'Gehlot factor’ may play in Vasundhra Raje’s mind for second leg of Gaurav yatra in Jodhpur
Congress state chief Sachin Pilot said that the rally will expose promises made by Raje government.
Jodhpur division is BJP’s important political fort, which has sent 2 ministers at centre and 4 ministers in Rajasthan government. The Jodhpur division comprises six districts – Jodhpur, Barmer, Jaisalmer, Pali, Sirohi and Jalore.
On the same day, 400 kms away at Chittorgarh, Congress would be launching Sankalp rally to counter Raje’s Gaurav Yatra. Congress state chief Sachin Pilot said that the rally will expose promises made by Raje government.
Meanwhile, in Jodhpur division, Raje’s focus would be to keep the party’s position intact. In the last elections, BJP clinched 30 out of 33 seats making a big dent in Gehlot’s territory. The caste combination of Jat, Vishnoi, Meghwal and Rajput had worked well for BJP that time.
This time, the situation has become a little challenging with Rajputs backing out from BJP’s fold.
