In a powerful address at a rally in Chittorgarh, Prime Minister Narendra Modi raised the shocking murder of a tailor in Udaipur to highlight the incompetence of Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot’s government.
The grisly murder, which took place in July last year, saw the throat of Kanhaiya Lal, a tailor, being slit by individuals who later shared a video of the act online.
PM Modi used this incident to question the state government’s performance on the law and order front, implying that Ashok Gehlot had already accepted defeat.
Ashok Gehlot’s Failure to Ensure Law and Order
Addressing the crowd, PM Modi spoke about the heinous murder of Kanhaiya Lal, a tailor who had received threats for supporting a former BJP spokesperson.
The Prime Minister questioned the government’s ability to maintain law and order, asking whether anyone could have imagined such a gruesome act happening in a place like Udaipur.
He highlighted the fact that the murderers not only took the life of an innocent person but also recorded a video of their deed and shared it on social media.
PM Modi did not shy away from criticizing Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot’s performance in running the state government.
He stated that the Congress had formed the government by misleading the people, but Gehlot had failed to govern effectively due to his preoccupation with saving his chair.
The remarks were seen as a reference to the infighting within the Congress party, particularly between Ashok Gehlot and Sachin Pilot.
Assurance of Continuity and Improvements
The Prime Minister reassured the public that the BJP would not stop any public schemes initiated by the Congress government.
He emphasized that the BJP would instead aim to improve these schemes and ensure their continuity.
PM Modi’s guarantee aimed to alleviate concerns raised by Ashok Gehlot, who had requested assurance that the BJP would not discontinue the existing schemes if they come to power in the upcoming elections.
Responding to speculation about the BJP’s choice for the Chief Ministerial candidate, PM Modi made it clear that the lotus symbol, represented by the term “Kamal,” is the face and candidate of the BJP.
He dismissed any plans of announcing a specific Chief Ministerial face ahead of the polls, indicating that the party’s focus is on the symbol and ensuring the victory of the party as a whole.
Crimes Against Women and Corruption
Highlighting another aspect of the Ashok Gehlot government’s failure, PM Modi addressed the rising crimes against women in Rajasthan.
He expressed his anguish about the atrocities faced by daughters across the country, but specifically accused the Congress of turning it into a tradition in Rajasthan.
Furthermore, the Prime Minister mentioned the alleged paper leak case in the state government’s job recruitment exams.
He promised to investigate the matter thoroughly and take action against those involved in corruption and exploiting the poor.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s speech at the rally in Chittorgarh shed light on the Udaipur tailor’s murder, using it as an example of the law and order failures of Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot’s government.
He criticized Gehlot’s inability to effectively run the state and highlighted the internal battles within the Congress party. PM Modi also assured the public that the BJP would continue and improve public schemes initiated by the previous government.
The address touched upon the crimes against women in Rajasthan and the alleged corruption in the state government’s job recruitment exams.
As the upcoming elections in Rajasthan draw closer, these issues will continue to shape the political landscape of the state.
