vote bank politics:-

Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, a Union minister, and BJP leader, accused the Congress-led government in Rajasthan, headed by Ashok Gehlot, of being extremely corrupt and engaging in vote bank politics by favoring a particular religious group. 

Shekhawat made these allegations during a press conference in Ladnun, Nagaur district, where he attended a BJP State Working Committee meeting.

In response to the recent seizure of Rs 2.31 crore at Yojana Bhawan in Jaipur, Shekhawat claimed that the Gehlot government was the most corrupt in the history of democratic India. He argued that the Anti-Corruption Bureau, the Income Tax Department, and the Enforcement Directorate should have been notified about such an incident.

Furthermore, Shekhawat mentioned rumors of discrepancies between the disclosed and recovered amounts.

Regarding reports of posters appearing in the Kishanpole area of Jaipur city, alleging an exodus of Hindus, Shekhawat stated that similar situations exist in various areas of Rajasthan. 

He accused the Gehlot government of indulging in appeasement politics and attempting to please members of a specific religious community to strengthen their vote bank. He compared these actions to the rule of the Mughals, evoking memories of historical governance.

Shekhawat emphasized that the BJP would tirelessly fight against the “corrupt, anti-farmer, anti-youth, and anti-Hindu” government to rid the state of Rajasthan of its rule. He took to Twitter, claiming that the central government pursued honesty while the state’s Congress government operated dishonestly.

The ongoing exchange of accusations between Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and Gajendra Singh Shekhawat revolves around the issue of corruption. Shekhawat notably defeated Gehlot’s son, Vaibhav Gehlot , in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls in Jodhpur. With assembly elections approaching later in the year, political tension remains high in Rajasthan.
