JAIPUR: On Tuesday the union minister Prakash Javadekar said that, the BJP will be contesting in the Rajasthan assembly polls on the agenda of development, which will be challenging the Congress to mainly focus on its poll campaign for the state's progress. The BJP's state poll in-charge, Javadekar said that the battle of elections would be held under the leadership of chief minister Vasundhara Raje.
"We are going to the public with slogans like 'BJP fir se' and 'fir ek baar, BJP sarkar' because the trend of the alternate parties' government is going to break this time. The BJP will have a repeat government.” Javadekar said at a news conference.
Pointing at the traditional old party, Javadekar said that the Congress is the party of one family while "the BJP is a party which itself is a family".
"They have no leadership, neither in the state nor in the Centre. They could not declare their chief ministerial candidate in the state. Sachin Pilot seems to be Rahul Gandhi's choice, but Gandhi has no courage to declare him as the CM candidate officially. They are talking of 'kaun banega crorepati' but this is the time for the people to ask what is their plan to serve the people. We are contesting elections under the leadership of chief minister Vasundhara Raje, who made the state touch new heights of development. Our national president has already clarified it," he said.
He said that the Congress was a popular political party but the current Congress is not the party which was led by Mahatma Gandhi. “Rahul Gandhi's Congress is becoming irrelevant," he said.
The HRD minister said in past four years, after Narendra Modi was elected for the prime minister, the Congress lost many states, as they were won by the BJP and this was caused by the vote bank politics because it was weakened.
He said the stats of Congress-ruled states decreased rom 16 to 4 and the BJP-ruled ones increased from 6 to 19 in last four years.
The minster said it was because the politics within the country has changed. "There will be no more politics of one family. Now the poor is also ambitious and the prime minister considers the poor one amongst us," he said.
