In an interesting twist to the tale, several sections of the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP’s) OBC wing in Kota is ‘unhappy’ with incumbent state Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje.Different sections like farmers, are angry with the Raje government as per party members who wrote a letter to BJP chief Amit Shah.
“The people of the state are not happy with Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje’s style of functioning. The party workers are losing confidence due to her working style,” wrote Ashok Choudhary, head of the BJP’s Kota district OBC wing.
Later this year Rajasthan is heading for state Assembly polls.On February 1, the BJP government lost the by-polls to Lok Sabha seats of Ajmer and Alwar and Mandalgarh Assembly seat. Defeating BJP’s Shakti Singh Hada, Congress candidate Vivek Dhakar won Mandalgarh Assembly seat. In Ajmer, Congress candidate Raghu Sharma defeated BJP’s Ramswaroop Lamba, while in Alwar, Congress leader Dr Karan Singh Yadav defeated the BJP’s Jaswant Yadav.
On February 2, the very next day, Choudhary wrote the letter to Shah.Terming state president Ashok Parnami as a “slave of Raje”, Choudhary said he was continuously causing damage to the organisation.He further added that Raje had fallen into the “trap” of bureaucracy (IAS, IPS, RAS, RPS) and that her present actions can only lead to the party’s defeat in the state.
