Remove 'political glasses' to see development: Rajasthan CM to opposition


IANS  |  Jaipur 

Rajasthan stands tops in execution of many projects, but the opposition will be able to see these developments only if they remove their glasses stuck in "political frames", said Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje Scindia on Friday.

Replying to a discussion on thanksgiving proposal after Governor's address in the assembly, she said that Rajasthan led the country in successful implementation of several ambitious schemes.

The state government implemented Bhamashah Yojana, constructed toilets, connected largest number of cities with air-route, implemented eMitra schemes and developed Annapurna Bhandars, "but surprisingly, the opposition fails to see all these developments", the Chief Minister said.

Scindia said that her government would stick to the goal of bringing "sushasan" (good governance) and "seva" (service) to the people of state. "W will continue working to this end until our last breath," she added.

She said that during the last four days of assembly session, the opposition continued focussing on their victory on three seats, and the greed to grab the power was very much evident in their discussions.

"However, we are confident of emerging victorious in the coming elections. Lotus will bloom again as people here have put their trust in our party.

"We will meet here again -- you on your seats and we on our seats, after the next assembly elections," she added.

Rajasthan state ranked 26th during the Congress regime in education, but the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government brought it to third position by improving educational standards, she noted.

"The Congress installed foundation stones for projects worth Rs 51,000 crore during their last months in the government, but it was us who started work on these projects," she added.
