Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, after voting in Sardarpura, expressed confidence in the Congress’s victory, asserting that the state assembly election is not just about Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Gehlot criticized Modi’s speeches, stating they lack substance, and emphasized that the focus should be on development in the state.
Speaking to reporters, Gehlot stated that the Congress government would return to power in Rajasthan. He dismissed Modi’s significance in the election and predicted the BJP would not be visible after the results, reaffirming Congress’s majority.
Gehlot’s son, Vaibhav Gehlot, echoed his confidence in the Congress’s victory, stating that the BJP is nervous about losing in the state. He defended the government’s dedication to the people over the past five years.
Addressing allegations and the “Red Diary,” Vaibhav Gehlot dismissed them as fabricated, emphasizing that he does not respond to such claims.
As Rajasthan conducts voting on 199 assembly constituencies, the ruling Congress aims for another term, while the BJP seeks to replace the Ashok Gehlot government. The polling in Karanpur was adjourned due to the passing of Congress candidate Gurmeet Singh Koonar.
Adequate security measures are in place for fair and peaceful elections, with vote counting scheduled for December 3. In the 2018 elections, Congress won 99 seats, while BJP won 73, leading to Gehlot assuming the CM position with support from BSP MLAs and independents.
