Jaipur, April 13: The Rajasthan state BJP has revived the issue of Bhanwari Devi murder case and accused Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot of her murder. According to some BJP leaders, the chief minister was aware that some people were blackmailing his own ministers but did not take any action. According to the BJP, had Bhanwari Devi been alive today, more Congress ministers would have been exposed.

Former MP and state BJP vice-president Jaskaur Meena said the media had brought the case to the notice of Gehlot three months before Bhanwari was killed but yet he didn't react. The party, however, looked divided on the issue of Mahipal Maderna, the former Congress minister who was accused of being involved in the case.

While Meena accused Maderna, other leaders like Rajendra Rathore and Diganber Singh sympathised with Maderna, saying he was a victim of political conspiracy.

Meena also took on the state Congress leadership alleging that the latter was using abusive language against Vasundhara Raje, the state BJP president and the chief ministerial candidate.
The BJP also demanded a response from Gehlot on the question of making Jaipur a world-class city.

She said Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi had promised so to the people of Jaipur and the chief minister also announced it a number of times. Meena said nothing has happened towards that direction in the last four-and-half years and the Congress government did not even unveil a vision document for the same.

Rajasthan is going to the polls later this year.
