Congressional government in Rajasthan to complete five-year term: CM Ashok Gehlot


Rajasthan’s Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said on Saturday his government would complete its five-year term amid internal rumblings in Congress in neighboring Punjab, where Amarinder Singh resigned as CM, and in Chhattisgarh.

Speaking during a program at his residence here to launch the “Prashasan Sharon ke Sang and Prashasan Gaon ke Sang” campaign, Gehlot said there was speculation about Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh also after Punjab.

“The congressional government of Rajasthan will not only complete its five years, but will return to power in the next state legislative elections,” he said.

Gehlot said that based on people’s comments, there is no anti-titular factor against his government.

In Rajasthan, former Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot and Gehlot were locked in a struggle for leadership, while in Chhattisgarh after Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel completed his two and a half years in the post in June Camp TS Singhdeo claimed that the congressional leadership in 2018 agreed to hand over the post to him after the government completed half of its term.

Amarinder Singh resigned as chief minister, claiming he had been humiliated by Congress, eliciting a strong response from the party, with senior leader Harish Rawat saying the party still gave him respect.

When launching the campaign, Gehlot also said he would re-assign the Department of Urban Development and Housing to Shanti Dhariwal if Congress wins the next elections in Rajasthan because he has worked hard for the campaign.
