Rajasthan CM Gehlot avoids questions on former Dy CM Pilot

The Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot stated on Wednesday that the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) in the state has been quite active and has also made a few arrests of civil workers, a day after Congress leader Sachin Pilot sat on a dharna seeking action in corruption cases under previous BJP governments.

The CM responded  that “his former deputy has stated that there has been no effective action in corruption cases of previous governments” to the question that “Do you know that (when compared to) the entire country, the number of raids by anti-corruption department here (is higher); many people, including four to five IAS, IPS officers, have been caught. Has this ever occurred in India?”

In a five-hour symbolic protest on Tuesday, Pilot had called for action in corruption cases that had occurred during the two terms of previous Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje.

Pay attention to Mehengai Rahat Camps The CM avoided further inquiries about Pilot’s protest throughout the press conference and instead concentrated on the upcoming “Mehengai Rahat Camps” (inflation relief camps), which will begin on April 24 and focus on 10 schemes (see box), as well as his “Mission 2030,” which calls for making Rajasthan the best state by 2030.

The CM tried to create the appearance that he is unconcerned by the demonstration, that everything is going as usual, and that the welfare of the people is his only concern by dodging questions about Pilot, who left for Delhi late on Tuesday to meet with the party high command.

Therefore, the CM stated that he wants to raise awareness of the ongoing programmes so that every person who qualifies can benefit from the government’s welfare programmes.

There will be about 700 camps initially, and they will grow to 2,700 sites. According to the CM, the camps will continue to operate until everyone who wishes to sign up for the programmes has done so.

“The people of Rajasthan put a lot of effort into improving their economic situation and providing their children with the greatest upbringing and education possible. However, inflation holds them back and obstructs their advancement. And if the people don’t advance, neither will the state nor the nation, the CM continued.
