Jaipur, Nov 6 – Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot submitted his nomination papers for the Sardarpura assembly constituency in Jodhpur, ahead of the upcoming assembly elections scheduled for November 25. Gehlot sought blessings from his sister Vimla before the nomination filing and expressed confidence in the Congress government’s performance over the past five years, emphasizing the implementation of historic and public welfare schemes. He asserted that this track record has prevented any anti-incumbency sentiment in the state, and he believes the Congress will secure victory once again.
Gehlot emphasized that the welfare schemes were designed to benefit all segments of society and have garnered recognition and appreciation not only within the state but also across the country. He highlighted the successful implementation of ten guarantees in the state, with seven more recently announced, expressing hope that the public will welcome them.
In response to questions, Gehlot criticized the central government, pointing to the alleged misuse of institutions like the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). He anticipated that the public’s response to these issues could make them a significant topic in both the assembly and Parliament following the upcoming elections.
