Led by Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje, the state government has thrown its weight behind the efforts of BJP to win the upcoming Lok Sabha by-polls in Ajmer and Alwar. CM Vasundhara Raje will be touring both these constituencies with an aim to strengthen the party, and ensure due attention is given to pending public works. She will be on a four-day visit to Ajmer beginning October 5, and soon after, from October 8, the state executive of the BJP would meet for two days in Alwar. Both these tours have apparently been fixed in view of the by-elections.
At the same time, Sachin Pilot on Tuesday launched a four-day long padyatra in CM’s electoral hometown, seeking a complete farm loan waiver. Though the elections for these seats are yet to be announced, the increased activity underlines the importance of the by-polls for both the Congress and the BJP, ahead of the state assembly polls late next year.
The CM is learnt to have instructed the officers to take up the stalled development works in Alwar and Ajmer on priority. During her Ajmer tour, Raje is likely to visit all the assembly constituencies of the district.
BJP state secretary Mukesh Chelawat said that the party is on its way to winning both the seats. He said that local office-bearers would give inputs to the state leadership during the party’s state executive meet in Alwar on October 8 and 9, and that equal emphasis will be given on communicating the achievements of the incumbent government. The party has also lined up a strong team of booth-level workers to see it through the polls, he said.
On the other hand, stating that Congress will emerge victorious in by-polls, party’s state vice-president Dr Archana Sharma said, “Not just the general public, but even BJP party workers are disappointed with the government due to increasing crime and corruption.”
