Media projections about CM candidate can be damaging: Gehlot

Press Trust of India  |  Sikar (Rajasthan) 

Former minister today about state being the party's chief- ministerial face for the Assembly polls, scheduled late this year.

"It is a trend at RPCC (state Congress) office that whenever a new party is elected, media projects him as the minister of the state, which causes damage to the party," Gehlot told reporters here.

The said he was similarly projected as the party's candidate by the media when he was elected as the RPCC president, but he did not fall in their "trap".

"Suddenly, the situation changed and I became the chief minister," the two-time said.

Asked about Rahul Gandhi's absence from the list of star campaigners for the state bypolls to be held on January 29, Gehlot clarified that the Congress does not campaign for bye-elections.

He exuded confidence of winning all three seats -- Ajmer, Alwar Lok Sabha, seat -- in the bypolls, adding that the party workers were upbeat and working hard in the poll-bound constituencies.
