The Diwali celebrations saw many tourists come to the Pink City for enjoying the lights and decorations. Markets went all out to win over customers as well as prizes.
To cover up for her notable absence, Raje did send a congratulatory letter to Poonia which was read out by BJP General Secretary, Bhajanlal Sharma.
Satish Poonia, who has an RSS background, said there would have been no Hindustan if not for the Sangh.
According to party sources, Raje was not consulted or taken into confidence in Poonia's appointment.
The 55-year-old Poonia was appointed as the state president of BJP Rajasthan on Saturday.
A four-time General Secretary of the state unit, Poonia’s choice is dictated by the needs of effective social engineering.
