Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot took aim at the Narendra Modi government on Tuesday, saying that "if we sympathise with terrorists, the Centre should dismiss us."
Gehlot accused the Modi government at the Center of implicating the Rajasthan government in sympathizing with terrorists, citing the tragic killing of Kanhaiya Lal in Udaipur.
“If this is so, then Prime Minister Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah should dismiss the Rajasthan government.”
He added that the Central government can dismiss a government which sympathises with terrorists. The Central government has the right, so why don't they do it.
Gehlot conducted a distinct meeting with Sursagar and Sardarpura workers on Monday. Additionally, during his brief visit on Sunday, he actively participated in the Diwali meeting with workers held at a hotel in Kaylana.
Speaking in the Diwali Sneh Milan programme, he said, “We took immediate action regarding the case of Kanhaiya Lal of Udaipur. The accused were arrested. There was a Bharatiya Janata Party connection, hence the NIA has not even presented the challan yet. The BJP is accusing the state government of supporting terrorists. The atmosphere is being spoiled in the assembly elections.
“Polarization in the name of religion is found in the speeches of the Prime Minister and the Home Minister. They are not getting any issue in Rajasthan. In Karnataka, they got tired of calling Bajrang Bali, the Congress won with a huge majority."
The CM told the workers: “Surveys and speculators have been bought in Rajasthan but this time history will be made in Rajasthan. The Congress government will be back. All the announcements in the public manifesto have been fulfilled. The government has made many laws for the public. The common people have benefited from the inflation relief camp.”
Gehlot assigned the responsibility to the workers to enhance their activity levels in preparation for the upcoming assembly elections.
Following the workers' conference, he convened with senior Congress leaders at a private hotel. Subsequently, Gehlot engaged in one-on-one discussions with various leaders, seeking their feedback after the meetings.
