Rajasthan BJP launches ‘Halla Bol’ stir against Gehlot govt
The Bhartiya Janata Party Rajasthan unit has launched a coordinated campaign against the Ashok Gehlot government. On social media, it was called ‘BJPKaHallaBol’.
Rajasthan BJP state President Satish Poonia accused the Ashok Gehlot led Congress government of betraying people of Rajasthan by not fulfilling poll promises. Poonia said that the Gehlot government has spent most of its time camping in resorts when farmers needed power and fertilizer. He attacked the Rajasthan government on power tariff hike, unemployment, and the law and order situation in the state.
“In its manifesto, Congress made promises to farmers on loan waivers and (then Congress President) Rahul Gandhi had said `Ab Hoga Nyay` (Now there will be justice). Now we ask, `Kab Hoga Nyay? (When will there be justice?)`,” he said.
Many state BJP leaders went live on Facebook and posted videos with hashtag #BJPkaHallaBol.
Poonia said that the BJP demanded a four-month waiver on electricity bills but the government, instead, increased the burden on consumers. “The state government ran away from the Assembly over burning issues, including electricity, law and order and locust attacks but they cannot hide from the public,” he said.
Union Minister Kailash Chaudhary also addressed the Halla Bol program, via social media, and accused the state government of breaking all its promises.
