With the assembly elections scheduled for next year, the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) rubbed salt on the wounded ruling Congress, which is battling internal fighting. BJP leaders have said that the internal crisis in the ruling Congress is impacting the development in Rajasthan.

Rajasthan BJP president, Satish Poonia, said that the development of the state has come to a standstill due to the political hypocrisy of the Congress. The people of Rajasthan will answer this fraud in 2023, he said.
“Even the India-Australia match is not so uncertain as compared to the Congress leadership in Rajasthan. People are watching every move of the government. What will they rule and where will they take them? Now God can save Rajasthan,” Poonia tweeted.

The deputy opposition leader in the Rajasthan assembly, Rajendra Rathore, took a jibe at the viral video of urban development and housing minister Shanti Dhariwal, in which the cabinet minister said that if anyone other than Ashok Gehlot becomes a CM, then the Congress party will be in trouble and they will lose Rajasthan like they lost Punjab.

Rathore tweeted, “By saying this, Minister Shanti Dhariwal ji has told the future of the party in a very calm nature that how the party lost Punjab earlier and now the party is going to lose Rajasthan in the coming time.”

“This whole cycle of rebellion in the Congress has made one think that why the post of national president of Congress Party is so small and insignificant even compared to the post of Chief Minister? What kind of magic treasure is hidden in this? Only time will tell this,” he added.

Commenting on Union minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat tweeted Dhariwal’s video, stating that it was a “magic trick for the chair and party workers for publicity”.

According to party sources, while the Bharat Jodo Yatra was receiving positive attention from the media and readers, the Rajasthan political crisis had diverted the media’s attention to the Congress’ internal squabble.

“BJP will not let this opportunity go out of their hands. This kind of tussle amongst the top leadership of Congress gives a wrong message to the public when the state is due to go for elections in 2023 and the Congress party will have to fight the BJP in 2024. The BJP will use this for next year’s election,” said a source.
