Sudhanshu Trivedi Raised The Issue Of Using The Sedition Law Against Members Of Its Own Party MLAs And Ministers Creating An Atmosphere Of Distrust Among The People.
Jaipur, 22 August,(City Times): In a significant development, Sudhanshu Trivedi, a prominent Rajya Sabha MP from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), has launched a pointed critique against the Rajasthan Congress-led government. Speaking at a workshop organized by the Rajasthan Media Department and Social Media Department, Trivedi’s remarks shed light on the evolving political landscape in the state.
Shift in Public Perception
Trivedi’s comments underline a noticeable shift in the perception of Rajasthan’s current image. The state, which has been under the governance of the Congress led by Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, is now being subject to critical evaluation. Trivedi’s statement brings into focus the contrast between the state’s past reputation and its current standing.
Questioning Trust and Credibility
Sudhanshu Trivedi did not hold back in questioning the credibility of the Gehlot government. He raised the issue of using the sedition law against members of its own party—MLAs and ministers—creating an atmosphere of distrust among the people. This internal rift and contradictions within the ruling party have raised concerns over the government’s ability to function cohesively and uphold its commitments.
Seeking Change and Electorate’s Mood
Trivedi went on to express that the citizens of Rajasthan are now exhibiting a decisive mood for change. He highlighted the growing disillusionment caused by instances such as paper leaks and corruption cases. This disenchantment with the current state of affairs has, according to Trivedi, set the stage for a potential shift in the upcoming state elections.
Challenges for Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot
While addressing the audience, Trivedi aimed critical remarks at Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot. He specifically mentioned decisions like permitting the Popular Front of India (PFI) to organize a rally in Alwar, and drew attention to the escalating crimes against women. Trivedi urged Gehlot to take a fresh perspective on these incidents and the prevailing law and order situation.
Unveiling BJP’s Strategy
Sudhanshu Trivedi’s remarks offer a glimpse into the BJP’s strategy for the upcoming elections. He emphasized the party’s determination to win over the electorate by securing a decisive mandate. This confidence stems from the growing discontent among the people of Rajasthan, a sentiment that the BJP intends to tap into for electoral success.
Leadership Deployment and Electoral Preparedness
A notable aspect highlighted by Trivedi is the BJP’s decision to deploy senior leaders, including Union Ministers Amit Shah and Rajnath Singh, for extensive campaigning in poll-bound Rajasthan. The party is gearing up to launch a series of ‘Parivartan Yatras’ across the state. These yatras are envisioned as a direct engagement strategy to connect with voters at various levels.
High-Profile Culmination and Prime Minister’s Address
The ‘Parivartan Yatras’ are set to kick off on September 2, 3rd, 4th, and 5 respectively, spanning a period of 23 days. The culmination of this campaign is anticipated to be a grand public address by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on September 25 in Jaipur. This event will likely set the tone for the electoral battle that Rajasthan is poised to witness later this year.
Past Election Overview and Contest Ahead
Reflecting on the previous elections held in 2018, the Congress secured 99 seats, while the BJP claimed 73 out of the 200-member legislative assembly. The Congress, led by Ashok Gehlot, managed to form the government with support from Independents and the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP). Sudhanshu Trivedi’s remarks encapsulate the evolving narrative in Rajasthan’s political arena, hinting at the potential dynamics that could shape the forthcoming state elections.
