Education minister rubbishes differences with Raje

Written by: Staff

Jaipur, Mar 2 (UNI) Education minister Ghyanshyam Tiwari today rubbished the reported differences with the Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje Scindia over the Special Economic Zone (SEZ) issue in the Vidhan Sabha today.

Interrupting Congress legislator Chandrasekhar Baid from Churu, who was debating while delivering the vote of thanks on Governor's address, Tiwari said he never spoke of any differences with Raje over the SEZ issue in the media and had just said he would fight for the rights of Sanganer farmers.

Clarifying that he was in Tunisia when the Cabinet meeting was held which had fuelled speculation in the media that he had gone to New Delhi to complain about Raje to the high command.

But taking a stand against Tiwari's comment, Congress leader C P Joshi asked whether the minister agreed with the Cabinet decision on SEZ as the people of Rajasthan have a right to know about it. If not he should come out in the open.

There were heated exchanges between the legislators of both parties over the issue when Industry minister Narpat Singh Razvi, who is reported to be the second minister, said, ''we know from class IX only that people have a right to know about major Cabinet decisions.'' Baid also said the Governor's address mentioned that Rajasthan was no longer a BIMARU state. He questioned how could it be as a government letter dated February 3 had mentioned it as a BIMARU state. And the governor's address on February 28 said otherwise.
