Addressing a farmers’ rally in Jaipur, Rahul also said that the recent state elections showed Prime Minister Narendra Modi the “power of farmers”, and it is time Indian farmers showed their power to the world.
Dotasra’s predecessor in the post, Vasudev Devnani, now the MLA from Ajmer North, told The Indian Express in an interview that the Congress should not remove any mentions or references that the BJP government added.
The names of council of ministers were reportedly finalised by state Congress leaders, including Gehlot and Deputy CM Sachin Pilot, after rounds of discussion with party chief Rahul Gandhi and other senior leaders in New Delhi.
On Friday, Shah, who was in Ajmer to attend the ALF, said, “I don’t know why (people are criticising the comments), because what I said was as a concerned Indian... I don’t know what I have said now that I’m being called a traitor.
Gandhi met Gehlot and Pilot, who had earlier dug in his heels, to work out a compromise formula. Pilot, who had already conveyed to Gandhi that he had worked hard in the last five years to resurrect the party, settled for the Deputy CM post.
In an interaction with members of the business community and professionals in Udaipur, Rahul also said that Modi “reached into the Army’s domain and...turned their surgical strike into a political asset”.
Taking a jibe at Congress president Rahul Gandhi, Modi said the ones who don’t know whether there is a chana plant or a chana tree, who don’t know the difference between moong and masoor, they are now roaming to teach farming to the country.
