MPs. Just a few days ago, the Agriculture and Farmer Welfare Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, in the Modi government, targeted Vasundhara and said that the victory in Rajasthan was only because of Modi. Union minister Shekhawat and CM Vasundhara Raje had a controversy over the post of the president.
Ashok Paranami, former BJP state president, gave his resignation as party president on April 17. From then on, relations between Vasundhara and BJP high command started to sour. When BJP extended the name of union minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat to the Rajasthan chief, Vasundhara opposed it. Rajasthan remained without BJP president for nearly 74 days, but the controversy finally took place in Vasundhara Raje and Madan Lal Saini was replaced by Gajendra Singh.
Party senior leader Ghanshyam Tiwari has rebelled against Raje and has launched his own party. At the same time, he registered the new party. This is the reason why this time it was discussed that there could be another name in place of Vasundhara but it did not happen.
