Jaipur, December 03: In the wake of the initial poll trends favoring the BJP in Rajasthan, Union Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat seized the moment on Sunday to take a playful dig at Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, suggesting that the electorate had emerged from the enchantment of the state's political "magician."
"The 'magic' has dissipated, and Rajasthan has broken free from the spell of the magician. People have cast their votes in support of women's dignity and the betterment of the underprivileged," remarked Shekhawat, subtly alluding to Gehlot's familial background deeply entrenched in the world of magic, wherein he assisted his father during his performances.
Shekhawat further remarked to reporters, "The people have repudiated the assurances of the Congress. Their vote signals a rejection of corruption within the Congress ranks." Expressing confidence, he emphatically stated that the BJP is poised to secure a resounding victory in the state, implying a significant mandate.
According to the Election Commission of India's latest updates, the BJP holds a lead in 99 out of 199 seats, while the Congress is trailing with leads in 77 seats. These early numbers provide an initial glimpse into the unfolding political landscape as Rajasthan eagerly awaits the final verdict of the electorate.
