The has the unity and uniformity while the Congress has several faces and is a divided house. Various Congress leaders have already become chief ministers and formed their cabinets even before the elections but the workers would clear their misunderstanding in the upcoming assembly elections, she said.

The meeting was attended by the BJP workers from 31 assembly constituencies, including those from Bikaner, Churu, Hanumangarh, Jodhpur and Sriganganagar. The workers submitted to the chief minister their written suggestions in sealed envelopes.

Raje said the workers have the right to claim tickets from the party, but their targets should be to ensure that "lotus" blooms in the state again.
 

The chief minister also sought to ridicule the Congress' "optimism" over the tradition of the state having the BJP and the Congress governments alternatively since 1990 and said had it been so, the Congress would not have ruled the state for 50 years.

The chief minister said under the fears of loosing the upcoming state assembly elections, the Congress had moved the Supreme Court alleging the existence of fake voters in the state electoral rolls, but their plea was quashed by the apex court.
