Ashok Gehlot: The Centre should establish a Department of Peace
The BJP-led Centre should establish a Department of Peace if it Truly believed in Democracy and the Constitution. Ashok Gehlot was speaking at the “Rajasthan Gandhi Darshan Sammelan” occasion. In the event, he stated, “Democracy is in danger, and the country’s situation is worrying. It’s easy to win polls in the name of spirituality. It is not a brave thing to do. The BJP will not tolerate criticism. Like Rajasthan, all states need to have a Department of Non-violence and Peace.
The Centre should create a Department of Peace, says Ashok Gehlot
According to the chief minister, Ashok Gehlot, all states should have a Department of Peace and Non-violence, like Rajasthan, and the federal government should have one.
If the BJP-led Centre truly believed in Democracy and the Constitution, it should create a Department of Peace
Ashok Gehlot, the chief minister of Rajasthan, said on Wednesday that if the BJP-led Centre truly believed in Democracy and the Constitution, it should create a department of peace and non-violence similar to what his government has already done.
Gehlot claimed it is simple and not a brave act to ensure election victories in this way, alleging the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of doing so in the name of religion.
The country’s situation is worrying, and Democracy is in danger
He emphasized that the country’s situation is worrying and Democracy is in danger. “As of right now, the nation’s Democracy is in what state? Which direction the nation is going is unknown. “The BJP and the RSS now control the nation,” the Congress leader declared.
Gehlot was addressing the “Rajasthan Gandhi Darshan Sammelan” event
Speaking at the “Rajasthan Gandhi Darshan Sammelan” event in the city, Gehlot claimed that the BJP had supported Anna Hazare, Arvind Kejriwal, and yoga master Ramdev in a campaign against the former Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) administration at the Centre on issues like Lokpal and added that there is currently no discussion of these or other issues like the coal scam, 2G spectrum, or the Lokpal.
Ashok Gehlot: “The BJP won’t stand for criticism”
“Winning polls in the name of spirituality is simple. It is not a courageous act. Religion and caste are such complex issues that anything is possible. The issue at hand is the Constitution’s blatant disregard. The BJP won’t stand for criticism,” he continued.
Gehlot emphasized the importance of opposition in a democracy and said that a government can only exist when there is opposition.
“If my administration or I receive criticism, I feel satisfied. What’s the issue with criticism if it can be improved, as is a fact? Without criticism, how will the right thing emerge?” he questioned the audience.
“All states should have a department of peace and non-violence”
According to the chief minister, all states should have a Department of Peace and Non-violence, like Rajasthan, and the federal government should also have one.
I would like to suggest to the NDA governance: “Why not establish a peace department if you genuinely trust in democracy and have confidence in the Constitution?”
He claimed that it was the goal of leaders like Mahatma Gandhi, B. R. Ambedkar, Jawaharlal Nehru, and others that the nation remained united and operated according to their decisions.
To foster peace, brotherhood, and the Gandhian philosophy in the state through various programs, the Rajasthan administration established the Division of Peace and Non-Violence in October 2021 and enhanced it to a Department in October 2022.
