JAIPUR: Amid a heatwave in Rajasthan, political temperatures have also risen in Jodhpur with the Congress fielding Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot’s son Vaibhav Gehlot, who will be up against Modi-Shah loyalist and Union minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat.

Gajendra had earlier stated that Vaibhav Gehlot was an outsider and not from Jodhpur.  On Friday, Ashok Gehlot answered the criticism.
