Stench, sewage water on streets and overflowing drains greet you at Chachhlao — the village Rajasthan chief minister Vasundhara Raje adopted in her constituency Jhalrapatan.
Congress had drawn a blank in the 2014 general elections from Rajasthan. Later, Karan Singh Yadav won from Alwar and Raghu Sharma from Ajmer.
Anil Kumar Singh, a political analyst, said the move appeared to be in sync with the party’s strategic shift to soft Hindutva. “In its campaign so far, the Congress has not raised issues related to minorities at high decibel.
The move is also likely to soothe the nerves of general category, who has been demanding quota in jobs for economically weaker sections.
Gandhi was referring to the Prime Minister's “silence” on the Rafale fighter aircraft deal with France and the Modi government's “failure” to bring fugitive businessman Vijay Mallya to book.
Rahul Gandhi will be in the Rajasthani town of Sagwara to attempt to woo back tribal voters ahead of state elections.
Tickets will be given only to winnable candidates irrespective of their age. Almost 50% of these MLAs are likely to be repeated,” one of the sources said.
Raje, however, will skip her own constituency, where two days ago NSUI , the student wing of Congress, edged past BJP’s student wing, ABVP, in university elections.
Historically, whichever party dominates the Udaipur region gets to rule Rajasthan
Raje has announced loan waivers for farmers, smartphones for more than one crore Bhamashah card holders and 4% cut in value-added tax on petrol and diesel to provide relief ahead of assembly election.
