BRING BACK CONG GOVT FOR COMPLETION OF PROJECTS: CM GEHLOT TELLS MASSES
Jodhpur: Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot reached Jodhpur directly from New Delhi to celebrate the festival of Rakshabandhan with his elder sister Vimala Devi, with whom he is deeply attached to. The CM was extended a warm welcome by public representatives and police officials at the Airport. While talking to the media at the Airport, Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot expressed concern over the lumpy disease spreading in cows and said that the government is trying its best to curb it. “There is currently no vaccine available for the disease. Although, a vaccine is being developed. The State Government is making all necessary efforts to curb the disease,” he added. Gehlot on Thursday, appealed to people to vote for his party in the next state Assembly polls, saying his government’s ouster will stall ongoing development projects.
The elections in the state will be held next year. Stressing his point, Gehlot said the Barmer refinery project was delayed as the Congress government was ousted from power in the 2014 Assembly polls.“Its cost has risen from Rs 40,000 to Rs 70000,” said Gehlot, holding the previous BJP government responsible for this. Training his guns at BJP, Gehlot told media that the feeling of revenge is part of BJP’s character. The party holds projects and harasses opposition leaders using agencies like the ED and the CBI, he said. “That is why, I say the change of government brings losses. Only if our government is repeated, we would be able to complete ongoing projects,” he said. Referring to the stampede at Sikar’s Khatu Shyamji temple that claimed lives of 3 pilgrims, he said his government will talk to priests and religious heads about possible arrangements at temples so that no such incident takes place in future. He also directed the DM to conduct a survey about 216 pilgrims who had died in a stampede at Mehrangarh Fort temple on Sept 30, 2008.
