What Will Happen In Rajasthan BJP, Will BJP Present Gajendra Singh Shekhawat As CM Face Or Once Again Bet On Vasundhara Raje?


Jaipur: In the last 2018 assembly elections also, this trend continued and the BJP was ousted from power. Now assembly elections are to be held again at the end of the year. BJP is seeing hope of change of the rule due to this custom.

Tussle among big leaders of BJP

There is already a tussle among the big leaders of BJP in the state regarding the face of Chief Minister. In such a situation, who will be the face of the Chief Minister in Rajasthan remains a big challenge in front of the BJP as well. Will BJP once again bet on Vasundhara Raje or this time Gajendra Singh Shekhawat will be chosen as the head of the government. 

Many leaders are in race

It can be said that apart from Vasundhara, there are many names who are in the race to become the face of the Chief Minister. In which, apart from Vasundhara Raje and Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, the names of Om Prakash Mathur, Rajendra Rathore, Satish Poonia, who is handling the responsibility of BJP state president, are also in the race.

Om Prakash Mathur is currently handling the responsibility of the state in-charge of Chhattisgarh. So Jodhpur MP Gajendra Singh Shekhawat has a good hold in the state BJP. He is handling the responsibility of the Union Water Power Minister in the Modi government at the Center.

Deputy Leader of Opposition Rajendra Rathore is a senior BJP leader. Rajendra Rathore has been the Minister of State for Rural Development, Panchayati in the 2013 Vasundhara government. He has won the election five times from Churu assembly seat. At the same time, Satish Poonia is currently handling the responsibility of Rajasthan BJP President.

Third group active for Shekhawat

Before the elections in Rajasthan, now the third group in BJP is engaged in the exercise of making Gajendra Singh Shekhawat the CM. However, Vasundhara Raje's supporters are still assuming that no other leader has been able to make such a direct connection with the people the way Raje has an emotional attachment. Sensing this, the picture of Vasundhara Raje, which was missing from the official posters of BJP for three years, has started appearing. Not only this, her name is also being taken with great respect.

Pro-incumbency visible in favour of Gehlot government

In Rajasthan, since 1993, it has become such a tradition that every time the government changes. Anti-incumbency dominates only after two and a half years of government and the ruling party loses in the by-elections.

The BJP had lost six of the eight by-elections held during the BJP's rule from 2013 to 2018. But this time pro-incumbency is clearly visible in Rajasthan. 

, Leader of Opposition Gulab Chand Kataria was made the Governor amidst a tussle in the BJP over the Chief Minister's face, while Kataria was also dreaming of becoming the Chief Minister of the state.

Tickets of 70 plus leaders could be cut

At the same time, the tickets of 70 plus leaders including Vasundhara Raje are seen to be in danger. In such a situation, along with Union Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, Satish Poonia is seeing his path easy. 

It is said that before the assembly elections, BJP can clear the picture regarding the CM face. Union Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat is considered close to PM Modi. In such a situation, it is believed that BJP can bet on Shekhawat.
