Geholt hits back at Shekhawat’s Ravana remarks
“The Ravana of Rajasthan Politics,” Union Minister to Ashok Gehlot; Gehlot Hits Back at Shekhawat regarding his involvement in Sanjeevani Credit Co-operative Society scam.
Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, Union Minister, described Ashok Gehlot as the “Ravana of Raj politics” at a BJP Jan Aakrosh rally in Chittorgarh. Ashok Gehlot hit back at Shekhawat by talking about his involvement in Sanjeevani Credit Co-operative Society scams.
“The Ravana of Rajasthan Politics”
Union Jal Shakti Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat referred to Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot as “the Ravana of Rajasthan’s politics” and urged the populace to remove him from office and install “Ram Rajya.”
Establish Ram Rajaya in Rajathan
Shekhawat attacked the Congress administration and Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot during his speech at the BJP’s Jan Aakrosh rally on Thursday in Chittorgarh.
After his speech, Shekhawat said, “If you want to put an end to Ashok Gehlot being the Ravana of Rajasthan politics, then raise your arms. Decided to implement Ram Rajya in Rajasthan.”
The Union Minister criticized the government in his speech for its handling of corruption and question paper leaks. He declared: “A CBI investigation will be conducted when the BJP government takes office. Many leaders of Congress will then be under investigation.”
Corruption and paper leak scam
Shekhawat stated, “Paper leaks are occurring in Rajasthan. According to CM, no officer or leader is responsible for the RPSC paper leak. Recently, an RPSC member was apprehended. Let the political system evolve. The CBI will investigate the paper leak. Many members of Congress will serve time in prison. People will not accept those who attempt to play with the youth’s future.
Statement of OSD of CM regarding Union Minister’s remarks
The statement by Gajendra Singh Shekhawat was strongly condemned, according to Lokesh Sharma, OSD of the CM, in a tweet (in Hindi).
“When you say things like this, @gssjodhpur, you are not mocking the Chief Minister; rather, you are offending the people of #Rajasthan, who have a great deal of love and respect for their CM. The Chief Minister’s efforts to advance the state’s development and combat excruciating inflation are not acceptable to the BJP. It’s easy to see the frustration,” he said.
Ashok Gehlot hits back at Shekawat
On Friday, Chief Minister of Rajasthan Ashok Gehlot retaliated against Union Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat for calling him “Ravan.”
Sanjeevani Credit Co-operative Society scam
Gehlot reportedly said to Shekhawat, “If I am Ravan, then you become Ram and return the investors’ money,” about Shekhawat’s alleged involvement in the Sanjeevani Credit Co-operative Society scam.
He continued to challenge the BJP leader by stating, “If you throw stones at me, I’ll use those to build houses for the poor.” After visiting a camp for people affected by inflation in the Hanumangarh town of Rawatsar, Gehlot spoke to a crowd and claimed that Shekhawat’s friends were imprisoned in connection with the scam and that the Union minister was also likely to face prison time.
Response from Ashok Gehlot
In response to Shekhawat’s comments, Gehlot stated on Friday that “BJP leaders and Union Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat have started insulting me recently. Is that me, Ravan? Sanjeevani Society’s 2.5 lakh members were pillaged by you (Shekhawat), and they were left destitute. Your friends are behind bars. As well, you can be arrested at any time.” Shekhawat’s arrest over the scam was recently stayed by the Rajasthan High Court’s Jodhpur bench.
“I’ll use the stones you throw at me to construct homes for the underprivileged. I think along those lines. I’m going to build hospitals. I don’t believe that one cannot criticize and that if one does, he will face punishment in prison,” the Congress leader said.
