Health Minister Raghu Sharma said the infighting in the opposition party has clearly surfaced.
While the ultimate decision will be made in 2023, the 'Jan Aashirwad Yatra' has certainly made Union Minister Bhupendra Yadav a potential CM face for Rajasthan.
It was interesting to see that the posters this time also included former CM Vasundhara Raje. She was dropped from all posters at the BJP headquarters in Jaipur two months ago.
Denior leader Rohitashva Sharma asserted that through this Rath Yatra an 'environment to make Vasundhara Raje the Chief Minister of Rajasthan in 2023 will be created'.
The minister also exuded confidence that the Congress will retain power due to welfare schemes launched by the state's Ashok Gehlot government.
In the clip, Raje can also be heard directing the forum's district president Tarachand Sharma to continue running the 'Vasundhara Raje Samarthak Manch'.
While Rohitash Sharma is yet to respond to the party’s notice on charges of indiscipline, he was quick to use the old letter of Satish Poonia to embarrass the state BJP Chief.
Poonia, a known Raje critic, said the decision on who would get a place on posters is taken by the Central leadership.
Earlier, the main hoarding at the party headquarters had photographs of former CM Vasundhara Raje and deputy leader of Opposition Rajendra Rathore along with Satish Poonia and Gulabchand Kataria.
With former Rajasthan chief minister Vasundhra Raje returning to active political life, the state BJP is seeing the emergence of factionalism.
Tiwari said he is completely committed to the BJP's ideology and though he had shared the stage with the Congress once, he had never accepted its membership.
On Friday, Shekhawat tweeted: “Yato Dharmastato Jayah”. Earlier, he told reporters that the voice in the tape wasn’t his and that he would cooperate with any investigations.
With Gehlot and Pilot camping in Delhi on Saturday it seems that the tussle between the two leaders has made the central leadership more anxious.
Raje is also said to have held several meetings in Jaipur over this past weekend to review the scenario.
