Gehlot forgot all pre-poll promises: Prahlad Joshi

Ashok Gehlot

BJP Election In-Charge for Rajasthan Pralhad Joshi on Friday accused the Ashok Gehlot government of reneging on its pre-poll promises, including that of a full farm waiver, as he predicted his party’s victory by a two-thirds majority in the upcoming state polls.
“I say with full hope and confidence that the Bharatiya Janata Party will form the government in Rajasthan this time with a two-thirds majority,” Union Minister Joshi, who had come to Jaipur for the first time after being appointed in-charge for the Rajasthan election, told the media. Joshi also alleged that incidents of women’s atrocities had increased during the Congress government and that law and order virtually collapsed in the state.
The minister said the BJP will flag all these issues during its campaign. “The Rajasthan unit of the BJP has already launched several programmes, and it has protested on various issues related to people. The response from the people is very good. We will distribute all these things among the people in a more systematic manner,” he said.
Joshi also alleged that it is in the Congress’ “DNA” to forget its promises once it has made them. “Here too, it had promised a complete farm loan waiver, but it has not been fulfilled yet.”
