Controversy Surrounds Former Chief Minister’s Alleged Intervention in Rajasthan Elections

In the recent Lok Sabha elections in Rajasthan, the Congress, along with the India United Front, posed a significant challenge to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). However, following the conclusion of polling, several questions have emerged in the political landscape. The pivotal query revolves around the role of former Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot in the state’s politics. This inquiry gains prominence due to the contest in the Barmer-Jaisalmer Lok Sabha constituency, where Independent candidate and legislator Ravindra Singh Bhati, challenging Congress candidate Ummedaram Beniwal and BJP incumbent MP Kailash Choudhary.

While Congress seemed strong in this constituency, behind-the-scenes discussions have also surfaced regarding Gehlot’s purported assistance to Bhati. Subsequently, various leaders, including Harish Choudhary, have indirectly raised questions about Gehlot’s involvement. However, party officials seem cautious about making direct statements.

On the other hand, the former Chief Minister, when asked about the accusations, retorted, “Who are the candidates against whom allegations are being made? I don’t even know them. I have never met the third-party candidate in my life.” Gehlot further added, “I am not familiar with them the candidates, nor have I met them. If there have been any meetings over the past ten years, that’s a different matter.” During the conversation, he indirectly criticized Congress leader Harish Choudhary and his team, suggesting that such individuals lacking political acumen are also present in politics. Gehlot emphasized, “I don’t even know that candidate.”

The Barmer-Jaisalmer constituency has been a focal point of political maneuvers, with various parties aiming to secure victory. However, Gehlot’s alleged involvement in supporting an Independent candidate has stirred controversy and raised questions about ethical conduct within the political arena. While Gehlot denies any association with the candidates, the matter remains contentious, especially given the high stakes involved in the election outcomes.

Political observers anticipate further developments in this narrative as the electoral process unfolds. The allegations and denials surrounding Gehlot’s role may impact public perception and influence voter behavior in the region. As the political landscape continues to evolve, stakeholders closely monitor the unfolding events, underscoring the intricacies and complexities of electoral dynamics in Rajasthan.
