New Delhi, Aug 9: Rajasthan chief minister Vasundhara Raje will cover 165 Assembly constituencies by road out of the total 200 constituencies in the state Assembly. The remaining 35 constituencies will either be covered by chopper along with the central leadership of the party or with party president or the Prime Minister.
Rajasthan Bharatiya Janata Party spokesperson Vimal Katiyar told One India that around 27 seats of the Jaipur region (sambhag) and around 7-8 seats of the Ajmer (sambhag) region will be covered by chopper by the chief minister along with the Central BJP leadership. Rajasthan Gaurav Yatra launched in the presence of BJP president Amit Shah in its attempt by the BJP leadership to retain power in the state once again. Raje will be covering more than 6,000 km during the 40-day-long Rajasthan Gaurav Yatra by road.
The yatra was started from Charbhuja Nath temple in Rajasthan's Rajsamand district in the presence of party president where too she had a huge rally.
Katiyar said that besides relying on the work done by the state government and the Centre, the BJP leadership is also capitalising on the infighting of the Congress that is resurfacing time gain and again. The BJP has already organised one big rally of the PM and also one by the party president but the Congress has not been able to put up a joint show of even the state leadership making things difficult for the Congress and easy for the BJP.
"We are working out programmes of the central leadership but that will be done as the elections will come closure. Not only the PM and party president but chief ministers and deputy chief ministers from other BJP-ruled states will campaign for the BJP in Rajasthan.
Participation of Gujarat chief minister is crucial for Rajasthan," said a BJP leader. State Congress president Sachin Pilot had said that they would ask the CM one question every day during her 40-day tour of the state.
