The state BJP showed unity in the Jan Aakrosh Yatra that started in Jaipur today, but the empty chairs in the public meeting have increased the concern of the party. The BJP has started Jan Aakrosh Yatra across the state to commemorate the end of the Congress government’s four-year tenure.
This yatra will visit 200 assembly districts and reach out to 2 million people. The BJP will use this yatra to attack the Congress ahead of the election season. For this, 51 chariots were flagged off by the party’s national president, JP Nadda, at Dussehra Maidan. Along with state in-charge Arun Singh, former Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje, State President Satish Punia, Union Ministers Gajendra Singh, Arjun Meghwal, and BJP MPs, all prominent leaders of the state were present at the rally. BJP leaders fiercely attacked the Congress government. The BJP’s strategy is to corner Congress in the state through the yatra but the biggest question is whether this yatra by the BJP will be successful because factionalism in the BJP is at its peak. On one side there is former Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje and on other side there is state BJP and MPs. After Raje became active in Rajasthan again this is the first time that under her leadership no rally is being conducted.
In such a situation, apprehensions are being expressed about the success of the yatra. Today, the BJP leaders made all the allegations against the Congress, including corruption. They tried to show that everything is fine in BJP, but the fight in Congress is at its peak. There is no doubt that the Rajasthan Congress is in disarray. Rahul Gandhi will be coming to Rajasthan on 4 December for the Bharat Jodo Yatra. After the intervention of the high command, Sachin Pilot and his faction leaders have kept their silence against Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot but the matter does not seem to be ending. Whatever the BJP says, the infighting between the two parties is at an all-time high.
The BJP high command is not in the mood to declare anyone as its face this time. BJP National President Nadda has said a couple of times that the election will be fought on the face of Prime Minister Modi. The Raje camp is not happy with this. They want that Raje should be declared the face. Because of this, the situation inside the BJP camp is serious. This is thought to be the primary reason for the lack of attendance in today’s program. The Congress Party is excited with the BJP’s lack of support. Now how much crowd gathers for Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra, in Rajasthan on 4 December, will indicate the wave in the election year.
