Attacking the BJP, he said, “They keep making efforts to ensure that our government does not complete five years. Earlier, too, the BJP tried horse trading but our MLAs were united and they did not budge. You can see the government was saved last time and it is still going strong.” Gehlot appealed to the youth, students and the public in general to send their suggestions directly to him so the government can come up with better schemes.
Responding to the allegation that the Congress was not able to deliver a strong Opposition in the country, Gehlot said Rahul Gandhi’s ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ had left the BJP government shocked and that it was left with no issue to attack the grand old party.
“When Rajnath Singh, Amit Shah and Nadda became the BJP presidents, no one knew. In the Congress, election is being conducted in a democratic manner. This election has given a message to the people of the country that the Congress is still in the position of giving a strong Opposition,” Gehlot said.
