The BJP has been under fire from Congressman and acting chief minister of Rajasthan, Ashok Gehlot, for the three Hindi heartland states of Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, and Rajasthan’s lack of announcement of their chief ministers’ identities. Gehlot expressed dissatisfaction ahead of a crucial meeting to assess the party’s performance in the recent Rajasthan assembly elections, claiming that “there is no discipline in this party.”

Gehlot, who is in Delhi for the meeting, accused the BJP of polarizing the elections in Rajasthan by raising religious issues and spreading misinformation. He remarked on the BJP’s delay in announcing the Rajasthan Chief Minister, stating that if the Congress had taken a similar amount of time, the BJP would have criticized them. Gehlot emphasized the need for the new government to quickly make decisions, citing the example of the Gogamedi case, where he had to sign a document for an NIA probe.

The Congress leader highlighted issues such as triple talaq, the abrogation of Article 370, the Kanhaiya Lal murder, and false narratives about monetary distributions based on religion as factors contributing to the BJP’s victory in the assembly elections. Despite these allegations, Gehlot mentioned that the Congress would cooperate with the new government.

Meanwhile, Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge and party MP Rahul Gandhi arrived at the AICC headquarters in Delhi for a crucial meeting to review the party’s performance in the recent Rajasthan assembly polls. Rajasthan Congress leader Govind Singh Dotasra emphasized the party’s focus on analyzing shortcomings and making corrections for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

The Congress brass held separate meetings to review losses in Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh, seeking detailed reports from state unit chiefs on the party’s performance. The recent assembly election results, particularly the losses in the Hindi heartland, dealt a significant blow to Congress’s prospects for the 2024 elections, leading to a reevaluation of strategies and performance. In Rajasthan, the BJP emerged victorious, winning 115 seats, while the Congress trailed with 69 seats.
