BJP’s trip reached Jhalawar without Vasundhara Raje for the first time in 20 years, son Dushyant said this
Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP’s) Parivartan Sankalp Yatra, after completing its journey in Baran district, reached Kalmodiya intersection of Aklera on Tuesday, from where the Yatra entered the border of Jhalawar district. But this is the first time that a BJP visit reached Jhalawar without local MLA and former Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje. Today on Thursday too, this yatra will be held for the whole day in Raje’s assembly, Jhalrapatan, but there is no indication of Raje’s presence here even today.
BJP had released the schedule
There are a lot of posters of Raje on the chariots and other vehicles of Parivartan Yatra. BJP had also released the program of his participation in the yatra. But Vasundhara Raje not attending the yatra is hurting her supporters a lot. That enthusiasm which was seen even during the ordinary visits of Vasundhara Raje is not visible among the workers. However, this time BJP’s Yatra in Jhalawar district has been accompanied by Vasundhara Raje Scindia’s MP son Dushyant Singh. In all the previous visits, there was tremendous enthusiasm due to the presence of Vasundhara Raje, which was much less this time.
4 trips taken since 2003
Let us tell you that from 2003 till now, a total of 4 yatras were taken out by BJP in the state, out of which 3 were commanded by Raje. In 2003, the yatra started from Charbhuja temple of Rajsamand, which covered a distance of 13000 kilometers and BJP government was formed in the state under the leadership of Vasundhara Raje. Similarly, in 2013, Suraj Sankalp Yatra was taken out and once again BJP came to power in the state and Vasundhara Raje became the CM. BJP won a landslide victory in Hadoti. But this time during the yatra in Jhalawar district, Vasundhara Raje Scindia is not present which is affecting the yatra somewhere.
The son told why Raje did not come?
Due to Raje’s absence, the expected crowd is not able to attend the yatra, and an atmosphere of disappointment is also being seen among the local BJP workers. However, this time the command of the yatra is in the hands of Vasundhara Raje Scindia’s MP son Dushyant Singh, who says that Raje has not been able to attend the yatra at present due to her busy schedule and personal programs. He said that BJP workers are doing less in the company of Raje, and BJP is moving towards a big victory. In the upcoming elections, Bharatiya Janata Party will uproot Congress in Rajasthan. Manohar police station MLA Govind Rani Puria and acting president Sanjay Jain officially told that Raje has not been able to attend the yatra due to some important program but all the workers are working with full enthusiasm under her guidance.
