Leaders of major political parties had also reached the Mahapanchayat. These include Mamta Bhupesh and Tikaram Jully. They are ministers in the Rajasthan government. At the same time, Congress MLA Ganga Devi was also present on the stage. However, after the controversy over giving a speech on the stage, the ministers of the Gehlot government left the mahapanchayat.

Minister Meghwal stopped from speaking

In the mahapanchayat of Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes, there was a situation of controversy when the organizers refused to allow the minister to speak for a long time. There was a dispute over this. 

In fact, when Disaster Relief Minister Govind Meghwal was giving a speech, there was a controversy. As soon as Meghwal started his speech in the Mahapanchayat, the organisers asked him to finish the speech in two minutes. In the meantime the minister was also interrupted. Minister Meghwal got angry. 

Meghwal stopped talking in the middle and said that you should understand that the speech is over. When I cannot say what I want on the stage, then what is the meaning of speaking. Saying this, Minister Meghwal got down from the stage and left the programme. 

Slogans were raised while he got down from the stage. Ministers Mamta Bhupesh and Bhajan Lal Jatav from Mahapanchayat, Tikaram Julie also left the program and went out. This mahapanchayat was held at Mansarovar Ground in Jaipur regarding about 22 pending demands of Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes.

SC-ST Act was not followed

A lot of displeasure was also expressed in the mahapanchayat of Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes over the non-compliance of the SC/ST Act. The leaders said that the SC-ST Act has been implemented since 1990, but in Rajasthan, the government made rules in 2011. The Act was also amended in 2015 and 2019.

A committee has been constituted under the chairmanship of the Chief Minister. In which the cases registered under SC ST law are reviewed. But displeasure was expressed over the delay in the reconstitution of this committee. Along with this, displeasure was expressed over laxity in solving the problems faced in the implementation of its decisions due to lack of regular meetings of the committee.
