Former Chief Minister of Rajasthan, Ashok Gehlot, Thursday called the Vasundhara Raje led state government ‘invisible’ both to the people and the MLAs and termed the expenditure on its second anniversary celebrations ‘extravagant’.

Talking to The Indian Express, the Congress leader said that over the past two years, the state government has not done any work for the welfare of the public; the crime rate has increased and people are feeling unsafe.

Gehlot said the government had got into the habit of frivolous spending. Giving the example of the Resurgent Rajasthan summit held last month, he said the event ended up being a ‘get-together for big industrialists’.

The ex-chief minister slammed the ‘insensitive’ approach of the Raje government towards the death of former MLA Gurucharan Chabda, who died during his thunder strike demanding a liquor ban in the state and a strong lokayukt.

Calling the planned celebrations on the BJP government’s second anniversary ‘extravagant’, he said the government had given nothing to the people of the state during its tenure.
