Rajasthan Election 2023: Assembly elections are going to be held in Rajasthan this year. Before this, movement of leaders continues in the state. In this sequence, Prime Minister Narendra Modi reached the state on Thursday and addressed an election meeting in Jodhpur. In this entire public meeting, everyone’s eyes were fixed on former Rajasthan CM Vasundhara Raje. PM Modi targeted state CM Ashok Gehlot. But the eyes of political experts were on Vasundhara Raje present on the stage.
PM Modi was seen on the stage for about an hour. During this time, Vasundhara Raje was seen sitting near him, but no discussion of any kind was seen between the PM and Vasundhara Raje. Everyone’s eyes were on the Prime Minister’s meeting and most of the people were keeping an eye on former CM Vasundhara Raje. And watching his expressions on the stage.
Former Rajasthan CM Raje had reached the meeting a few minutes before Prime Minister Modi, but she could not greet the PM on the stage. After PM Modi’s departure from the state, Raje wrote on social media platform Listen, everyone has new enthusiasm!
Let us discuss here that this time BJP is contesting elections in Rajasthan without the face of the Chief Minister. Supporters of Vasundhara Raje have been demanding for a long time to declare Raje as the CM face, but PM Modi has given a big blow to the Vasundhara Raje camp by saying that she will contest the elections on the lotus symbol. It is being said that Vasundhara Raje’s supporters are angry over not being made the CM face.
There are reports in the headlines that former Rajasthan CM Vasundhara Raje was also keeping distance from the Parivartan Yatra. It is believed that due to Vasundhara Raje’s displeasure there is a delay in finalizing the list of candidates.
According to those who closely monitor the politics of Rajasthan, the tension of sidelining Vasundhara Raje in the elections is clearly visible. Before PM Modi’s arrival, Leader of Opposition Rajendra Rathore was addressing the gathering, but as soon as the Prime Minister reached the venue, he handed over the mike to Union Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat. Just a few minutes before the arrival of the PM, former CM Vasundhara Raje had reached the stage.
