WE TOOK CARE OF MASSES’ CONCERNS IN STATE BUDGET, SAYS GEHLOT
Jodhpur: CM Ashok Gehlot was extended a warm welcome at Jodhpur airport. Praising the State budget, the Chief Minister said that people are welcoming it only because they liked the budget so much. He also said that in the upcoming elections, now every party will decide its manifesto on the basis of the budget. Meanwhile, Gehlot duly inaugurated the 25th National Public Entertainment Fair in the open courtyard of Ashoka Garden wherein CM’s wife Sunita Gehlot also participated.
Addressing the event, CM Gehlot said, “When Man Singh Deora was UIT chairman, then the idea of an open theatre was conceived. It should not be named after Ashok Udyan. When I became the CM for the fi rst time, a fund was earmarked for welfare of artists & journos. Now when the pen came in hand, a budget of Rs 100 crore was given.” Gehlot also remembered Komal Kothari’s contribution and said, “The Sangeet Natak Akademi has also progressed after a long struggle. 3.5,000 hours of recording is a big record in itself.” He compared his budget with issues of Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra and said “Infl ation is high, people are worried, but we took care of their problems.”
