Jaipur, Jan 5: BJP President Amit Shah will interact with the Ministers of Raje government for the first time here on Tuesday, Jan 5 with Opposition Congress claiming it as an indication of "change of guard" in the state.
Shah will arrive in the afternoon, and hold an interactive meeting with all ministers, including cabinet and MoS, of Rajasthan government at a hotel, state BJP President Ashok Parnami said today. This would be the first time that all the Ministers would be introduced to BJP president, Parnami said.
On a query whether it would be a review of Rajasthan Ministers' performance in the last two years, Paranmi said, "The meeting between Ministers and Party president will take its own course. It's difficult to predict. Of course, the central and state governments' development schemes could be on focal points".
Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje, party's Joint General Secretary V Satish, Avinash Khanna, state's party in charge and president Parnami will also be attending the meeting. According to Parnami, no party MLAs have been invited for the meeting.
Shah will return on the morning of January 7, as per his schedule. Meanwhile, Leader of Opposition (Congress) Rameshwar Dudi took a jibe at BJP President over his visit here and meeting with Rajasthan Ministers, saying that it showed the Chief Minister has lost the trust of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
In a statement yesterday, Dudi said, "Shah interacting with ministers is an indication of change of guard in the state." It is for the first time in the state, ruling BJP was compelled to organise an interactive meeting with the party head, he said.
He also alleged that BJP's Central leadership was probably aware of Raje government's mis-governance in last two years in Rajasthan.
