Parivartan Sankalp Yatra, Dungarpur (Rajasthan)

Union Home and Cooperation Minister Shri Amit Shah criticising the Ashok Gehlot led Congress government in Rajasthan said it has failed on the law-and-order front, especially in ensuring safety for women in the state. “Daily, almost 19 cases of crimes against women are reported and when it comes to rape cases, 22 per cent of the country’s cases comes from Rajasthan alone,” Shri Shah said in his address at the launch of BJP’s second ‘Parivartan Sankalp Yatra’ in Dungarpur on 3 September, 2023.

Criticising the Gehlot government of not cooperating with the Narendra Modi government at the Centre Shri Amit Shah said, “Gehlot ji is a magician, he makes many things disappear. In Rajasthan, Gehlot made the electricity disappear. Jadugar saheb made the health services, employment for youth, and women safety disappear too”.

The Union Home minister said by doing politics of appeasement, they have created an environment of insecurity in Rajasthan. Referring to various incidents, he said, “Kanhaiyalal was beheaded in Udaipur, there were prohibitions on Hindu festivals post Karauli violence, Path Sanchalan was prohibited during Vijayadashami, 300-year-old Shiv temple in Alwar was razed.”

Shri Shah also asked Chief Minister Gehlot what did Rajasthan get when the UPA was in power at the Centre. “Hisab dena chahiye, ke nahi dena chahiye? He won’t give but Gehlot ji, I have come with the Hisaab. You won’t tell but I will”. During UPA’s 10 years, Rajasthan got only Rs 1.60 lakh crore. But in his nine years, PM Shri Narendra Modi gave Rs 8.71 lakh crore to the people of Rajasthan.

Apart from this, Rs 57,000 crore was given for railways, Rs 43,000 crore for roads, Rs 6,000 crore for a new airport in Kota, several new medical colleges and solar parks in Bikaner, Jaisalmer were set up. 80 lakh farmers of Rajasthan were given Rs 16,000 crore directly in their accounts. And 1.10 crore homes are being given water connections, of which 43 lakh have already been given connections, he said.

‘Baghel-led Congress government is neck-deep in corruption’

Aaorp Patra’ against Chhattisgarh govt

The Union Home and Cooperation Minister Shri Amit Shah launched an ‘Aaorp Patra’ against the Bhupesh Baghel-led Congress government in Chhattisgarh on 2 September, 2023 and addressing on the occasion said that the Congress government was deeply entrenched in corruption, dynastic politics and casteism.

Accusing the State government of indulging in scams, abetting religious conversions and committing atrocities, Shri Shah said, “The people of Chhattisgarh have to decide whether they want the Baghel-led government that indulges in corruption to the tune of thousands of crores or the BJP government which is going to lead them on the path of development. The people of Chhattisgarh have to decide whether they want the government that came to power on the promise of protecting tribal rights but allowed a wave of religious conversions to be unleashed,” he said.

Referring to the recent money laundering case related to the Mahadev online betting app, he asked whether the people of Chhattisgarh wanted a government that was pushing youth to online betting or a BJP government that ensured the welfare of youths.

The Baghel-led government had broken all records of corruption, he said, adding that the BJP would win the Assembly election due later this year. He termed the government an “ATM for Delhi Durbar”.

The Union Home minister also targeted the State government over unfulfilled promises. CM Baghel made 36 big promises and 19 of them remain unfulfilled. Among the smaller promises, 316 still remain unfulfilled. Let them publish the list of unfulfilled promises. Even if they don’t, we have published the complete list of your false promises in our ‘Aarop Patra’, Shri Shah said.
